This is What we do for Mooseheart
"I have now been at Mooseheart for a little over five years. I have changed a lot, but I do believe that it has been for the better. I am now more respectful, kind, and more concerned for those around me. I know what behaviors are expected in different settings and situations. I have also really Matured not just in my actions, but also in my thoughts. Through my leadership roles in sport, clubs, and Mooseheart's ROTC program, I have acquired better people skills. After all the opportunities giving to me, I wish to give them back by going into the U. S. Military.

After high school,I wish to attend Lewis University of Romeovillie,Illinois. Here, I wish to study Aviation mechanics while going through their Air Force ROTC program. I know that none of this would be possible if it weren't for the love and care from others. So, the best way to give back to those individuals is to protect their liberties and other freedoms. This, I pray, will be compensation enough for all that has been given to me our of love. Thank you for always being there for me."

Christopher Schwartz, Mooseheart Class of 2014

Nails in the Fence
There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer
a nail into the back of the fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into
the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence. Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the
father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell
his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, “You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. But it won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound will still be there. A
verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.” Remember that friends are very rare
jewels, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share words of praise and they always want to open their hearts to us.

Winter Haven Moose Lodge Honor
When the Mayor of Winter Haven was invited to meet our Esteemed Supreme Governor in March, he accepted without really knowing all that we do. After hearing of our beloved twin cities and their residents, the support we show towars the TRIO program, Boy's & Girl's Scouting programs and numerous sports teams that we sponsor and the Florida Sheriff's Youth Ranch, he was so moved that he presented the Loyal Order Board with a Proclamation. Quite an honor for us!

Did you know all of the things that our Moose Fraternity represents, and the programs we in Winter Haven support?? Did you know that only a portion of you annual dues goes to the Lodge itself, and the rest help support Moose Heart and Moose Haven?? Members like you and me, across the United States, Great Britain and Canada all pay their dues every year to continue the support and operation of our two greatest achievements, quite an honor for us all!

Community Service Projects for LOOM and WOTM
Yes! LOOM- We still collect Aluminum Can Pull Tabs, we help the Lion's Club collect old prescription glasses. There is a container for them near the main door in the Lodge. Please bring in the items to help with our community servicer projects. Thank you for supporting your Lodge.

WOTM-We are collecting the Campbell Soup Labels and Box Tops for Education. Please save them and bring it into the WOTM Office or give it to our Moose Charities. We will do the work in counting and mailing them into Moose Charities.

Here is a list of some of the other items that we are collecting or that you can do:

1. “GoodSearch.com” By using this search engine on your computer instead of yahoo or google, GoodSearch will pay Moose Charities one penny for each inquiry.
2. “Goodshop.com” A percentage of up to 30 % of your purchase will also go to Moose Charities.
3. General Mill’s “Boxtops for Education” Immediate cash is sent to Moose Charities when you clip the ten-cent coupons from many General Mills products.
4. Target “Take Charge of Education” Every time you use your TARGET Redcard, Target will donate 1% of your purchase to Mooseheart schools. There are only 125 moose members enrolled in this program nationwide.
5. “Recycle for Mooseheart” This is a no brainer for all. You simply collect ink cartridges, laptop computers, cell phones including all accessories, children’s electronic games, and digital cameras from yourself, family, and local businesses.
6. Campbell’s “Labels for Education” By simply clipping the bar codes from Campbell’s soup and Pepperidge Farm products we can earn either 1 or 5 points. Think about it, if every member of this fraternity would just save one
Campbell’s soup label bar code we could receive a new van to transport our children!
7. Food Lion “Shop and Share” Simply register your MVP card - Each time you shop at Food Lion and use your card, a portion of your total grocery purchase will be donated to Mooseheart Schools.
8. “My Coke Rewards” Save the points from coke products and donate them to Mooseheart to obtain sports equipment, textbooks, school supplies and other rewards for our Mooseheart schools.
9. Tyson “Project A+” Simply clip and save the bar code from Tyson Project A+ labels and earn 24 cents for each one.
10. Terra-Cycle Terra-Cycle is a new addition to our recycle program. Trash collecting earns Mooseheart $0.02 each for items such as empty Capri Sun drink packets, Lays Chip bags, discarded candy and cookie wrappers, and many other snack and household item containers.
Terra-Cycle will in turn make backpacks, pencil cases, and other school supplies with the recycled items. Just think, all of these items would have been thrown away and they would end up in a landfill. This way we are doing our civic duty to keep America clean, green, and helping our children at Mooseheart. We are in a way picking from the “money tree” and giving to our children.
Please visit the Moose Charities website on a regular basis as we are constantly finding new programs to help Mooseheart.

Thank you for helping Moosheart School

Winter Haven Lodge NON-SMOKING Changes
In an effort to stay in front of the upcoming state edict on non-smoking, the Lodge Members and Board of Officers voted at the General Meeting held on October 3, 2013, to make the big room non-smoking along with the blue room.

This will be an effect on November 1, 2013!!!

Smoking will still be allowed in the Social Quarters until the law comes into effect.

We have been working on the plans for a designated smoking area for some time now, that will satisfy the Membership and the guidelines set forth by the state. We realize that this will not be an easy transition for anyone, so we ask your patience and understanding in accomplishing this.

Thank you.

Safe Surfin
The Safe Surfin' Foundation works to educate the public about Internet crimes against children and how communities can protect their children from becoming victims.

For more than a century, the Moose fraternity has had concern for the welfare of children at its core. So it should come as no surprise that the fraternity that cares enough about children to make Mooseheart a reality enters the 21st century with protection of children who use the Internet as a key concern.

As of the beginning of 2008, the Moose have entered into a partnership with the Safe Surfin' USA Foundation, a Virginia-based organization which has been a leader in attempts to keep the Internet a safe place for children to explore.

Our Lodge will be going around with donation cards. Please give so we can protect our children on the internet. Thank you

New Membership Card
Take a look at your Moose Membership Card....just a small piece of plastic, but oh so powerful!
Did you know that your Membership Card will allow you admittance to ANY Moose Lodge ANYWHERE in the US, and Canada?
Did you know that your Moose Membership Card also carries a whole list of other benefits, other than admittance to a Moose Lodge? Ask any officer, visit the web page or look for the brochure found in any Moose Lodge about the other wonderful benefits available to you because you are a member of this great Fraternity.
Did you remember the promise that you made when you signed the enrollment form, or when you attended the Enrollment Ceremony.....to strengthen our membership by inviting your friends and social contacts to join us? Did you know that if you sponsor two new members by April 2014, Moose International will pay your dues for you next year?...and if you sponsor two members every year, you could never pay dues again!?!?!
Are your dues expired? Did you get a notice in the mail from Moose International about your Dues renewal?.....If not, did you know that you can pay your dues on the internet? If you don't have internet access, you can pay your dues by mail, or see any Officer about how we can help get your dues paid.
In any case, please remember to renew your dues, and invite your friends, relatives and co-workers to join us. There are a lot of children and seniors that need your help, and you help hundreds of folks every year just by paying your dues.
