This years fall fellowship was a great success. Friday night we opened with a Pre Ordeal ceremony to welcome the 24 candidates that showed up to complete their Ordeal. After that, we had a wonderful Cracker Barrel and a debrief for the Pre Ordeal ceremony to end the night. The following morning we started on our hours of cheerful service, many projects were completed, from the Ordeal candidates and volunteers patching and organizing canvas tents used during the summer season, to help with trail work, to fixing whole rows of benches at the OA Ceremonies ring and the deconstruction of the old platform by the Ceremonies ring. Following our Cheerful service, we had a Regalia, and Regalia crafting, presentation led by Ceremonies advisor Adam Sowers with help from Donation Linebrink. Next was the National webinar, Thrive, sat in on by some very driven Arrowmen and Lodge Chief Eli Hattersley. Followed by an open ceremonies practice at the OA ring. We were then lucky enough to welcome all 24 Candidates into our Brotherhood. Later that evening we met in the Dining Hall for our monthly LEC, where we discussed upcoming events for the Lodge and closed by handing out the 75th year anniversary Silver boarder Lodge flap (available only at this event) and ended the evening with a bonfire, cocoa, and fellowship.
