Muskego Moose Lodge to Honor Local Moose Member

Muskego, WI – The Muskego Moose Family Center is pleased to announce a celebration to honor and congratulate their newest pilgrim, Joseph Thibedeau, on Saturday October 13, 2012. Joe has earned the degree after a lifetime of dedication and service to the Moose and his community. The Pilgrim Degree of Merit is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a member of the Loyal Order of Moose. The degree was originally created in 1918 and proves to be a reward for extraordinary service to the member’s community and organization.

A brief summary of Joe’s dedication to the Moose and his community:

Joe originally joined the Moose on his 21st birthday; however, he was involved as a youth as his parents were also actively involved. Joe holds a Lifetime Membership both in the Loyal Order of the Moose and the Moose Legion. He is a member of the Moose Legion and earned the Fellowship Degree of Honor in 2005. The Pilgrim Degree of Merit was conferred upon him earlier this year in the House of God at Mooseheart.
Joe’s Moose career includes serving the fraternity at the local, state and national level. He has held various officer positions with the Muskego Moose Lodge and Moose Legion. He is a Past Governor of the Muskego Moose Lodge and serves the Wisconsin Moose Legion #31 as an Assistant Secretary.
Outside of his Moose life, Joe has for the past 18 years served as a board member of the Muskego Athletic Association which is an organization that provides summer recreational softball and baseball programs for over 900 plus youths in the Muskego Norway School District. He has also for the past 15 years been a member of Muskego Festival which is a nonprofit group that organizes and runs the annual Muskego Fest for the City of Muskego.
When asked for his thoughts on receiving the Pilgrim Degree of Merit, Joe humbly responded “It is an honor to be recognized for something you enjoy and believe in, which is helping those in need and giving back to your community”. A famous Moose quote that sticks with Joe is “a burden to one is borne lightly by many”.
About the Moose Organization:

Moose International, headquartered at Mooseheart, Illinois, is a fraternal and service organization founded in 1888, comprising nearly 1 million men in the Loyal Order of Moose and nearly 500,000 members of the Women of the Moose, in more than 1,800 Lodges and 1,600 Chapters throughout the U.S., Canada, Great Britain and Bermuda.

The Moose organization founded and continues to support Mooseheart Child City & School, a 1,000-acre community and school for children and teens in need, located 40 miles west of Chicago; and the Moosehaven retirement community, a 65-acre campus for qualified retired members and their spouses, located near Jacksonville, Florida.
