The SMK Chapter needs your help October 7th to the 9th, to staff the Orca District Webelos-Ree at Camp Parsons.
Webelos-Ree is a campout where Webelos participate in different activities to complete their requirements for their Arrow of Light Award.
Webelos-Ree not only allows Webelos to get requirements signed off, but it also allows us to show off how cool Boy Scouts are and hopefully help continue their interest in scouting.
If you are a Ceremonialist, please take this invitation into serious consideration, since the OA will host a Potlatch for the Cubs at the event.
Your help in the songs, stories, and dances will be much appreciated.
Also, if you are not interested in participating in a Potlatch, there are still more ways you can help!
Arrowmen are also needed during the weekend by running the stations, and act as Den Guides.
If you are interested in staffing this event, please sign up using this link: Webelos-Ree Sign Up
You'll be doing the Webelos a great service by staffing. Thank you.

It's time to clockrenew your membership in the Order of the Arrow. Membership renewal emails went out last weekend but unfortunately they coincided with an upgrade of the council website. Hopefully, all links are now working and we apologize for any inconveniences you might have experienced.

You will receive an email in the next few days indicating the current state of your membership, please watch your inbox. Remember, for your OA membership to be valid you must also have a current BSA registration.

If you went through your Ordeal this Spring your membership is good through June 2017.
