My Brothers:

There are only a few days left to register for the Indian Affairs Weekend. The deadline is March 5, 2017, this coming Sunday/ This is your chapters chance to help improve your ceremonies team and provide an opportunity for your members who provide service to Blue and Gold Dinners for Cub scouts and Webelos scouts to have regalia of their own. With this regalia they can also compete in Indian dancing at the Pow Wow. This can help your chapter win chapter of the weekend. It’s also nice when you have regalia that fits you. Adrian and Mr. Geukens are trying to improve the Indian image of the lodge and Order of the Arrow in Orange County. Don’t miss this opportunity.
