Changes coming...

The Moose International mobile app that includes the new electronic membership card was developed to keep current with the technology trends expected by individuals who rely on their phones to conduct day-to-day business. The app allows members to access their individual Moose record, sign new members, pay dues, locate lodges, and more.

The Moose mobile app, available on the Apple Store and Google Play, may be downloaded and used with your current card. Beginning May 1, 2023, all printed membership cards will be produced with QR codes instead of a magnetic stripe. Life members and those that have paid dues years in advance will continue to use their current cards and will not be issued new cards, however, they are encouraged to download the new app and have access to an electronic card. The electronic card is nearly identical to the current card graphically and the expiration date is in the same location.

What does this mean for our lodge? When we move to our new location our entryway(s) will have a card swipe reader that includes the ability to scan both QR codes and magnetic stripe membership cards. You will swipe your card to open the door.

President's Message

Tom Ghio

It's been a very interesting year as your president of Sunnyvale Lodge 2049. I want to thank the board for all the guidance they gave to make the lodge a success. I saw the new plans for the new kitchen and it looks great (welcome to the 21st century). I want to thank Alan, Kathy, Kay, and of course Charlie for the pre-planning to make the Golden Spot 15 Awards Banquet such a great success.

Administrator's Message

Charlie Bell

Hello everyone.

Administrator’s Message Hello Everyone,

We need more volunteers. If you would like to help out on Friday night dinners, Sunday Jam Sessions, any lodge function or dinner dance, please contact me so I can call you or schedule you for a monthly dinner. With that said, I would like to thank all the volunteers we have now and through the years. It becomes a tiresome job to do all the time, and I really appreciate all you volunteers do for this lodge.

Charlie Bell

From the Editor

Kay Peterson

As we begin our lodge new year I would like to encourage all our members (Lodge, Legion and Chapter, Women of the Moose) to bring your membership dues up to date. You can do this quite easily by logging onto, clicking on the PAY DUES link at the top of the page, entering your member I.D. and your last name in the QuickPay Login and clicking the sign in button. This will take you to a page where you can pay your Lodge and Chapter (Women of the Moose) or Legion dues and also make a tax deductible donation to Mooseheart if you choose.

In addition, I would also encourage women lodge members to consider joining the Women of the Moose if you are not a member already. In addition to supporting the various Moose Charities Bev mentions in her article on page 5, you may also choose to advance in the Women of the Moose by participating in the College of Regents (Higher Degrees) program.

Moose Charties

February was Rocker month throughout the Moose Fraternity. If you dropped by the Sunnyvale Moose Lodge it is likely that you saw on the wall some Rocker donation cards taped up showing the names of individual donors. This fundraiser is only a small part of the ongoing commitment the Moose has made to funding Moosehaven. Moose Charities collects donations from members all year long to help fund Moosehaven as well as Mooseheart. While you read this short description of Moosehaven, please consider going onto and following the link to Moose Charities to sign up for ongoing donations to Moosehaven.

Moosehaven is a private membership retirement community located on the banks of the St Johns River, in the heart of Orange Park, Florida. With a full range of programs and services, Moosehaven provides seniors 65 and older a comfortable and secure retirement option. Residents enjoy the benefits of social interaction and support services within a residential community that has served members of The Moose since 1922.

Youth Awareness

Moose Youth Awareness

One of the scholarship entrants who were sponsored by the Sunnyvale Moose Lodge is currently competing in St. Louis, Ohio for scholarships up to $12,000 at the Moose International Youth Awareness Congress. Zuleyka Alvarez is a high school junior at Fremont High School in Sunnyvale. Last fall, Zuleyka presented three motivational Kids Talks to groups of children and submitted written reports on each talk. The topic that she chose to speak on was Stranger Danger and staying safe.

At the May 29 Memorial Day BBQ, you will meet Zuleyka and she will be awarded $500 from the California Moose Riders, a $50 Visa card from District 10’s Council of Higher Degrees, and possibly a scholarship from Moose International. High school students are eligible to compete from 9th to 12th to grade.

The 2023-2024 Youth Awareness will begin in August, 2023. Informational meeting dates for the next school year will be announced in Sunnyvale’s July/August newsletter. Please pass this information on to high school students that you know. This is an amazing opportunity for students who are interested in earning scholarships for a college or trade school.
