Order of the Arrow, Boy Scouts of America
I imagine the majority of you are not entirely enjoying the weather we have been having lately, specifically the frigid temperatures. After reading -18° Fahrenheit on my thermometer last night, I was surprised that my eyelids were not already frozen shut.
Nonetheless, our committees are already knee deep in lodge activity for the 2015 year! I can’t begin to explain how happy I was to hear that our chairman were busy at work. The Communications committees have begun work on the Lodge website, as well as work on a spring edition of Smoke Signals. The Unit Elections committee has been working for over a month now on holding elections. The NAA committee has already drummed at FIVE blue and gold dinners. The ceremonies committee has even began to practice scripts TWO MONTHS before the fellowship weekend in April. Congrats and thank you to all that have been active this early in the game, mentioned and un-mentioned.
I’d like you all to try and follow the example of these committees, and get active this time of year. If the committee you are involved with has yet to begin work on their specified duties, try to incorporate some kind of prep work at committee meetings. If you are interested in helping out any of our committees, I’m positive that all committees will be more than willing to have you as a part of their team. With this in mind, I hope you are all ready for a truly awesome year in Lowwapaneu Lodge!
I just want to remind everyone about the great opportunities the Order of the Arrow has available to you.
We are having our Lodge picnic on July 18th at McDade Park and we are looking for help to assist at a car show in Forty Fort on July 19th.
The first week in August 47 members of the Lodge will be traveling to Michigan State University to attend NOAC during the 100th anniversary of our great order.
Then there’s the Acahela Ordeal, followed by the Harvest Fest weekend.
You don’t have to look far to see that the Lodge is always on the go.
Hope to see you at one of our events.
