We are the members of the Vienna Moose Lodge. We have a vibrant and amazing past and future. We were installed as part of the Moose International Fraternity on Tuesday, December 2, 1958. Over the years, we have supported our town of Vienna Virginia in many ways big and small. We strive to advocate for children and seniors and to uphold the traditions and ideas that were set in motion in 1888 when Moose International was created.
Our Moose Fraternity supports many different deserving charitable organizations and individuals through our philanthropic volunteering and donations, but our most important charities are Mooseheart and Moosehaven.
Mooseheart is a “child city” which was founded in 1913 as a place dedicated to providing a home for children in need. It is located 40 miles west of Chicago on a 1000-acre campus. It provides a place where kids can go and stay in a safe, secure, and nurturing environment while receiving a top-notch education. The school is home to kids of all ages from infancy to high school. Mooseheart takes in kids that have lost parents and others in just unhealthy environments.
We also support Moosehaven the "City of Contentment,” on the shore of the broad St. Johns River in Orange Park, FL, 15 miles south of metropolitan Jacksonville. It has provided thousands of Moose members and their spouses with a secure, relaxed, and enjoyable retirement experience.
With all we do for others, we work just as hard to make our members happy too! We regularly hold dinners, taco nights, chili cook-offs, Texas Hold’Em poker games, Cornhole competitions, kid’s parties, and holiday parties. We are always looking for ways to keep our members entertained.
So who are we? We are Moose members (nearly 1 million men and more than 400 thousand women strong) who believe in our fraternity, in its usefulness, in its influences and its accomplishments, to help our cherished youth and honored seniors.
