potlatch-trophyweb2Created by the lodge in December of 1959, the Potlatch Award is given to the chapter with the highest percentage of members who attend the annual recognition banquet. Originally it was given out for attendance at the annual Potlatch, now the spring fellowship.


The trophy itself is carved in solid Argillite quarried from Haida Gwaii. The inlayed wood base bears the names of the chapters who have won the contest since the spring of 1960. Lost for almost an entire decade it was rediscovered and given out in its current form, at the banquet, since 1993.
