Georgia Moose Association


Georgia Lodges and Chapters,

As you know, our annual donations to Special Olympics through Moose Charities is one of the six points required for a successful community service program.  the Moose organization uses these donations to  and the unused monies are returned to our state programs.   

Thank you to Moultrie 1158, Albany 1285, Griffin 1503, Cartersville 1931, Canton 2129, Kings Bay 2418, and Monroe County 2424 for their full $100 donations; also Statesboro 1089 and Savannah 1550 for their partial payments.  I do not have a listing of any chapters that may have donated, but thank you if you also have met this criteria.

If your lodge is not listed, please consider getting your donations out for this program or setting up a partial payment plan to fulfill this obligation. 


All Lodges, Chapters, and Moose Legions are reminded of our Special Olympics 
project where each unit donates $100 to Moose Charities earmarked for Special 
Olympics. Councils of Higher Degrees, Districts, and State or Provincial 
Associations are also encouraged to participate. After expenses incurred from 
our International sponsorships, any remaining funds are returned to the state 
Special Olympics offices based on that State's/Provincial's contributions. 
Everybody wins!!

It is especially important to our state. Do you realize that Georgia has more 
participating Special Olympic athletes than any other state in the country? We 
have already held numerous state level events including tennis, swimming, 
bowling, and equestrian. 

The year is now half over, and only Albany ($125), Canton, Cartersville, and 
Kingsbay lodges have honored their commitment, with Griffin having donated $25 
towards its goal. This is part of our six-point community service requirement. 
Lets all submit our funds and get Georgia at 100%. Please e-mail me and let me 
know when you have donated to this cause. Thanks.
