Summit Chapter Activities

Summit chapter activities, for Modern Woodmen members ages 55 plus, reflect today's active lifestyles. These activities include:

  • Community Days - social activities that feature an easy-to-do service component. One Community Day each year involves an intergenerational activity with young family members or a Modern Woodmen youth service club.
  • Volunteer Activities - a National Day of Service activity or Matching Fund community fundraiser event.
  • Educational Events - presentations on topics like Medicare and Social Security, long-term care and estate planning are made by Modern Woodmen financial representatives and other qualified speakers.
  • Hometown Hero - programs honoring local individuals who have exhibited heroism or delivered extraordinary community service.

Summit chapters that meet specific requirements and achieve platinum status receive a special stipend, which may be used to hold special events, such as a bus trip or picnic. The stipend may also be donated to a community need or a local nonprofit organization.

The Summit Chapter Celebration is a periodic, nationwide event open exclusively to Summit chapter members. In 2011, members cruised to Cozumel, Mexico. The 2012 destination was Colonial Williamsburg, Va. In 2014, members cruised to the Bahamas aboard the Enchantment of the Seas. The 2015 Summit Celebration trip is Sept. 17-20 in Branson, Mo.
