2017 Lodge Leadership Development and Banquet

Arrowmen, as the 2016 year comes to a close, we have some wonderful events set to kick off the 2017 year in the best way possible. We highly recommend that any arrowmen, youth or adult, sign up for both of these events. The LLD is an amazing opportunity to gain some valuable leadership skills pertinent to the OA. The banquet is also a great opportunity for anyone able to attend. We will have great food, and lots of good fellowship at both events. For more details, click here or sign up at the Council Office.
