Whitefish’s Women of the Moose Awarded for Community Service

By Beacon Staff

The Whitefish chapter of the Women of the Moose was awarded a service award for putting in the most community hours two years in a row in the state of Montana. The Whitefish Women of the Moose have volunteered over 12,000 hours of community service for the last two years, according to the organization.

The award came during a recent state convention hosted by the Whitefish Loyal Order of the Moose #642 and the Whitefish Women #597.

The Whitefish chapter includes a group of women and men called the Clamity Singers who sing at nursing and assisted living homes all over the valley. They are led by Carol Lietz and Carolyn Pfrimmer. Whitefish members also help with the Retired Senior Volunteer Programs, helping in the senior centers with Meals on Wheels and senior activities. They also help with teaching cribbage in the local elementary schools. The Moose clean the highway and are involved in the many churches in Whitefish. They collect food for the food bank, help with Toys for Tots, and the Rotary. They sing and help with Bingo at the Veterans home.

The Whitefish Moose Lodge hosts “Hamburger Nite” on Monday nights and Friday nights there’s games of bingo. The Lodge and Chapter have bridge on Friday afternoon and pinochle on Monday nights.
