Welcome to Loyal Order of Moose Lodge 947
The Loyal Order of Moose is a fraternal and service organization founded in 1888 with nearly 800,000 in roughly 1,800 Lodges in all 50 states, Canada, Great Britain and Bermuda. Along with other units of Moose International, the Loyal Order of Moose supports the operation of Mooseheart and Child City & School. A 1,000 acre community for children and teens is located 40 miles west of Chicago. Moosehaven is a 70 acre retirement community for its members near Jacksonville, Fl. Additionally, Moose Lodges contribute approximately $50 million worth of community service annually. The Women of the Moose, founded in 1913, is a unit of Moose International with more than 400,00 women in approximately 1,600 chapters. Women of the Moose Chapters contribute more than $20 worth of community service (counting monetary donations and volunteer hours worked) annually. Today’s Lodge works with community organizations for the good of our citizens and members. As a non-profit organization, we support our work and our building, by fundraising and hall rentals. We are always open for, and grateful to receive any donations to help further our cause of promoting the “family unit”.
