Downers Grove Lodge 1535 Board of officers

Moose Cruise Night’s will be back again this year starting May 26th, 2023, to September 1st, 2023. We are having a planning meeting on February 19th before the Daytona 500 at 12:00 in the Lodge, all are invited. There will be trophies this year for best in show on select nights.

Thanks to all the volunteers and all the participants in 2022 for a great year of cool cars and great people. We raised about $4000.00 last year for local not-for-profit groups and Mooseheart. Sponsorship opportunities available.

The Loyal Order of Moose is a fraternal and service organization founded in 1888. With nearly one million members in roughly 1,600 Lodges in 49 states and four Canadian provinces, plus Great Britain. Along with other units of Moose International, the Loyal Order of Moose supports the operation of Mooseheart Child City & School, a 1,000-acre community for children and teens in need, located 40 miles west of Chicago; and Moosehaven, a 70-acre retirement community for its members near Jacksonville, FL. Additionally, members of the Moose conduct approximately $70 million worth of community service (counting monetary donations and volunteer hours worked) annually. The Loyal Order of Moose organizes and participates in numerous sports and recreational programs, in local Lodges and Family Centers in the majority of 44 State and Provincial Associations, and on a fraternity-wide basis.  Lodges across the Fraternity are known for creating life-long bonds between members through activities and a shared concern for children in need, seniors and the communities in which they live.
