Governor's January / February 2020 Message

Governor Erik LaMarca

 Welcome to the Roaring Twenties!

My Brothers and Sisters it is 2020, and perhaps to understand the significance of our place in

time, is to look back 100 years ago. In 1920 President Woodrow Wilson suffered a Blood Clot

that left him with Brain Damage, Paralyzed and Blind. Does anyone know what happened to the

Presidency for the remainder of his term (The next 1 and half years)? 

His wife Edith Wilson stepped in his place and was indeed the de-facto President for the rest of his term. She went as far as making decisions on behalf of her husband and when an official signature was needed, she guided his hand on the pen to sign documents. This really happened! 

In addition, 1920 brought about the ratification of the 19th Amendment and the pinnacle of Women’s Suffrage, affording women the right to vote after many years of sweat and protest. Now 100 years later, we find ourselves on so many levels equal as men and women but at the same time still striving for complete balance. To the point that when you see success in a place like Ridgewood Moose Lodge #1642, it is not contributed to the Men of the Moose or the Women of the Moose but instead by our MEMBERS. I believe that day will come. We now stand at the brink of true social evolution within our Fraternal Order. So how do we make this a reality? My Brothers and Sisters, we already have. I am proud to be a part of a Lodge that views all it’s members with value. 

As a Lodge I view us as the cornerstone of a future of equality within our Loyal order. Each newsletter I try to find something important to share with all of you. This year that truth, that importance and the realization of equality has found me after a 100-year journey of mental and moral freedom for our sisters.

Next time you are in our Social Quarters or Hall and you look across the room and see one of our WOTM, I invite you to thank them; Thank them for everything they do for us, thank them for

choosing to be your sister, for being a part of something much larger than themselves. Thank

them for being a Moose. And while you are at it consider this, you as a Moose member are a person of such integrity that you are a capable of looking towards a community first before your own standing. Thank you all for your partnership, may we all benefit from the Roaring 20’s, may

we all come together in the divine truth that our future is yet to be written but the pen that will

write it, as if it is filled by the ink of our Love, Compassion and Empathy.

 Dear Co-Workers,

I hope the holidays were memorable. “2020” is our year for fun and growth. We are working hard to encourage members to get involved by volunteering and attending events. It is the memberships that keeps our lodge going and everyone’s help is needed. Please share with your family and friends the idea of being a moose member. I feel very strongly that as a chapter we can continue to grow. Through ideas shared, making them happen with our support this is what we are about. Mark your calendars for the upcoming events and lets make 2020 the year we spread the joy of being a Moose member. Looking forward to a blessed New Year, fun and new memories made with our Moose Family.
