NINE O'CLOCK CEREMONY
At the hour of nine o'clock p.m., wherever Moose are gathered in the name of the Order, they are requested to stand, face toward Mooseheart, fold their arms across their chests, and for a moment bow their heads in silent prayer, repeating in concert the words of the Nine O'clock Ceremony. At a regular meeting the Governor should call for the ceremony as close to nine o'clock as possible.)
The Nine O'clock Ceremony gives members the opportunity to reflect upon the value of Mooseheart and serves as a reminder of the principles of our Order. The Nine O'clock Ceremony shall be performed, and an endowment fund collection conducted, whenever members of the Order are assembled (including meetings, the social quarters and during other social functions). Each lodge should maintain one or more appropriately marked containers in the lodge home and social quarters to collect contributions for the endowment fund.
Members are reminded they can make Endowment Fund Contributions on-line, which are credited towards your primary Lodge or Chapter's total giving for the year and also goes towards your total Donors Circle Donations.
