Yuba City, Ca.
Rodney A. Hammond, Supreme Governor of the Loyal Order of Moose, will speak at Yuba City Moose Lodge No. 1204, 205 So. Walton Ave, at 5 pm on January 17, 2020 as part of his travels across the state of California. For more information about the event contact the Moose Lodge office at 530-67101204.
Hammond rose from the post of Supreme Jr. Governor to become the Moose Fraternity’s Chief Presiding office on July 1, 2019, elected by vote of Supreme Lodge delegates to a one-year term as Supreme Governor at the organization’s 131st International Convention in Las Vegas, NY.
The Moose organization, headquartered at Mooseheart, IL, consists of nearly one million men and women in approximately 1,500 lodges and 1300 chapters throughout the U.S., Canada and Great Britain.
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, FL. Additionally, Moose lodges and chapters conduct more than 460 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.
All members of the Loyal Order of Moose are cordially invited to meet the Supreme Governor of the Loyal Order on Friday, January 17th. Dinner will be served and is free to the first 297 to sign up. Doors open at 5 pm, dinner at 6 pm and program following.
Dinner will be salad, stuffed pork chops, potatoes, gravy and vegetable with dessert.
