The Havelock Moose Family Center enrolled five new members during a special ceremony on Sunday, and they got to see first hand the good the club does in the community.

The center made a variety of donations to area groups on Sunday and welcomed James F. Henderson, supreme governor of Moose International, during Sunday’s special ceremony.

Henderson, who holds the highest elected position in the international fraternal organization, was also the beneficiary of the local group, which made a donation of nearly $400 to the Moose International endowment.

"It’s outstanding the things that you do here," he told members of the local organization. "We want this lodge to be the heart of the community, and you are."

During the event, the Moose center made donations of Tommy Moose animals to the Havelock police and fire departments, Craven County Sheriff’s Office and Township Six Volunteer Fire Department. The animals are used to help comfort children during times of crisis and trauma.

Local chapter members also made a food donation to the Havelock-Cherry Point Ministerial Association food pantry. The food was collected as part of the lodge’s weekly Wednesday night bingo games, which are open to the public.

The chapter also supported local Relay for Life efforts with a $300 donation.
