OA Memorial Day Workers Weekend
2019 Memorial Day
(Sponsored by the Order of the Arrow)
OPEN TO ALL SCOUTS AND SCOUTERS
Once again, it’s time to schedule a trip to the Northwoods, to Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout Reservation during the Memorial Day weekend to help prepare our camp for the90th anniversary 2019 season of Scouting.
This weekend of cheerful service is not just for members of the Order of the Arrow, but for any Scout, Scouter, or friend of Scouting who would like to come. ΑΦΩ Chapters are also welcome to attend. We encourage Units to sign up for specific projects. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
The weekend is not all work, but also FUN. You will have time to enjoy opportunities like fishing, hiking, canoeing, crafting, or sitting around a campfire with some old (and maybe new) friends. Enjoy the great Northwoods. Bring your own tent or reserve a cabin along the shore of Lake Killian.
Also, if you are an Ordeal Member, and have been so since July 2018, this is a terrific opportunity to seal your membership in the order by accepting the Brotherhood Honor. Eligible Ordeal members are welcome to the Brotherhood! If you completed your Ordeal in 2017 or 2018 your Brotherhood fees are paid for this year, the cost would be just the event fees for the food.
The brand new 2019 service shirts will be available for ALL that come and give service. As always, Sustaining Members are free.
We have also setup a self-service Google doc for drivers to find riders and riders to find a ride. If you have an open seat or two, or need a ride use the following link https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfDB3EIqUJb1sp-8YHbX5ZuUWqtG10k8AXBZMhGrJii7tbfJw/viewform?usp=sf_link
