Chiefly Speaking - May 2017



Being the Best All- Around Lodge is something that we should feel very proud of. All year long, our leadership has worked extremely hard to improve this Lodge, but we never would have achieved this goal if we didn’t have such a fantastic, committed, cheerful, and willing lodge behind us. I would like to thank every member of the O-Shot-Caw lodge who attended an Order of the Arrow event this year; YOU are the reason our lodge has prospered in the past 12 months!


It has been an incredible pleasure and honor to serve this mighty lodge as its Chief. Once again, I’m very grateful for the efforts of this Lodge which allowed us to have such a productive year fulfilling the purpose of our Order.


Can’t wait to see everyone at the Summer Ordeal!


Yours in Brotherhood,

Wyatt Engelmann

Lodge Chief
