Sunyakwa Report 
 by Jack U. 

In Sunyakwa we have been planning the yearly Camporee which is happening on April 28th-30th at Camp Edwards. The theme is set to be medieval with the staff and scouts being encouraged to dress in the theme. The Camporee is being run by Sunyakwa member Sophia K. We would love to get volunteers to help out over the weekend, so if you are interested please email Sophia. We have also been visiting troops for OA elections which are being run by Cedric B. We have already found many eligible scouts that we are excited to give an opportunity to join OA. If you have any questions please email me, Jack U., Sunyakwa Chapter Chief here.

Winter Fellowship Feedback

I am asking for your help with improving our events.

I want to know what you want to see in an event and what activities interest you, so that I can better cater the lodge events to fit our members.
If you could take time to complete the survey below to let me know what you want out of an event I would greatly appreciate it. (I recommend completing this survey at your next Chapter meeting as group!)

Thank you for your help in making our events better and better!

Articles can be summited any time by sending them to the Secretary.
