The Summer Ordeal is scheduled for August 8-10. This is the weekend during which all those who have been elected to become a part of our Brotherhood are inducted into our lodge. If you have already been through your Ordeal, we encourage you to come to the weekend to support the candidates, as well as spend time with your fellow brothers.
In celebration of our Lodge's 75th anniversary, Fall Felloship (September 19-21) will be one giant celebration. This weekend will consist of Shooting Sports, Open Aquatics, and lots of good food. Saturday evening, September 20, will be our feature celebration, 75 Years of Cheerful Service. This will begin with dinner at 5:30, followed by a campfire in the council ring, and concluding with a cracker barrel in the dining hall. The entire weekend is sure to be a blast, but if you wish to come just for the evening, you may do that too. The cost for the whole weekend is $20, $8 if you just go that evening.

The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is an event in which Arrowmen from all across the country gather together in fellowship. Next year, NOAC will be held on August 3-8 at Michigan State University. This NOAC will be the biggest in the Order's history, because next year is the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow. In honor of this, the National Order of the Arrow Committee has announced that anyone who attends NOAC 2015 will recieve a special edition sash that will have a white arrow on a red sash. If you would like to attend, please sign up here so we can contact you with more information. This is not a committment. You are simply putting your name on our list.

In honor of this great milestone in our history, a special version of our standard issue lodge flap has been made and is available for purchase and any lodge event. We also have new lodge t-shirts that are made especially for our 75th anniversary and can also be bought at any lodge event.
