“No Man Stands So Straight And Tall As When He Stoops To Lift Up A Child.”

The Loyal Order of Moose is a fraternal and service organization founded in 1888, with nearly 1 million men in roughly 2,400 Lodges, in all 50 U.S. states and four Canadian provinces as well as Bermuda; along with its female auxiliary, Women of the Moose with more than 400,000 members in roughly 1,600 Chapters in the same areas and the Loyal Order of Moose in Britain these organizations make up the Moose International. It is headquartered in Mooseheart, Illinois. Moose International supports the operation of Mooseheart Child City & School, a 1,023-acre community for children and teens in need, located 40 miles west of Chicago; and Moosehaven, a 63-acre retirement community for its members near Jacksonville, Florida. Also, Moose Lodges and Chapters conduct approximately $75 million worth of community service (counting monetary donations and volunteer hours worked) annually. Additionally, the Moose organization conducts numerous sports and recreational programs, in local Lodge/Chapter facilities called either Moose Family Centers or Activity Centers, in the majority of 44 State and Provincial Associations, and on a fraternity-wide basis.

Kenosha Moose Lodge #286 has been around since 1910. From our humble beginnings, to our current Lodge, our Moose members have made us the BEST lodge in Wisconsin! In 2010, we have celebrated our centennial anniversary!

The Women of the Moose, founded in 1913, is a unit of Moose International, with more than 400,000 women in approximately 1,600 chapters in all 50 states and four Canadian provinces.

Along with other units of Moose International, the Women of the Moose supports the operation of Mooseheart Child City & School , a 1,000-acre community for children and teens in need, located 40 miles west of Chicago; and Moosehaven, a 70-acre retirement community for members, located near Jacksonville, FL.

Additionally, Women of the Moose Chapters conduct more than $20 million worth of community service (counting monetary donations and volunteer hours worked) annually.

Dedicated members of the Loyal Order of Moose continually look for ways to provide even greater service to our children at Mooseheart and our senior members at Moosehaven. The Moose Legion provides a venue for these enthusiastic members to direct and lead special programs that accomplish this fraternal mission. Moose Legionnaires come from all walks of life and occupations. They are leaders in their communities and they prevail in positions of responsibility and leadership within the Moose fraternity. Each Moose Legionnaire believes strongly in doing some good thing for someone each day.

The Kenosha Moose Riders are made up of members of the Kenosha, WI Moose Lodge #286. Our main purpose (besides riding) is to support Moose Charities, our Community, and our Lodge. Our activities and fundraisers serve as a great opportunity to raise interest in our Fraternity and our riding group, as well as a way to help out in our community. Not all our members have bikes, so a motorcycle is not a requirement to join. We meet every 3rd Monday night at 7:00 at the lodge. Feel free to stop by to meet some great people and find out what we are all about. Our Activity fee for 2017 Kenosha Moose Rider’s is only $10 per person so come join us for some fun! Follow us on Facebook (Kenosha Moose Riders) for the latest updates on our activities. Any questions can be forwarded to kenoshamooseriders@hotmail.com.
