A Message from the Scout Executive

Dear Kawida Lodge Members,
It is my pleasure to announce the appointment of Mike Warman as the new Kawida Lodge Adviser.  He will assume this position immediately.
I would also like to publicly thank Todd Haydon for his service as Kawida Lodge Adviser over the last few years.
Thanks also go out to the Lodge Adviser selection committee that I engaged at the beginning of the process: Nathan Vick, John David King, Leta Rai Davenport, and Claudette Watts. Their advice and guidance throughout this process were very valuable to me.
Thank you all very much!
Yours in Scouting,
Chip Armishaw

Scout Executive


Calling all youth brothers!

Think back to when you were first inducted into the OA. Remember that Arrowman who sought you out or the Indian that played the drum. Remember how you felt during your call out with all the Indians talking, the drum being played loudly, and the two Arrowmen running back and forth picking boys. Would you want to be one of those men?

The Vice Chief of Brotherhood is currently seeking out people for our ceremonies teams this year. If you are interested email and cc Please include Name and Honor so we can call upon you when needed!
