Nawakwa Lodge leadership would like to acknowledge the fantastic cheerful service the following Arrowmen have provided, which we feel goes over and above what is asked of these individuals on a daily basis and truly represents our legacy in cheerful service.
In April, the Lodge sent a contingent of volunteers to the former Bayport Scout Reservation to bring home to Camp T. Brady Saunders and the Cub and Webelos Adventure Camp over 70 canvas tents, tent frames and platforms, along with other items purchased from the camp. These items will be used to set up new camps and replace other aging tents in both camps. These volunteers work an exhausting day breaking down, consolidating, and transporting a semi-tractor trailer load of the listed equipment back to HOVC. We are truly grateful for their service and hard work all day in order to make our camps a better place!
Also in April, at our annual section Conclave, the following individuals were asked sometime during the weekend to fill in special work efforts. In addition to all the regular Lodge and Chapter volunteers it takes to actually participate in a conclave (Registrations: Razz, Scott & Robert; Ceremonies team, Dance team, spirit…) these folks stepped up at the last minute to perform much needed service to both the Lodge and the Section. A sincere Thank you for their efforts.
And lastly, in June, literally two (2) days before the opening of the 2016 Summer Camp sessions, a severe storm rolls through Goochland and directly through both camps at the Heart of Virginia Scout Reservation. These folks answered the call to restore the camp to it proper state before the first set of campers arrived on Sunday. These folks worked late into the evening and all day Saturday to reset tents, platforms, clear trees and debris as well as a host of other tasks and chores. Because of these folks not a step was missed and summer camp opened on time and more beautiful than ever. Thank you for answering the call!!!
Well done folks!
