The Hopewell Moose Lodge hosted our first ever "Kid's Karaoke Contest", on April 8th, 2017. As our Lodge continues to look for innovative ways to incorporate children and families; Dawn Ozmore,  our Jr. Graduate Regent, suggested a kid's karaoke contest. During the planning phase, we decided "why limit contestants to just the Hopewell Moose Lodge?" Since we are ALL MOOSE, regardless of our lodge affiliation, let's ask other lodges to participate! The response was amazing. Four different lodges made the trip to participate. What an amazing group of talent! These kids sung their heart out and provided an early evening of "FAMILY" entertainment. Taylor Carter, brother of one of the contestants, said, "I thought it was just a bar. I had no idea these are the types of activities that go on behind these walls." That evening he signed up to be a Moose. The lodge looks forward to hosting another such event in the fall.

Special thanks to our judges: Sheryl Taylor Ross, Ryan Jackson, Sherry Taylor & Emily Guthrie. To our lodge staff & volunteers, DJ/Karaoke host Richard Nunnally, and most importantly- to all the parents, grandparents, family & friends that made this possible.
