    A little of this, and a little of that…

    Here are a few tidbits I thought you might like…

    • The Independent Order of Foresters playground build in Raleigh, NC, was posted on the United We Serve blog. Congratulations to the IOF team for its commitment to this tremendously valuable project and to having it earn the recognition it deserves. Make sure to submit stories and photos of your society’s fraternal activity to United We Serve. It’s easy, just click here to fill out their online form.
    • Here’s a story from a small town in Texas that will tug at your heartstrings and demonstrate the power of fraternalism. Knights to the rescue, indeed.
    • Who says fraternals can’t embrace change? Check out this story from International Falls, MN, (isn’t that Bullwinkle’s hometown?)* about a local Sons of Norway lodge that’s evolving to meet the needs of a changing environment.
    • And finally, take a look at what one Texas member society is doing to help the families of the recent Ft. Hood tragedy.

    All these serve as a reminder that fraternals are as important and relevant today as they were over a century ago.  We make countless contributions to the lives of individuals, families, and communities every day of the year.  I tip my hat to each of you, and I am proud to be your advocate.  Have a safe and joy-filled Thanksgiving.  And please don’t stop sending me those wonderful stories of service.  In fact, I hope you’ll post them right here so that everyone can be inspired by them…


    *And ten points to the first person who posts the actual name of Bullwinkle's hometown in the comments below.
