We're back with the most exciting Chatter yet!

From The Chief

2017 has been another great year for the Tahosa Lodge. This year we elected more new candidates and had incredible ordeal participation. Our ordeal to brotherhood conversation was rather low this year and needs some improvement for next year. We also welcomed 8 new vigil members this year. Service is at the heart of what we do in the OA and this year we continued our long tradition of service to the Peaceful Vally Scout Ranch and Camp Tahosa. Our inaugural Cub-o-ree was a huge success. We look forward to holding annual Cub-o-Rees for the foreseeable future. Overall 2017 has been another great year for the OA and this lodge. As we look to 2018 we get excited about a return to Indiana University for the 2018 National Order of the Arrow Conference. 

As my time as Lodge Chief comes to a close, I want to thank all those who have helped me do all the great things we have done this year. The lodge is in capable hands with Phillip.


Yours in Service, 

 Rudy Reynolds 

 2017 Lodge Chief 


From The Advisor

What a 2017! Arrowhead Trail, gaga pits, and Cub-O-Ree, oh my! Your service to our council and community produced over 13,000 service hours, smashing 2016's mark of over 11,000 hours. Our chapters tried out new and innovative events this year and our lodge was truly a leadership example for how to create a council event from thin air. Chief Rudy and his Lodge Executive Committee have shown that Tahosa Lodge truly is a brotherhood of cheerful service for Denver!

As many of you know I am stepping down from Lodge Advisor at the close of our 2018 Lodge Banquet. The 2018 Lodge Advisor will be long-time Running Antelope Chapter Advisor Bill Reynolds. He will do a great job to support the 2018 Lodge Chief Phillip Alvarez as they take the lodge forward to the 2018 NOAC and beyond. It has been a privilege and an honor for me to be a small part of Tahosa's history of achievement.

To all my brothers (and sisters) in Tahosa, you worked hard and had fun doing it. Thank you! 

In Cheerful Brotherhood,

 Bob Crume

From The 2018 Chief

Hello all,

I am incredibly excited to transition into the new year as the 2018 Tahosa Lodge Chief. This past year has been full of new events, activities, and a shared vision. Cub-O-Ree is an example of one of these events where we had many volunteers come together and put on a wonderful program. We are already planning for next year and it should be an even better event. Let’s start off the new year strong with the Lodge Banquet! So, don’t forget to sign up below. Be there for the unveiling of the 2018 goals, recognition for service, and of course: food and fellowship!


Yours truly,

 Phillip Alvarez

2019 World Jamboree

The World Jamboree takes scouting to a whole new level. The 24th World Scout Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel Scout Reserve will attract 50,000 scouts from 169 different countries. The atmosphere is magical like you’ll never believe. Picture all the fun of a National Jamboree, all the high adventure of the Summit, and add the excitement of people from across Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and the Americas mixing together, many of them getting their first peek of life outside of their own country. It’s electrifying.

Applications for scouts, adults and staff members are now open. You can learn more about the Jamboree at wsj2019.us.
