The weekend of May 18-20 we will be having our Spring Ordeal at Camp Ho Non Wah. Check-in for the function will be from 5:00-7:30 pm.  Help set the example for our OA candidates and be in Full Field Uniform (Class A and Sash) for Check-in.  We have a lot to do to prepare for the upcoming summer camp season. Some of the service projects that we will be doing are setting up cots and tents in the campsites for summer camp, blow debris off roofs in campsites, pressure wash all buildings, replace rotten poles in parking lot, clean ditches, weed eat campsites, along with a few more projects. So, if you are able, please bring gas powered blowers, ladders, pressure washers, gas powered weed eaters, and any other tools to help with projects at the Ordeal.  Also be sure to pack work clothes, work gloves and a water bottle.  It will be a busy day so everyone needs to stay hydrated.

If you require any medical accommodations please note them on the back of the registration form. If there are brothers that did not receive this letter or registration form please direct them to to get them from there to attend the function. Please spread the word because this Ordeal is essential to hosting an outstanding summer camp.

**This is the last letter that will go out to 2017 Dues paid members, so make sure you pay your dues for 2018. Your dues status is on the address label of the envelope and you can always ask at the function or email**

Looking toward the summer camp season, plan to come out and join us on Thursday nights for OA Night/Parents Night at summer camp.  The dates are June 14, 21, 28 and July 12.

On Sunday we will be installing our new Lodge officers:

Lodge Chief: Colin Reiheld

Vice Chief of Admin: Christian Huggins

Vice Chief of Program: Mason Suggs

Secretary: Nick Spaulding

Treasurer: Christian Blackburn


I know that we are all looking forward to what these outstanding young men can accomplish this upcoming year.


I would like to give all of you a special thanks for all of the hard work that you have put in this past year, and I feel that we really have accomplished something as a Lodge as we continue to grow our program and continue through our 75th Anniversary Year. We have come far, but this is only the beginning of the next chapter of our great lodge.


Yours in Brotherhood,
