Terry L. Walls, Supreme Governor of the Loyal Order of Moose, will visit The Oak Island Moose Lodge No. 2059, 4239 Long Beach Road, on Sunday, May 15th, from approximately 11:00 AM until 4:00 PM as part of his travels across the state of North Carolina.
Several programs are planned for that date in celebration of his visit including a pork BBQ and Chicken cookout. The much recently attended Moosestock Open Mic session will perform from 1 to 5. This event is open to the public.
For more information about the event contact the Moose Lodge office at 910-457-5947.
Walls rose from the post of supreme junior Governor to become the Moose Fraternity’s Chief Presiding Officer on July 7, 2015, elected by vote of Supreme Lodge delegates to a one-year term as supreme governor at the organization’s 127th International Convention in Nashville, Tenn.
The Moose organization, headquartered at Mooseheart, Ill., consists of nearly 1.1 million men and women in approximately 1,600 lodges and 1,400 chapters throughout the U.S., Canada, Great Britain and Bermuda.
The organization owns and operates Mooseheart, a 1,000-acre community and school for youngsters in need, located 40 miles west of Chicago; and Moosehaven, a 75-acre retirement community near Jacksonville, Fla.
Additionally, Moose lodges and chapters conduct more than $90 million worth of community service annually, counting monetary donations, miles driven and volunteer hours worked.
Such community service can be tailored to local needs but also takes the form of organization-wide programs.
One of these programs includes Tommy Moose, where lodges and chapters have provided nearly 200,000 plush Moose figures since 2003, free of charge to emergency workers and hospitals to give to children in stressful situations.
Additionally, the Moose Youth Awareness Program annually brings together hundreds of bright teenagers for Youth Congresses to discuss the most effective ways to conduct “Kids Talks,” communicating positive life choices messages to very young children, ages 4-9. Moose-trained teens have given Kids Talks to more than 700,000 youngsters across North America since 1990.
