Kanwa tho Lodge COVID-19 Updates

 

 

Lodge Updates

 

Lodge Events

Following the guidelines from Three Harbors Council, the Boy Scouts of America and state and federal guidelines, all in-person Scouting events are canceled until at least May 18, 2020.
 
This means that the Spring Fix-it and Spring Fellowship have been canceled.
 
We are working to plan other dates in the late summer or fall so that there are still two opportunities for Ordeal and Brotherhood candidates to complete their inductions, and so that our camps get the needed service we provide. Please stay tuned to this website and our social media (above) for updates on new event dates.
 

Lodge Dues

Kanwa tho Lodge has extended the early bird fee for dues for the rest of the year. This means that a single dues membership will be $15.00 throughout the year, instead of $20.00. *Note, if you are one of the few people who paid the full fee before the decision was made, please contact Lodge Adviser Ken Walton if you would like your $5 refunded.
 
 

National Updates

 

National, Regional, and Section Events

All national, regional, and section events through May 2, 2020 are postponed. Specifically in our area, the Section C-7 Conclave in April is canceled and spring NLS/DYLCs were canceled. Currently, NOAC and all other OA High Adventure is still on.
 

Elections

In light of the pandemic, the national Order of the Arrow committee has announced that all Scouts chosen in elections held from February 1, 2020 through July 1, 2020 will be allowed 24 months to complete their Ordeals, instead of the normal 12 months.
 
The national committee has also written and approved guidelines for holding virtual elections during this time. Please pay attention to your email for information from your respective chapters regarding hosting unit elections virtually.
