100 years of service

Mio Moose Lodge honors member veterans


MIO — The Mio Moose Lodge honored its veteran members at a dinner celebration Aug. 25.

Of the 34 registered, 23 were able to attend the event. In total those in attendance had 101 years of service among them. The oldest of the veterans, Jack Goodall, served in the Navy near the end of World War II.

Administrator Larry VanNorman said this event was a chance to honor those who have been continually dedicated to serving their country and community.

“Our focus at Mio Moose is service to the community,” he said. “We were happy to thank our veterans for all their dedication.”

The evening began with a dinner and was followed by a ceremony where each veteran was introduced and awarded a certificate of appreciation.

This ceremony is part of a larger program run by Moose International that issues special membership cards, certificates and pins made specifically for the event semi-annually. Moose International developed the program to recognize veterans’ ongoing service to fraternal units and communities.
