The Lodge was instituted March 13, 1966 and the first Governor was Glenn A Bland. A Charter was granted by International October 27, 1976. The WOTM was in instituted May 14, 1967 and the first Sr. Regent was Edna Griffin. Their Charter was granted by International October 24, 1976.

We purchased the Blue Moon Café in 1969 and it was our first permanent home. The building was located on this property but was in the front close to Highway 19. It burned down in the late 1960’s.The main part of our current building was built in the early 1970’s. We added the dance hall and adjacent rooms off the dance hall in 1988. We still have a number of members that were here in the beginning.

First and foremost, the goals of this Lodge are to support Mooseheart (a home for children in need) and Moosehaven (a home for many of our elderly members). We accomplish this goal by providing our members and their guests with a nice, clean and friendly Lodge to come to and enjoy the many activities we offer. It is also our goal to support the needs of as many local organizations as we can. We support them financially as well as volunteering our time.
