Eagle Scout National Jamboree
The Hopewell Moose Lodge donated $750 to assist Drake Hannuksela in attending
the National Jamboree. Drake was selected by the Heart of Virginia Council to
represent central Virginia at the 2017 Boy Scout National Jamboree. Attending the
National Jamboree is a once in a lifetime experience for any dedicated Boy Scout.
In 2013, 30,037 youth and adult instructors attended the National Jamboree and
326 of those youth were from 18 different countries outside of the United States.
The National Jamboree is a 10 day event that is held once every four years and held
on 10,600 acres near the New River Gorge Recreation Area. Some of the activities
offered at the National Jamboree include: Stem Quest for High Technologies, State of the Art Exhibits, Numerous Merit Badges, Leadership and Citizenship Skills, Kayaking, Paddle Boarding, Rock Climbing, Scuba Diving and Zip lines.
He obtained the rank of Life scout (the last rank before becoming an Eagle Scout) in March 2017. Drake’s current plan is to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout by the summer of 2018 at the age of 16. He is currently a ninth grade student at N.B. Clements Junior High in Prince George and an active in Oakland Baptist Church. Troy King, Junior Past Governor

Senior Regent Message
I know many parents are rejoicing of the kids going back to school, and the rest of us are ready to welcome the cooler temperatures. With the coming of September we only have two months until the Women of the Moose “Fall Bazaar”. The Women will have the pool house available to work on crafts for the months of September and October. Another option is to work on projects at home and bring them in for the sale, There will be a bake sale the day of the Bazaar. The Bazaar is November 4th ,with sales available November 3rd during Friday night dinner hours. Also, in October, there will be a White Elephant on the 11th to help raise funds for the Community Service Committee. I hope to see all of you there!

The Hopewell Moose Lodge, 2nd Annual Car & Bike show was another great success. With the assistance of our host, The Southern Knight Cruisers, our car show was an even bigger success than last year. With approximately 100 beautiful cars, bikes & trucks, more vendors & even more participants this year we have grown another great event.
With the help of the volunteers of the LOOM, WOTM, Moose Legion & our host, the Southern Knight Cruisers, we were able to raise $? to benefit our soldiers and their families through the Holiday Helpers Association at Fort Lee.
This was a wonderful event that was open to the public as another opportunity to showcase our lodge, our home, and our Moose family. All while supporting those that give so much.
The Holiday Helper Association strives to ensure the holiday season for wounded warriors and nominated military members facing difficult times is a memorable one by allowing them to shop at the Fort Lee Holiday Helper toy store free of charge. We also offer food vouchers to assist with their family meal, stocking stuffers, hats and mittens, homemade infant blankets, books, puzzles, a live tree if needed and so much more.
VMA Membership Campaign
for 2017 - 2018
Written by Calvin Green
Published: 01 May 2017
Supporting members is something that has always been important to the Moose. So, it is no surprise that our newest Virginia initiative, the "VMA Membership Campaign" program, has drawn so much interest from Loyal Order of Moose members.
The focus of this program is on recognizing the support of members within our state with an emphasis on their ongoing work to sign up quality new members and re-enrollment of great former members. Our new VMA Membership Campaign starts on May 1, 2017 and runs until April 30, 2018. Just pointing out the highlights of this program year's campaign you can receive one year's free dues, earn a "Super Sponsor" shirt, and take part in winning $2,500 in cash prizes. And, District Presidents not to be left out, you can win one year's free membership and be included in the drawings for the $2,500, if you have a plus membership within your district.
100 YEARS of LOOM

our very own,
Lodgic is an ambitious new plan to do more of what the Moose has been doing since 1888. We’re the Moose Lodge, a.k.a. the Loyal Order of Moose. We’re one of the original fraternal service organizations that shaped the 20th century in America, and we were doing great things long before Fred and Barney joined Bedrock’s Water Buffalo Lodge.
We’ve been supporting communities, inspiring working families, and caring for at-risk children for more than 100 years. Lodgic is an all-new way for a new generation to do the timelessly good things we've always stood for — to work hard, take care of each other, and have fun.
We can’t wait to begin making new friends in Champaign and other cities soon!
Fellowship Degree of Honor
A Fellow is someone who has been a leader and is now often an all-important mentor to newer members, helping guide them along a fraternal leadership path towards enhancing our existing programs. They continue to serve in various ways to keep their fraternal units strong, often through positive efforts in membership recruitment and retention.
Membership is generally comprised of those who take an active role in building membership, serving on committees and volunteering their time & talents in service to Moose programs. Those who serve as Chairmen of various committees and as officers in the: lodge, Moose Legion, district and associations are most often recognized and recommended for advancement.
The Committee, which is comprised of current Pilgrims and Fellows, met last fall to select the most qualified Moose Legionnaire for such a great honor. For 2017, the Hopewell Moose Lodge Fellowship Committee selected Gerry Mastrovito. Gerry has proven himself over the years by taking on the toughest positions in the lodge, serving with distinction, never faltering, increasing membership and volunteering at every opportunity.
The Fellowship Committee looks forward to Gerry taking on bigger and better things in the lodge, stepping up to serve on more committees, volunteering more of his time, mentoring members to take his position, while he continues to excel in the Moose. We are sure he will make us proud.
Congratulation to Gerry Mastrovito for earning your Fellowship Degree of Honor.
