The opportunities include all the Thursdays of normal summer camp at Baiting Hollow Scout Camp (July 11, July 18, July 25, August 1, and August 8). Also, during the September Induction Weekend and Fall Fellowship.

There are several congratulations due at this point of the year. First off, congratulations to all the new inductees of both the May and June’s induction weekends; you have begun your journey into the Order and the Lodge welcomes you all. Next, to all those who achieved Brotherhood at either weekend, congratulations to those Brothers as well. In addition, congratulations to our Vigil Class of 2013.
