I don't get it honestly, what positive benefits dose being a member offer? My friend is a moose member and all he dose is sit at the bar all weekend...no thanks. Not trying to be negative, just my thoughts.

There is a shack ( for loss of a better term, because it is very nearly just that)nearby me,
That had " loyal order of moose" plastered on the front wall.
I think I've laughed my ass off a hundred times , driving by reading that. It always reminded me of the episode of the flintstones, where Fred is the " grand pooh pah"
I cant remember ever seeing anyone come in or out of it.
Figured it was something from years gone by.I guess this must still exist?

Our local moose lodge has steak night every thursday. It's 8.99 for huge ribeye and tons of other stuff. I was thinking about joining for just the steak......But the smoke in the place has always turned me off.

My moose friends joined because the city banned smoking and they can still smoke in there.

Is a moose member the male version of a moose knuckle?

They actually sponsor a old folks home and orphanage. I eat breakfast there on Sundays once in a while when home, curious if anyone was a member.


The children's home they sponsor is probably only reason I'm not dead or in prison.

Interesting subject - Not trying to be negative either but I would guess people join fraternal organizations mostly to well fraternize. Sorta like we are doing now cyber-wise. I see nothing wrong with that. I prefer to drink with groups of friends also.

These organizations hit their peak after WWII - in fact most started then. I think it was a signature activity and statement of the fifties that - we're all brothers , we're all the same, and we're all in this together - which was a very strong sentiment during the war. Maybe it was a way to extend that camaraderie after the war ended. I know my dad belonged to the Polish Falcons and some other local fraternal organization. he was a war hero but did not join any of the VFWs or legions or war veterans organizations. It was great fun for the kids - picnics and other outdoor stuff with lots of physical activity for the kids. of course you could choose to stay inside at the bar...

I've seen that a time or 2.

I'm very grateful for some of the people that raised me there, God, none of them, could help others should they ever cross my path again...
