peter_h_2009_2010_lodge_chiefIn an impressive fashion 2010 became the third year in a row that T'Kope Kwiskwis is a Quality Lodge. Congratulations to our chapter and lodge leadership who tirelessly gave cheerful service and guided us this entire year.

This third award in a row is unprecedented in Lodge history and is extremely difficult to achieve given the requirements require positive growth every single year and a 30% brotherhood conversion rate.

Quality program = Quality Lodge

 

The youth officers in the past several years have developed and committed themselves to building the lodge program. These new programs can be felt in all aspects of the lodge organization from the new award winning website, cost saving web based communications, convenient online registration to service projects such as the Camp Pigott BBQ shelter and Camp Parsons program shelters. From a revitalized and nationally recognized ceremonial program to monumental projects such as the Longhouse and ArrowCorps502 the lodge can not help but attract quality members. THAT'S YOU! So thank you to all who are members and contribute to the Lodge to Scouting and our community.

It is interesting to note that in 2006 T'Kope Kwiskwis had less than 600 dues paying members in only four years we have 900. ONE THOUSAND is the next miles stone!

Congratulations again to you, the members of T'Kope Kwiskwis, a Quality Lodge for 2010!
