The first of July marked the New Year for the lodge; as such unless you went through your ordeal in 2014 your dues are now expired! Now is the time to renew your commitment to the order by renewing your lodge dues. It is fast and convenient by using our on line service.
Now is also the time to ensure your BSA registration is in good standing. Your OA membership is only valid with a current BSA registration.
2015 marks the 100th Anniversary of The Order of the Arrow. As such, T'Kope Kwiskwis Lodge is creating a Lodge History for the OA Centennial celebrations and is asking members if they have anything from the past to contribute.
Articles, documents, artifacts, photos and stories from the 60 years of T'Kope Kwiskwis would be greatfully received.
I hope you are enjoying this beautiful summer weather and are able to spend time with your family and friends. I also hope you have some great summer Scouting Adventures planned for this season as well.
If you do not have ArrowCorps on your calendar, there is still time to sign up. Service to others is at the core of the mission of the Order of the Arrow. What better way to provide public service and have fun than to spend a week in Mt. Rainier National Park or the surrounding National Forest.
You can register on line through the Lodge website at tkopekwiskwis.org. The cost is $250, which covers about everything. Please remember that we also have some Camperships available, everyone should be able to attend. ArrowCorps2014 is open to ALL BSA registered people 14 and above.
Hope to see you at ArrowCorps 2014.

Spring Fellowship was a blast! From Lodge elections to trying out the new Lodge Canoe, Arrowmen had an amazing time on the weekend of June 20th - 22nd. Some of the events were movies, games, lodge elections, Frisbee golf, ladder ball, the lodge canoe, Marmot Party, the 60th Anniversary Banquet, silent and live auctions, and the 60th anniversary Ceremony held in the Longhouse. The food was amazing and there was always enough to eat, the trading post was filled with great snacks, and the 60th patch looks spectacular.
Lastly, congratulations to all those elected to be the 2014-2015 Lodge Officers and thank you to all who attended.
