Mission Statement
The mission of our Organization is to strive for excellence in four areas:
1. A fraternal program and community service within our Lodge and Chapter system;
2. To provide a family environment and education for children in need and in residence at Mooseheart, Illinois;
3. To provide for the needs of senior members at Moosehaven, Florida; and
4. To promote membership growth and financially strengthen our fraternity.

It’s hard to believe that 2011 has come and gone already! With the New Year upon us, let’s take a minute to look back at what WE were able to do last year. On a national level, our Lodge earned the gold level premiere Lodge award as well as the Governor’s award of excellence. These awards are given to the Lodge’s that have met or exceeded the criteria set forth by Moose International to be considered a premiere Lodge. On a regional level, we were awarded the regional manager’s award for top lodge and one of our own (Stephen Moynahan) was named Moose of the Year of the entire northeast. And then on the local level we were named the 2011 non-profit business of the year for the City of Dover. We held many various fund-raisers that allowed us to donate over $30,000.00 to local charities and people in need and we saw an increase in total volunteer man-hours worked by our members. I’d have to say that we had an exceptional year, and none of our accomplishments could have happened without the continued hard work, dedication and support given by our amazing members. Thank You all for all you do. Without each of you, none of what we do as a whole would be possible.
I wish you all a happy and prosperous New Year.
Fraternally yours,
Dan Moynahan

I have been really busy with all kinds of stuff going on
First of all I would like to thank all the people that have been working so hard this year for the good of the
Chapter and the Lodge.

A Thank You from Howie
Thank you to all that participated and helped to make last Friday’s Meat Raffle and “Deal or No Deal” a success!
From the
banker “Shrek” and his two sidekicks Rocky and Alan to the 26 friends that I got to call my “Ladies” for the game
show. We had several people attend and help that were not Moose Members and enjoyed the fun for the evening
as guest.
The contestant that played Deal or No Deal made a Deal with the “Banker” for $225, of which he donated $125
back to our cause. We raised approx.. $1,700 with the help of two Meat Raffles, Deal or No Deal and a generous
donation that Tom Bishop presented from his employer of $500.
This money will help several families in 18 different towns in New Hampshire and Maine this Christmas with food
and presents for their children to enjoy opening from under the tree.
We do a lot at the Moose and I am proud of the friends I have made over my short time as a Dover Moose member
as well as the support you all have given to me, with different fund-raisers to help others.
Thank you for helping to make a difference.
