Brothers, have you ever thought about becoming a lodge officer? Do you want to get more involved in the lodge and serve your brothers in the order? Well now is your chance! At the Spring Fellowship we will be electing a new slate of Lodge Officers. The positions available are: Lodge Chief, Lodge Secretary, Vice-Chief of Service, Vice-Chief of Inductions, Treasurer, and Vice-Chief of Activities. These are all very important positions that are open to all youth in the lodge. Being a lodge officer is a great experience that will let you grow as a leader and have fun doing it. The lodge officers attended 2 meetings a month other than events which are the Lodge Officer Meeting (first Wednesday of every month September-May), and the Lodge Executive Comity meeting (third Wednesday of every month September-May). If servant leadership is your thing than these position are for you! If you want to run for Lodge Chief there is only one requirement, you must come prepared to the fellowship with a plan book of your intentions for the coming year. We hope to see you all there!

cwhaleOn the weekend of April 26th through the 28th 352 arrowmen gathered at Camp Pigott for this year Section W1-N Conclave. Conclave is yearly events were we celebrate the accomplishments of the last year, and plan for the new one. It provides a place for arrowmen to gather, learn, and have fun all in the same weekend. At Conclave we had huge accomplishments, from ceremonies, to section elections, to having a huge Brotherhood Ceremony. This year the Council of Chiefs made it a goal to conduct a Brotherhood Ceremony at conclave for all the lodges in the section correctly. Saturday morning 29 members of the section sealed their bond by going through the Brotherhood Ceremony (23 of them are members of T’Kope). Also the section conducted its elections for the 2013 officers. Section Chief, Chris Zantek, was re-elected to continue to lead the section in outstanding cheerful service. Nathan Lee was also elected to fill the role of Section Vice Chief. Congratulations to both of you on your accomplishments and thank you for your service.  From the Ceremonies side of things T’Kope ceremonialists received honors for their Pro-Ordeal and Vigil Ceremonies. It was an amazing weekend of fellowship and fun, Learning and growth. The only thing to say about it is that is it a great day to be T’Kope Kwiskwis! Hope to see you all there next year! Date and Location will be anounced in the comming months.

Brothers, every year each chapter sends one representative to the Vigil Selection Committee meeting held at the Scout Office in mid-May. The representatives go over every member of the lodge that is eligible for the Vigil honor. The committee is made up of young men that know many members of the lodge, so that they can make informed decisions in selecting the Vigil Class. This year the Vigil Selection committee will be meeting Saturday May 11th to select the members of the lodge that will be receiving the Vigil honor.  If you wish to write a letter to nominate eligible members of the lodge we need them ASAP. We will accept them as late as Thursday May 9, 2013. You can email you letter to the selection comity, and each letter will be read and discussed.
