Taylorville Kiwanis Club Hear from Local Moose Lodge Administrator At Tuesday Meeting

The Taylorville Kiwanis Club heard from the administrator of the Taylorville Moose Lodge, at their weekly meeting at the Taylorville Moose Lodge on Tuesday.


Dave Luttrell is the head of the local Moose Lodge that has some 400 men and women members.  



He shared a video that outlined what the Moose Lodge does and its objectives. The video stated that the Moose Lodge was founded in 1888 as a way to provide sick benefits to those too ill to work, and for schooling to children that lost one or both parents.


The video went on to say that the Moose Lodge internationally has 3 objectives:  Support the Mooseheart campus outside Chicago which provides a quality education to underprivileged children from infant age thru high school; local Moose Lodge chapters that create community programs for local children and youth; and to support the Moose Haven retirement community in northeast Florida open to Moose members age 65 and over.


During the question and answer session, Luttrell told the Kiwanis Club that the Taylorville Moose Lodge sponsors many events during the year to benefit local children and youth.


Local non-profit organizations that help children and youth are reminded that September 30 is the deadline to apply for Taylorville Kiwanis Club Foundation grants that will be considered by the Kiwanis Board at their October 4 board meeting.  The application is posted on the club’s Facebook page which can be reached at taylorvillekiwanis-dot-com.


The Taylorville Kiwanis Club is part of a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time.  Weekly meetings are held Tuesdays at noon at the Taylorville Moose Lodge.  For information on the club, go to taylorvillekiwanis.com.
