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.

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

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.
