The Flaming Arrow – Lodge Spring Newsletter
Lodge jumped into the Fall of 2014 with a bang and a flash of energy. All of the Tribes have made it their mission to spread Camp’s message, and they have done so very well. This Fall, Springfield Tribe took a hike, complete with a traditional pack out lunch and tea, at Lincoln Memorial Gardens. Springfield also volunteered at a local holiday store where they took children around and helped them shop for gifts for their family for the holiday season. This is called the Mini O’Beirne Crisis Nursery. Tri-State kicked off their busy Fall season with their first meeting on October 25th. Following this they hosted a work weekend at Camp on November 14th through 16th. During the weekend the tribe split and collected wood in preparation of this Spring season. Tribe Official Andrew Derby reported the weekend as a great success saying, “Throughout the weekend, especially during the work project, we bonded as a tribe and also with other tribes.” Many of the tribes participated in Trick-or-Treating for camp this year raising money for camp, and collecting food items to donate to the poor.
The tribes look forward to continuing their hard work by planning some events for the late winter early spring. A few members and the officials are planning Hearts for Heepwahs on Valentines Day. This is just like the annual Saturday Spectacular, but it will be on Valentines Day. Parents can drop their kids off for 4-5 hours so that they can go out on a date. In the meantime, the kids will experience a week of camp crammed into a few exciting hours. There will be a mini marathon, camp games, tug of war, tie dye, and handicrafts.
Thanks so much to everyone for all the hard work you’ve done! We hope you have a wonderful start to the year, and we can’t wait to see you and hear what more great acts you’ve accomplished at Spring Lodge Reunion on the weekend of April 10 -12! Heepwah!
Love, the Lodge Officials
