LEC Meeting on Sunday, January 25
Our new chief, Brandon Brewer has called a Lodge Executive Committee meeting for this Sunday, January 25 at the Council Office. Adult meeting with the Chief at 1:00 PM and Youth Officers and their Associate Advisers at 2:00 PM. This will be a planning meeting to finalize the Lodge Calendar and Ordeal dates. You will get to meet our new Professional Adviser, Stephen Pousson. Youth and Adults, that want to serve their lodge, now is the time to step up. We are always looking for additional Arrowmen to help out our committees, so pick one that interests you. We look forward to seeing you there.
It's time to move forward with sharing our lodge's history with the rest of the country as we move towards celebrating the Order of the Arrow's 100th Anniversary.
Our next step is to ponder the legacy our lodge has left in the Order's first 100 years serving our council and the legacy our lodge wants to make in a new century of service. At the last NOAC, each lodge was given a Centennial crate to assist our lodge in celebrating the 100th anniversary of the OA. In 2013, our lodge's charge was to take the lid to this crate and paint it on one side to reflect our lodge's legacy. We should consider incorporating the design for our 100th anniversary NOAC 2015 contingent flap into the lid design.
Our lid will go with us to NOAC this summer. If you want to assist our chief Brandon Brewer on the lid and contingent flap design, please contact him and join in the fun.
