March was a very eventful month for our Lodge. In the first weekend of March, 20 arrowmen made their way up to Fruitland Park, FL where they attended the National Leadership Seminar and the Developing Youth Leadership Conference. Here, brothers enhanced their leadership skills and learned how to better serve the OA and their communities. On March 8-10, we held our Spring Ordeal. Here, we inducted 29 new brothers, 10 of which are our first female youth in our lodge. Congratulations to all our new brothers! On March 22-24, we held our annual Lodge Banquet where we had seminars, chapter vs. chapter games, and the awards ceremony in the evening. At the awards ceremony, we recognized many of our most deserving arrowmen. Congratulations to our newest Vigil Honor members and to all who were recognized that evening! March was a very successful and memorable month for O-Shot-Caw. We all had a great time at our events.
At the beginning of April, we were notified that we are once again recipients of the National Service Award! This is such a great accomplishment for us which we could not have done without your continuous cheerful service. Thank you all so much for your willingness to serve.
Coming up later this month, we will be going up to Section Conference in Camp Tanah Keeta. If you do not know, Section Conference is a weekend full of games, seminars, shows, and competitions with arrowmen from all over the state. For many people, including myself, it is the most fun event we go to every year. I am sure that at Section Conference, we will show, once again, who is the best Lodge in our section!
This has been such a wonderful year so far. We have done so many great things and we are continuing to do so. Let us keep up this great O-Shot-caw spirit! Thank you all once again for all your unending cheerful service!
Yours in brotherhood,
Keanu O. | Lodge Chief
