Adviser Minute, February 2018


Welcome to 2018!!  What an exciting year we have in store for us.  With Spring just around the corner, we have three big events to keep our Springtime active.   In March we will host our Lodge Leadership Development training and our Spring Induction and Service weekend in order to start preparing our council camps for the busy 2018 camping season as well as welcome our newly elected Scouts as they endeavor to complete their Induction in this our great and honorable Brotherhood.

In April, we head to Camp Rock Enon for CONCLAVE!!!  Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to be part of over 1,000 fellow Arrowmen from across Virginia, meeting in an annual pilgrimage to one of our six Lodge camps to participate in Training, fellowship and in the spirit of great competition amongst our Lodges for the highly coveted Spirit Award and Lodge of the Year.

Adviser's Minute- Spring 2017


Brothers, I am very excited about the upcoming months of 2017. We have diligently been working on several major initiatives, among them the rollout of a new website and a new and exciting format for our Lodge newsletter, The Tom-Tom. I do apologize for the delays in getting our newsletter published in a timely manner; I know we have inconvenienced many of our Brothers. Change does sometimes come at a cost, but we are back on track to get all of our communications efforts on a more sound footing and back to a more regular publishing schedule.

Adviser’s Minute - Summer 2016

July 24, 2016     


Hope your summer is going well.  As summer camp season is wrapping up and we are heading into the fall season, we are actively planning our Fall Service Weekend and our annual Fall Fellowship.  We have some great service opportunities in the works and from what I hear, some pretty awesome Fall Fellowship plans in the works to make our Fall activities exciting.  I hope to see all of our brothers in attendance and as volunteers at both fall events. Remember, this is your lodge and it is only as strong as those willing to make it great.  See the registration links in this edition of the Tom-Tom and SIGN UP Today!!
Please take a look at a couple events outlined later in this edition, which took place over these past few months that have truly inspired me with the level of cheerful service those listed individuals gave above and beyond when it truly needed to be done; Thank you for being the leaders we need and for being willing to step up and get things done.  It is greatly appreciated.

Advisor's Minute - January 2016


Happy New Year! I hope this finds you well in the New Year and fully engaged in the planning of Cheerful Service to others; the Hallmark of our great organization.

Since it is the beginning of the new year, I wanted to personally reach out to each adult member of the Lodge and ask if you would consider volunteering as one of our 2016 committee advisers or volunteering to assist one of our seven (7) chapter advisers that are working ever so diligently to provide an exceptional leadership environment for all of our youth Arrowmen.
