WOTM, Mooseheart celebrating 100th anniversaries at local lodge

The Women of the Moose and the Mooseheart Child City and School will be celebrating their 100th year anniversaries during the local Moose Lodge's annual summer party Saturday, Aug. 10.

The Women of the Moose, founded in 1913, has more than 400,000 women in approximately 1,600 chapters in all 50 states and four Canadian provinces.

Mooseheart is a residential childcare facility, located on a 1,000-acre campus 38 miles west of Chicago. The Child City is a home for children and teens in need, from infancy through high school.

The annual summer party starts at noon with children's activities including face painting, a bouncy house and a scavenger hunt.

Adult activities start with a horseshoe tournament at 2 p.m. and a cornhole tournament imm- ediately following (corn hole sign-ups will start at 4:30 p.m.).

Entertainment for the afternoon will be provided by Bill Skidmore, a Moose Lodge member.

Hamburgers, hotdogs and pulled pork sandwiches along with potato chips will be available starting at 12:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m.

Starting at 4 p.m., a full all-you-can-eat pulled pork dinner will be available that includes potato salad and baked beans for a reasonable fee.

The band Rock of Elders, which includes Alan McCurdy, will provide the entertainment from 6 to 10 p.m.

Continuous activities throughout the day will include a raffle for a 32" LED TV, a 100th year commemorative registered Women of the Moose basket along with multiple 50/50 drawings.

A portion of the proceeds collected from the day's raffles will be donated to the recovery fund for Sidney Good and Alexis Fairchild, who had been critically injured in a parasailing accident last month in Florida.

This all day event is open to the public.
