This past weekend the lodge gathered at Camp Owen J. Brorein for our Fall event. We offered both Ordeal and Brotherhood opportunities and provided much needed service to the camp. The lodge contributed over 500 hours of service to the camp over the span of just one day. Service mostly consisted of burning brush, splitting logs, moving downed trees, and mulching branches. The lodge welcomed 67 new members upon the completion of their ordeal and 14 members sealed their membership in the OA with brotherhood. So many people attended the weekend that two Ordeal ceremonies had to be held.
In addition to our weekend of service, everyone also found time to have some great fun. The basketball court and trading post at Brorein was a hot spot at the end of the day, and dinner on Saturday proved to be a great fellowship opportunity for everyone's chapter.
At the weekend, we all made sure to follow the GTBAC and National OA guidelines on Covid-19. Although the event was only one night, it was a great success. It offered brotherhood and fellowship in a time we need it the most.
