Moose International Ladies Circles

A Short History

The odd sounding name stems from America in 1888, when a Dr Wilson, studied moose & admired the way it protected the young & old of its kind. He founded a society that he called The Loyal Order of Moose, now called Moose International; the fraternity currently operates in America, Canada, Bermuda & the United Kingdom.

British Moose was established in 1926, the emphasis was to build upon membership & establish lodges. As a consequence, ladies of the Moose in Great Britain did not really get involved until 1929/30 when small support groups worked within lodges, to provide meals at lodge meetings & support their husbands & so gradually involving themselves in small fundraising activities.

The Grand Council at that time, like James J Davis, realised the potential of ladies working in harmony with the lodges. Accordingly, Ladies’ Circles were established in 1933 & as the years progressed a Constitution was introduced into circle rules.
