The Moose Lodge in Proctor celebrated its 100th anniversary on Saturday.

The Moose Fraternity started in Proctor in 1914. The fraternity's focus is on serving disadvantaged children and seniors. They have a home for children near Chicago and a home for seniors in Florida.

Dan Streu has been governor three times. He said the anniversary means a lot to him because of the hardships the lodge has overcome.

"Back in about '75 or so they built this building," he said, standing in the Proctor Moose Lodge. "Then in about '91 or '92 we had a devastating fire. And we came back from that, made it better ... and attracted more members. So to me, it means succeeding."
