Hello my fellow Arrowmen,
It comes with great pleasure to be able to address you as your Section’s Chief. This has been an action packed year for all of us. Serving our home Chapters and Lodges working to improve ourselves as Arrowmen and as people of our communities. We all do tremendous work to improve our organization as a whole. By raising our membership numbers, creating a better environment with activities, scout skills, leadership and service opportunities. This will encourage Arrowmen to return to our Brotherhood not just see it improve but to also improve ourselves.
I am a Wiatava Lodge member, it has been my Order of the Arrow home. However, as I grew with this organization I have made many brothers from all different Lodges, even beyond our Sections and across the Nation. For this I can say happily that it doesn’t matter if it is Ordeal, Brotherhood Gatherings, Fall Fellowship, or just a day fishing or camping, any brother of mine is welcome to join to have a great time.
As Chief, I would like to invite all of you to our upcoming Conclave. It will be held October 9th – 11th at the Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center. This years Conclave will cost $45.00 per Arrowmen, this conference fee will only be available until Friday, September 25th. After that point the conference fee will jump up to $50.00 per Arrowmen. Please join us at the Outdoor Education Center, for a weekend full of classes, shows, spirit and competitions including sports, American Indian Affairs, Newsletters/Planbooks, and Camping Promotions!
There is no better way to finish off this centennial than a great gathering of all our Lodges, so make sure to register early and not to miss out on this wonderful experience!
Yours in Brotherhood,
2015 W4S Section Chief
