Blue Angels

THE BLUE ANGEL PROGRAM

At the 79th Supreme Scratch, the Great Blue Louse invited the Lady Bugs to join his Blue Louse Guard. Some of joined and we hope all or more will join us. I feel that the Blue Guard is not proper for our ladies. I started the Blue Angels to the house of the Great Blue Louse.

All the funds raised from the program will be set aside to a Special Fund to support the Cootie Courier, which is one of the Supreme’s largest budget items. As everyone knows, every year we struggle to try to keep it going, but it gets harder and harder each year. You have come to our help throughout the years and I, for one, appreciate what you have all done in the past to help.  What you have all done in the past to help.

The Blue Angel Program Works as Follows:
• Step 1: To become a Blue Angel any lady may join at this step and must serve one (1) year. You must pay a $5.00 entry fee plus $1.00 annual dues. You may wear a blue star (“reaching for the Stars). The pin is $2.50.

• Step 2: You must pay $10.00 plus $1.00 dues. You will then earn your wings. You must have served one year as a blue star. The pin is $2.50.

• Step 3: You must pay $15.00 plus $1.00 dues. You will then earn your own cloud. You must have served one year as blue star. The pin is $2.50.

• Step 4: You pay $20.00 plus $1.00 dues. You will then earn your halo. You must have served one year each as a blue star with wings and with your own cloud. The pin is $2.50.

• Step 5 and 6 are reserved future Ladies-in-Waiting and Ladies of the Court. Going, but it gets harder and harder each year. You have come to our help throughout the years and I, for one, appreciate what you have all done in the past to help.

MOC Hospitalier Knights

 

MOC HOSPITALIER KNIGHTS PROGRAM

Knights1

The MOC has issued a special medal as a fund raiser for the organization. During the Crusades the first knights to enter the Holy Lands opened a hospital. They were named Hospitalier Knights. Later the Knights moved to the Island of Malta. They were than named Knights of Malta. Thus the Cross of Malta was formed by placing four lance heads together.

The Cross of Malta was adopted as the official logo of the VFW. Since the MOC is the Honor Degree of the VFW and since the MOC is the order that services the hospitals and cares for veterans and their families, it is only fitting that the medal be named “HOSPITALIER KNIGHT”. This medal comes in Bronze ($25.00), Silver ($50.00) and gold ($100.00). The application is attached with this program. Also, please remember to add $3.50 for postage and handling.
