Moose Legion History
The two highest degrees
conferred on members of the Moose Fraternity are bestowed as a reward
for devotion and service to the programs of the Order. These are the
Fellowship Degree and the Pilgrim Degree of Merit.
Moose Legion Mecca 9
Mecca 9 is the regional association of Legions for north-eastern Illinois. However, while Mecca 9 oversees the regional aspects of the Legion, each lodge is responsible for it's own. In the case of Downers Grove Moose Family Center 1535, the Legion has responsibilities and privileges all it's own.
The Legion donates to scholarships, Lodge needs, Mooseheart and Moosehaven. We hold breakfasts and dinners in an effort to raise money.
But while those in the Legion have added responsibilities, they also receive added benefits. We hold Legion-only dinners, parties and picnics throughout the year. There are also the Legion meetings, held the first Sunday of the month, and much more.
The cost is $27.00 ($17.00 dues and a $10.00 application fee) and applications can be found in the Lodge lobby. See any Moose Legion member.
