  • Winter Banquet 2020
    On February 1, 2020, 230 Arrowmen, families, and friends gathered near the center of the council at Wagner’s of Westlake for our annual celebration of recognition and fellowship.  The evening began with gathering at our renowned trading post and the annual silent auction before sitting down to enjoy a delicious dinner.

    The program kicked off with a presentation of a check for almost $11,500 to Marc Ryan—Lake Erie Council Scout Executive and Supreme Chief of the Fire—for contributions and gifts in kind by the lodge in 2019.

    After looking back at our year, multiple special bead awards and recognitions were presented by our Vice Chiefs to dozens of deserving youths and adults.  Lodge Chief Evan Richwalsky and Lodge Adviser Joe Wollet presented their special awards to recognize outstanding Arrowmen for their contributions this past year.  All our new 224 Ordeal, 38 Brotherhood, and 12 Vigil members were recognized.

    Larry Andrews was presented with a National Order of the Arrow Legacy Fellowship in recognition of his many years of selfless service at the lodge, section, and national levels. Larry Howell and JJ Conklin were presented with the James E. West Fellowship in celebration of their many years of service.

    Son Ben Snyder and Father Jeremy Snyder were presented with the Founder’s Award in recognition of their spirits of selfless service to our lodge.

    The evening was capped off with the Vigil Chief calling out fifteen Arrowmen for the Vigil honor:
    • Mr. Ben Altose
    • Alek B.
    • Spencer B.
    • Mr. Tim Carver
    • Mr. John Conklin Sr,
    • Steven G.
    • JJ O.
    • Joey P.
    • Zach P.
    • Donald S.
    • Mr. Mike Umstead
    • Breanden V.
    • Mr. Paul Visnosky
    • Owen W.
    • Mr. James Webb

    Kudos to all who were recognized and a sincere thank you to all those whose hard work made the evening a success, especially CJ Howard (youth chair) and Mike Gleespen (adult chair).  (And props to Christy Howard and Jackson Luck for taking photographs!)

  • Fall Fellowship In Review

    Arrowmen gathered at Camp Stigwandish over the weekend of October 18-20 for this year’s Fall Fellowship and the final edition of our Back to the Future themed events.  After setting up their tents in campsites organized by chapters, members gathered at the dining hall for fellowship, some games, and a showing of Back to the Future III.

    Following a crisp, chilly night, everyone enjoyed a delicious breakfast of biscuits and sausage gravy before beginning the morning’s service projects.  Crews hit the trails to clean up branches and debris, including clearing several large logs that had fallen across trails.  Another crew spent the majority of the afternoon digging post holes and setting posts for the human foosball court that the lodge is funding and installing at Stig.

    After lunch, members enjoyed an Amazing Race style series of challenges across camp, capped off with a dutch oven cook off.  LEC members participated in the national Thrive webinar with all the lodges across the country, discussing how to improve elections, inductions, and activation.

    Everyone enjoyed a hearty dinner before elections for 2020 lodge officers. Congratulations to the following Arrowmen who were elected:

    • Lodge Chief: Evan R.
    • Executive Vice Chief: Patrick S.
    • Vice Chief, Program: Trevor H.
    • Vice Chief, Membership: Kaleb C.
    • Vice Chief, Native American Traditions: JJ O.
    • Vice Chief, Communications: Donnie S.
    • Vice Chief, Finance: Max H.
    • Chippewa Chapter Chief: Ian T.
    • Kittan Chapter Chief: Alek B.
    • Naxa Sipu Chapter Chief: Owen W.

    Members capped off the evening by playing casino games and inducting three scouts to the Brotherhood honor.  And what Wild West-themed weekend would be complete without root beer?!

    On Sunday morning, members were treated to a Paul Bunyan breakfast.  The lodge also inducted the last two Vigil honor members for this year: Nick J and Jen Folkman—congratulations!

    Join us on Saturday, February 1, to celebrate a fantastic 2019 at our Winter Banquet!

  • Super Summer Induction
    Great weather and fantastic fun capped off the most attended lodge event in our history thus far! Over 150 Arrowmen came out to Beaumont Scout Reservation for our Summer Induction Weekend from August 23-25.

    As members gathered Friday evening, they participated in activities including a new 9 Square in the Air game constructed by Larry Andrews and donated to the lodge—thank you, Larry!!

    Saturday morning members did service along the trails at camp, included building stairs along the Beaumont Trail.

    The OA circle was jam-packed with current members who witnessed the induction of 37 new Ordeal members in the afternoon.

    Music filled the air as Arrowmen enjoyed the Beaumont pool, water slides, corn hole, and a cookout on Saturday afternoon.

    19 Arrowmen sealed their membership in the lodge by completing their Brotherhood Saturday evening. Everyone enjoyed casino games that night before a viewing of Back to the Future II.

    Thank you to Vice Chief of Program Owen and his team for putting together a tremendous weekend program!

    Don’t miss our Fall Fellowship for more fun, the final installment of Back to the Future, celebrating the last two Vigil recipients, and the last opportunity to earn Brotherhood this year. See you there!
