We're back with the most exciting Chatter yet!

From The Chief

Hello Tahosa Lodge!

This past weekend we set up a booth for the OA at the Denver Area Council Scout Show in the Denver Coliseum! If you stopped by you would’ve seen our Cuboree booth, trading post, our chapter booths, and a little bit of history about the lodge. We thank anyone who came by to visit. Scout Show was a blast! Right now, the Lodge is gearing up for our two induction weekends in May; Cony Parties one and two. For more information check tahosalodge.org.

Hope to see you there!

Tahosa Lodge Chief

From The Adviser

Spring is in full swing and it is time to prepare to welcome our new members at our induction weekends. I have fond memories of these from when I was a youth in scouting. Truth is, not much has changed in that we are doing a great deal of service work at our council camps to help prepare them for another great year of summer camp programs. The only difference between now and back then is back then, we held them in June and it didn’t snow.  Don’t we all love Colorado weather in May?

We had a fantastic time at Philmont last month at our joint section conclave. Over two hundred Arrowmen from New Mexico and Colorado met in Philmont for a fun weekend of competition, training, planning and fellowship.  Also, our section elected a new section chief, and guess what?  We know him well as one of our own. Congratulations Kyle Pearson on becoming our new Section Chief and for representing our section’s four lodges. We look forward to working with you and your team.

Our lodge will be hosting an OA Ice cream social this summer each week at our camps and I am going to be reaching out to ask for a few of you to help with these.   We are looking for friendly faces to talk about what OA is and what our lodge does. We will have handouts and banners to help promote. Please look for an email from me in the next couple of weeks with signup information.   We really need to boost our visibility at our council camps and I am requesting your help with these. They will typically be on Monday nights and we will need to cover 3 different camps on the same night.

The Arrow points the way…Always!

I remember as a Scout watching an Order of the Arrow Callout Ceremony and thinking to myself, “THIS is what Scouting is all about!!” The OA helped me see what Scouting was supposed to be. Servant Leadership, Brotherhood and cheerful service. It all made sense as soon as you put the focus on it that the Order of the Arrow does.  It  made everything I was learning and experiencing as a Scout a richer and more fulfilling experience because OA IS Scouting!
