Moose bestows highest honor on local member
John Burr Jr. of Newton, a member of Newton Lodge No. 923, Loyal Order of Moose, has been summoned to receive the Pilgrim Degree of Merit, the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a member of the Loyal Order of Moose.
The degree — currently held by less than one-half of one percent of the members of the fraternity throughout the United States, Canada, Great Britain and Bermuda — is the order’s ultimate reward for exceptional devotion to the principles and ideals of caring for children and senior members and is earned only by members who have given years of “above-the-call-of-duty” service to the Loyal Order of Moose and its principle philanthropic endeavors of Mooseheart, a city for children in need, located 40 miles west of Chicago, and Moosehaven, a retirement community for senior members, located on the banks of the St. Johns River in Orange Park, Fla.
The Pilgrim Degree ceremony, traditionally held on the same day as the commencement exercises for Mooseheart High School, is conferred only inside Mooseheart’s House of God, the multi-denominational cathedral built in 1950.
