Since the last edition of the Patchwork, the O-Shot-Caw Lodge has been busy doing many great things. The Lodge continued our legacy at Section Conference and selected new Leadership at Summer Ordeal.
O-Shot-Caw had an incredible attendance at the 2011 Section S4 Conference held at Tanah-Keeta Scout Reservation near Jupiter, FL. This is where we made our presence known as we filled the camp with our cheers and spirit. We put all our effort into the competitions. When Sunday morning rolled around O-Shot-Caw was awarded for the second time in a row, the Best All Around Lodge trophy along with the Spirit Award. Such a finish is only fit for a great lodge. After the awards, Frank Gamez ran for Section Chief and won. Also, Alan Randall ran for Section Secretary and won. Congratulations to the two of them!
The Summer Ordeal was held at Vista View Park at the beginning of June. Our main project was to build picnic tables for the imminent opening of Camp Elmore (Seminole).
Congratulations to all new Brothers whom were inducted at this Ordeal, I'm proud of how you worked diligently to serve cheerfully. On Sunday, the Lodge chose five youth leaders to serve as the 2011-2012 Lodge Officers. They are myself as Lodge Chief, Kyle Senzig as First Vice, Ryan Rodriguez as Second Vice, Matthew Braun as Secretary, and Joseph Anderson as Treasurer.
The future brings some awesome events. The first is the LEC on August 18th, then Lodge Leadership Development, or LLD, two days later. The LLD will be held at the West Broward Masonic Lodge in Pembroke Pines on August 20th, where those seeking leadership in O-Shot-Caw Lodge can sharpen their leadership skills.
I am so proud to serve one more year as your Lodge Chief. My brothers, O-Shot-Caw has continued its legacy as the Best All-Around Lodge. We will be having a great year this year.
Yours in Brotherhood,
O-Shot-Caw Lodge Chief
