Once again it’s time to schedule a trip to the Northwoods, to Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation during the Memorial Day weekend to help prepare our camp for the 2012 season of Scouting.
This weekend of cheerful service is not just for members of the Order of the Arrow, but for any Scout, Scouter, or friend of Scouting who would like to come. AFW chapters are also welcome to attend. We encourage Units to sign up for specific projects … call for details.
The weekend is not all work, but also FUN. You will have time to enjoy opportunities like fishing, hiking, canoeing, crafting, or sitting around a campfire with some old (and maybe new) friends. Enjoy the great Northwoods. Meals will be prepared by Chef Claudia and her terrific staff of gourmet assistants. Bring your own tent or reserve a cabin along the shore of Lake Killian.
Also, if you are an Ordeal Member, and have been so since July 2011, this is a terrific opportunity to seal your membership in the order by accepting the Brotherhood Honor. Eligible Ordeal members are welcome to the Brotherhood!
Due to the high cost of fuel, the event is FREE if you register by May 18. The brand new 2012 service shirts will be available for sale at Workers Weekend. As always, Sustaining Members are free and will receive a free t-shirt as a thank you for their financial contribution to the Lodge.
We have also setup a self service google doc for drivers to find riders and riders to find a ride. If you have an open seat or two, or need a ride use the following link https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dFh2WGZFMkF0ODJPRXRtVFpMRzNicUE6MQ if you have any issue using this system please email email@example.com..
