WSNIMA Mourns the Loss of our Friend and Brother, Paul W. Curtis

Brother Paul W. Curtis passed away suddenly on April 13, 2022.  He served WSNIMA as a leader in several capacities over his 37 years of service to the Moose. He was Fundraising Chair for over a decade which saw us raise over $500,000 in total for the WSNIMA Home at Mooseheart, the Life Care Center at Moosehaven, Mooseheart People Movers, and large vans to transport our senior members at Moosehaven.  Paul became a Past President of WSNIMA in 2003.  He joined Camas Washougal Lodge #1042 in 1985, and served in all chairs including Past Governor.  He was a Past President of Western Washington Moose Legion #17 and served on the International Moose Legion Board of Directors, culminating in his service as International Moose Legion President in 2011-2012.

After years of service on the Supreme Council/Moose International Board of Directors, Paul was elected Chairman of the Board in Cincinnati, Ohio in July of 2021.  He served our Fraternity with dignity as the highest elected official as he travelled the country visiting lodges.  He exemplified what it meant to be a Moose and brought energy and wisdom to our members as he travelled.

Most importantly, Paul was a friend and mentor to everyone he met.  All of us learned how to be a Moose, just by watching him.  While we will miss him dearly, our thoughts turn to his wife Bonnie and their children and family.  We all stand with them, ready to assist in any way that we can.  We are their Moose family.

A celebration of Paul's life will be held at the East Portland Moose Lodge 1891 on Saturday, May 28th 2022 at 1:00 pm.

You Are Moving Our WSNIMA Moose Charities Projects Closer to Completion

Every member of WSNIMA should be proud of their giving spirit.  We are currently raising $40,000.00 to help build the Mooseheart Activity Center (MAC).  You can do a virtual fly-through of the project on YouTube here.  We have currently raised over $31,000.00 for the MAC.  If you would like to learn more about and/or make a donation to the project, you can do so here.  Click on the "Donate Today to the MAC Project" button on the page.  Make sure to write "Please credit to the WSNIMA MAC project" in the special instruction box so it will go toward our project total and also be credited to you individually.

We are also raising $20,000.00 to bring the WSNIMA Girls back to Washington/Idaho as soon as we have completed the campaign and it is safe for them to travel without restrictions.  We have raised over $16,800.00 to make this happen.  If you'd like to donate to this project, you can do so at our conventions and conferences, or by mailing a check to Moose Charities.  Just be sure to put "WSNIMA Girls Trip" in the memo blank of the check, and send it to:

Moose Charites
155 S. International Dr.
Mooseheart, IL 60539

We keep running totals of both of these projects on our Moose Charities Page.  Thank you for your generosity and for caring about our kids and seniors.

YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Each and every time you pay your dues, donate directly to, or raise money for Moose Charities, you make it possible to take care of these kids that live in the house with our name.  On behalf of a grateful fraternity and association, thanks for being a member and giving of your time and substance so these children have a great quality of life, an education, and most importantly, a bright future.  You make a difference.  Never forget that.
