Former Claremont Moose Lodge seeking to reopen as Eagles aerie
The former Moose Club members are now members of the Fraternal Order of the Eagles, but still need 21 more men and 13 more women to form an Aerie in Claremont.
At least one hundred members, 50 men and 50 women, are needed to start, Bowie said Wednesday.
The Claremont Moose lodge had a dispute with Moose International over about $30,000 in past due liability insurance payments to Moose International, Bowie said.
At the time T. Michael Leuer, general counsel for Moose International, Inc. said, would only confirm that the Moose charter for the Claremont, NH Lodge 1201 had been revoked on May 29, based upon the Lodge’s intentional failure to comply with Moose International general laws.
They are starting smaller, but members of the recently closed Canaan Eagles Club have expressed an interest in joining the Claremont Aerie, he said.
An upside for women members, Bowie said, is that women are allowed to be full voting members in the Eagles club or auxiliary members only if they choose. Moose women could only be members of the auxiliary club and are not allowed to vote, he said.
