Wagion Lodge #6

Adviser’s Minute – November 2011

There’s frost on our windows, and Camp Conestoga has settled down for a long winter’s nap.   It’s the time of year when we remember our family and the things we are thankful for.   And, we look forward to the next year like a dawning, a spring time, a beginning.   Several members of your Lodge Executive Committee are already working hard to make sure that Wagion will have an amazing 2012.

Lodge Chief, Robbie Lavelle, is finalizing the roster of committee chairmen.   To be a lodge committee chairman, you must:

  • have already completed your Ordeal,
  • have your dues paid in the lodge,
  • be a registered member of the B.S.A., and
  • be under 21 years of age for your entire term.

If you are interested in being a chairman, please contact the Lodge Chief immediately.    Chairmen and Advisers will be announced in December.

Your Training Committee Chairman, Mark Stiener, and his adviser, Rich Ashford, are hard at work coordinating the Lodge Officer Training that will be held in December as well as the Lodge Leadership Development Course (LLDC) to be held January 14th, 2012.   The officer training is mandatory for all new officers and officer advisers.   The LLDC is mandatory for all committee chairmen and advisers.

Lodge Program Vice-Chief, Jacob Rizzi and his adviser Jim Crace are also hard at work planning the Lodge Banquet, to be held at Uniontown High School on Saturday, February 25th.   There will be many aspects of this event that he and his new Activities Chairman will need to have planned well ahead of the date.

I could go on and on and talk about our Treasurer, our Unit Elections committee, Communications, etc…   They are all busy right now.   It is true that Wagion never sleeps.   There’s something in there for everybody.   All you need to do is step up and say “I want to be a part.”

Please have a great Thanksgiving this year, and know that Wagion will be waiting for you.   Also, if you should happen to see a man or woman serving in uniform as a part of our country’s military this season, please remember to thank them.
