Our Moose Lodge Gets A New Character
We recently accepted a new addition to our Lodge thanks to the generous donation and kind thoughts of members, Heather and Evan Nelson. This donation comes with a warm meaningful story.
While they were visiting Northern Wisconsin, they attended an outdoor fest that included a local chain saw artist, auctioning off his sculptured animals. One of his quality pieces being auctioned was a head sculpture of a Moose. As the auctioneer worked the bidding over $200.00, he accidently knocked the sculpture off the stand and broke the antler ears in half. This stunned not only the artist and the crowd, but also negated all bids on the damaged Moose. The sculpture, in everyone’s opinion was now useless and not wanted.
Until our Moose member Evan Nelson stepped forward and said he would pay $200.00 for the Moose, “as is”. The artist, without hesitation or questioning said “SOLD”. The Nelson’s took the injured Moose home to Illinois to cure the Moose’s antlers with a little wood artistry and varnish. Heather gave it a little more TLC by engraving “Lodge 2491” into the antlers. To the surprise of our members, they gifted the sculptured Moose to the Lodge during our annual Car Show.
When the Nelson’s told the story of how the Moose got damaged and they instantly purchased it with the thought of saving this Moose and giving it a good home, they were asked why they would? They’re comments were “Because it's similar to what the Moose organization does, rescues rejected troubled kids and finds them a good home”.
So next time you’re at the Lodge, be sure pat our new mascot for luck, located inside the front entrance of the Lodge, and hopefully you’ll run into Evan and Heather to tell them thanks for their pride and fraternalism for Mooseheart.

We are in a new Moose year and membership is very important for our lodge. We ended up being a little short from last year’s beginning. So let’s work a little harder and try to end up plus one from May 1.
Membership is the life blood of our lodge. Ask everyone you know if they would like to be a Moose member. We are having many activities going on this summer, so come on out and enjoy your lodge.
