Wauna La-Mon’tay Rendezvous Recap

Wauna La-Mon’tay lodge concluded their annual fellowship, rendezvous, Sunday morning. The event, held at Camp Meriwether, was full of sunshine, fun activities, fellowship, and great food.

The weekend started with a fun night of fellowship as well as the lodge museum! Saturday morning started with breakout sessions featuring lodge leadership development training as well as some other classes. The youth elected Trevor Horine as their new lodge chief for the 2019-2020 lodge program year. After lunch, Arrowmen had the opportunity to participate in a variety of fun activities such as rock climbing, tomahawk throwing, an escape room, and more. They also elected their new lodge vice-chiefs. The evening finished with a banquet, featuring the presentation of the Leadership in Service awards, Founders’ awards, James E. West recipients, and the vigil callout.

Arrowmen said farewell on Sunday morning, a sunny, but still very cold morning. Wauna La-Mon’tay’s next event is the Meriwether induction where they plan to welcome many new Arrowmen!

Tsisqan Lodge Officer Retreat

Over the weekend of November 9-11, the newly elected Tsisqan Lodge officers met for a weekend of training and planning. The officers were able to guide much of the weekend, beginning with discussing what traditions the lodge has, what they would like to keep, and if there were any that could be improved. This set the stage for the rest of the weekend training sessions.

These training sessions included clarifying the responsibilities each lodge officer has in their individual roles and as members of the Lodge
Executive Board. Officers took breakout sessions with their advisers to discuss the plans they have for the upcoming year before reconvening to share with their fellow officers.

 

One of the topics that was covered was Tsisqan’s upcoming 75th anniversary in 2019 and how each officer can support that. This includes the anniversary banquet event on March 22nd-24th and how the theme of the anniversary, “Many Fires, One Light” can be featured in all lodge events for the year. Throughout the weekend, each officer showed an enthusiasm for the upcoming tasks and how they can lead the way in brotherhood, cheerfulness, and service.

They now are preparing to lead similar trainings for the chapter officers in December.
