Moose of the Month

Dana Whalen-Dana is one of the best volunteers at the Moose lodge. She has been a member since 2008. Dana used to volunteer for our "steak night". Then the lodge stopped using volunteers, and steak night went away. Well, now volunteers are needed again, and Dana has stepped up and advised she wanted to volunteer. We have called upon her for almost every holiday, and picnic we have, and she always gives up her personal time to volunteer.  Thank you Dana for all you do for the Merritt Island Moose Lodge 2073

Merritt Island Moose Legion Supports Lodge 2073

Merritt Island Moose Legion is holding their 20th Annual Car Show. Funds from this event are used to support the lodge and our Heart of the Community events allowing us to give back to the Brevard County Community. The event features show cars from around the area and are sure to delight kids and adults who attend. Attendance is free to the public and just $10 to show your car and enter the contest. The show runs from 11-2p with music by DJ Joystar. Prize trophies are awarded for People's Choice and Top Ten Best in Show. Food Trucks from the best Brevard County vendors. Join us for a fun day at the Merritt Island Moose Lodge. 

Moose Legionnaires feel an increased level of pride in membership. Opportunities to be leaders and to provide additional support for the Order’s philanthropic causes in relation to Mooseheart & Moosehaven are recognized through involvement in this degree.

Each lodge is encouraged to organize Moose Legion Committees. These groups hold various functions for the social enjoyment of the local members. By so doing not only do the members enjoy their membership even more, but additional support is generated for the lodge itself.

In May 2021 our Moose Legion allocated up to $2,000 to Rebuild the Horseshoe Pits outside the Patio on the North Side of the Lodge. In July 2021 The Merritt Island Moose Legion Donated $2,000 towards the purchase and installation of a new hood for the Lodge Kitchen.  In September 2021 $300 was donated towards prize money for an annual Lodge 2073 Poker Tournament. In January of 2022 the Moose Legion contributed $1,000 toward the purchase of a Digital Projector for use at Lodge function and this was used during the Super Bowl Party in the Hall. In July of this year your Moose Legion contributed $1,100 for upgrading the Hall Audio System.

In addition to supporting the Lodge During the last year our Lodge 2073 Moose Legion has has donated $2,652 to Moose Charites Endowment which goes to support the children at Mooseheart and our Seniors at Moosehaven

Please join us in November 2022 as we celebrate our newest Pilgrim John Schiethauer. A pilgrim is the highest degree of service for a Moose Legionaire.
