To encourage positive family life and community spirit among members, chapters plan and help pay for a variety of social activities. Here are some of the most popular:
Picnics and potluck dinners
The entire family enjoys these opportunities for food, games, fellowship and volunteer activities with other members.
Member appreciation nights
Chapter leaders thank members by honoring them with 25- and 50-year membership pins and 100 percent Modern Woodmen family certificates.
Members often plan their best party of the year during the holiday season. Chapters join together to enjoy a traditional holiday meal, entertainment and each other’s company. After dinner, attendees often go caroling at a local nursing home.
Once a year, chapters can join together to attend sporting events, theater productions, skating rinks or other places of interest.
Summit Chapter Celebration
Summit Chapter members may participate in the annual Summit Chapter Celebration, held in various locations. In 2011, members cruised to Cozumel, Mexico. The 2012 destination was Colonial Williamsburg, Va.
Chapter members enjoy this opportunity to take a trip to their local movie theater together.
