OA Fall Fellowship was this past weekend at Woodruff Scout Camp and we had a good turnout with 12 Chapter Members total in attendance.  At Fellowship we had 4 members complete their Brotherhood Trail.  Congratulations to our newest Brotherhood members!  The theme for this Fellowship was “EGWA BOTS” and the chapter worked as a team to build a robot arm that they built together while also earning their Engineering Merit Badge!  Fun, teamwork, and a bit of service to the council made a great event!

 

 

OA Trailblazer will be held on October 6-8th at Bert Adams. At this campout OA members serve as staff to help teach cub scouts. It is a great way to give back to those who are coming behind us and to serve as good role models for the younger scouts. The cost is $15 and all food is provided.  The Lodge really needs both youth & adults to step up and help staff this event.  This is a major fundraiser for the Lodge and is how we are able to continue to donate to the Atlanta Area Council’s Campership fund.

 

On October 21st we will have a Lodge Day of Service at the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. Details can be found on the Egwa Tawa Dee Website. http://www.aacegwa.org/calendar.htm

 

OA Fall Ordeal will be held November 3rd -5th at Bert Adams. This is the last weekend of the year for candidates to go through their ordeal to become a brother. We are in need of Elangomats. Please keep in mind how appreciative you were to the Elangomat that served at your ordeal and please consider helping out. If it has been at least 10 months since your ordeal you can also earn your brotherhood at the same time as serving as an Elangomat. The cost is $15 and all food is provided.  Please email info@oakennesaw.com if you are able to serve an an Elangomat.

Chapter News – June 2017

New Arrowmen!

After the two spring ordeals held at Woodruff & Bert Adams Scout camps the Kennesaw Chapter has added 47 new Arrowmen to our ranks.  Congratulations on your achievement!  We look forward to seeing you at the Chapter Meetings and future Lodge events as well.

Elangomats!

For each ordeal that the Lodge hosts, the chapters are expected to send enough current Arrowmen to serve as Elangomats to help guide your fellow scouts as they progress through the ordeal.  This is a Brotherhood of Cheerful Service and sadly our chapter is not sending enough scouts and other chapters have had to cover us for too long.  Come register for ordeals and give back to the Lodge as there were those who helped you on your path.  It is time to get some dirt on those shiny white sashes!

Fall Fellowship

New & Current Arrowmen:  The next lodge event is the Fall Fellowship September 15-17th @ Woodruff Scout Camp.  Registration deadline is September 4th Registration.  If you have not completed your Brotherhood Trail and it has been at least 10 months since your Ordeal you should be able to complete Brotherhood at this event.

July Meeting Cancelled

There will not be a July Chapter Meeting.  We will see everyone at the August 3rd Meeting.
