Pittston Lodge 1207 held a benefit on 2/25 for Elyssa Yanik, a sixteen year old Wyoming Area High School sophomore. She was diagnosed in 2008 with a rare form of thyroid cancer with lymph node metastasis which is aggressive in children. Over the past three and a half years, Elyssa endured ongoing testing and treatments at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Her treatment included three extensive surgeries and radiation therapy to manage the cancer. Elyssa's most recent surgery occurred in January 2012, and she continues to be treated on an ongoing basis under the watchful eyes of her doctors in Philadelphia. Elyssa tries to remain active with her love of dance and school functions amidst her physical challenges. The funds raised will help Elyssa and her family pay for their medical expenses, travel expenses, lodging, etc.

Port Allegany Moose F.C. #460 held a dedication of the Flag Memorial, at the Moose Park, Rte 155 South, on July 30, 2011. The Monument will honor the retirement and disposal of American Flags. This memorial can by used by the Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts, American Legions, VFW and other organizations that wish to have a ceremony to properly dispose of American Flags.








Tommy Moose from Bedford #480 has been very busy spreading cheer and good will so far this holiday season. It started with the Children's Christmas party at the Lodge helping Santa Clause distribute gifts, then on to the Shawnee Valley Ambulance Service to help distribute Tommy Moose's, and in down town Bedford for a Town Christmas Celebration, again with Santa. He also has more events scheduled so we will try to keep up with him so we can keep everyone posted as to his whereabouts. Go Tommy! Make the PMA proud!






Elkland Moose FC 746 had 358 visitors attend the Cub Scout spook house held at the Lodge. Candy was handed to all trick or treat. The Cub Scouts and pack leaders did an excellent job of scaring all the visitors. I was very impressed how it was set up. It even scared me! (Click the picture to see more photos from the event)

Bedford Family Center #480 delivers another load of Tommy Moose's to the Emergency Room at the Bedford Memorial Hospital. What made this delivery more entertaining and exciting as usual to the staff is that the "Real Tommy Moose" helped with the delivery. The Emergency Room staff really like having the Tommy Moose's around to help calm the small children that come in.

North Hills Lodge 46 held a Car Cruise on Labor Day weekend. As District 12 President I thought it would be a great idea to support an event held by one of our lodges. My wife and I had a great time and want to thank the lodge for all their hard work. Click on the photo to go to the Photo Gallery to see more pictures of the Car Cruise.

Thank you

District 12 President

Last evening I had the pleasure to attend the "Preferred Members" Dinner at Steelton # 382. I had been invited by the Board of Officers to speak on membership production and retention. I estimate 50 members were in attendance , ( somewhat short of their goal ) but a huge success and many happy members in attendance. I spoke with every member one on one and they all said they hope that the lodge continues to do things like this because they enjoyed it so much. The food was outstanding, with stuffed chicken breast , roast beef, crab legs, giant shrimp and all of the other goodies. I couldn't eat dessert I was so full. Karaoke/ DJ was the entertainment and that was fun (Larry Keefe needs to let his wife be the singer in the family)and should stick to being Governor, but that was part of the fun and fellowship we all shared. I wanted to let everyone know of this on behalf of the Steelton group because I saw a tremendous amount of effort put into this dinner so everyone could feel fraternal and be proud to sponsor members. WAY TO GO #382 and where are my leftovers you promised?

Fraternally,
Michael Henry
D5 President
