What is a Moose?
Muskego Moose Lodge

A Moose member is a man belonging to the Loyal Order of Moose, or a woman belonging to the Women of the Moose. These members, over 1.6 million strong, make up the two components of the fraternal organization known as Moose International. Their membership is held in any one of 2,100 Lodges and 1,600 Chapters throughout the United States, Canada, Great Britain and Bermuda. Moose International headquarters is approximately 38 miles west of Chicago at Mooseheart, Illinois.

Men and women join the Order for a variety of reasons, including Family Activities, Community Service projects and member sports programs, just to name a few. While these activities offer each Moose member a valid reason to join, the main endeavors of the fraternity remain Mooseheart, the 1,200 - acre Illinois home and school for children in need, and Moosehaven, the 63-acre Florida retirement community for senior members in need. These residents, entrusted to the care and support provided by membership in the Moose, are constant living reminders of the humanitarian efforts of Moose members.

Who Are We? In the early 1990s, the Moose organization decided to rethink the entire idea of what a fraternal facility and its programs need to be about in the 21st Century-de-emphasizing our Social Quarters, and placing greater emphasis on programs designed to appeal to every segment of our members' families in facilities called Family Centers. These members - responsible men and women and their children, make the Moose program strong and active in communities all across North America.

While our focus is changing to better serve the family at the Lodge, the commitment to the Moose fraternity's missions remain as strong as ever. Lodges and Chapters across the fraternity contribute to Moose-sponsored programs such as Mooseheart and Moosehaven, and also to people in their own communities through Community Service initiated by members of the Lodge.

Wayne "Bear" Lesperance

Celebration of a Life

On Sunday, August 9th, a Celebration of Life was held at our Muskego Moose Family Center for former Muskego Lodge Governor, Wayne ‘Bear’ Lesperance. The celebration included a Moose Tribute Ceremony. Bear, as he was lovingly known, had been aware of the Moose organization for many years prior to becoming a member himself on February 22, 2005. As a new member he quickly became involved and was elected to the Lodge (men’s) board of officers; this cumulated with Bear being elected Lodge Governor, a position he held from May 2006 to April 2008. Bear was instrumental in making many positive changes as the Muskego Moose continued to grow. The lodge was nominated for a Shining Star (most improved) during his tenure; he and his wife, Sandy, who was Chapter Senior Regent at the time, attended the Moose International Convention and were seated on stage together as Muskego was honored. Bear earned his Past Governor’s title on May 1, 2008. He continued to be an involved member and joined the Moose Legion, the Degree of Service, on December 4, 2007. Bear’s accomplishments and positive involvement with the Moose was recognized when he was bestowed the Fellowship Degree on September 24, 2011. He continued to offer his services to the Moose organization and became Family Center Chairman for the WI State Moose Association. Bear became a member of the 25 Club easily by inviting more than 25 friends and family to sign up and join the Moose Organization. Bear was always a presence at our Moose home: mentoring new Lodge officers, being part of the Audit Committee, helping plan and present the Family Picnics, supporting Youth Awareness, offering his computer skills for Sheepshead tournaments, just to name a few things. He never hesitated to jump in to help whenever and wherever needed.

Bear, we will fondly remember your smile, laugh, stories, jokes and wonderful conversations; each one of us cherishes our memories with you. We thank you for everything that you have done to make the Muskego Moose Home and Moose Organization better places. Sandy, your children and grandchildren will always have friendship and a home away from home here at the Muskego Moose lodge, a place you supported so selflessly. Bear, you will be greatly missed, but never be forgotten; you will always be part of the Muskego Moose Family Center.

Fraternally, your Brothers and Sisters of the Muskego Moose
