Event Details

Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Lodge 40’s 13th Annual Order of the Arrow Spring Fellowship

Open to all Arrowmen and their Families

Once again, Order of the Arrow will be hosting a Spring Fellowship on May 11th!  The intent is to gather together in the spirit of cheerful service, and have fun.  The Lodge will be hosting several service projects from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM and all are welcome, not just Arrowmen.  If you plan to participate, please bring work clothes and work-related items like work gloves and a water bottle.  Thank you for your dedication to cheerful service.

The day will not only be a day of service but also fun. With a morning of service around the camp, we will be doing basic cheerful work projects. The biggest event of the day will be the Lodge Key 5 elections at the end of the day.  Come and vote. 

Also, if you are an Ordeal Member, and have been so for 10 months, this is a terrific opportunity to seal your membership in the order by accepting the Brotherhood Honor.   If you did your Ordeal the first week at Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan 2017 or any years previous, you are eligible to do Brotherhood on this day. 

2018 Ordeals from MSR Weeks 3 & 5 and Fall Conclave will not be eligible for this Brotherhood ceremony on this date.
