Lodge Vice Chief of Administration - Merlyn Neunteufel
My name is Merlyn Neunteufel and I am your 2019-2020 Vice-Chief of Administration. I have been in the Boy Scout world only for 14 months, but I have had so many amazing experiences in all of my units. I have been Assistant Senior Patrol Leader in my troop, Boatswain's Mate in my ship, Vice-President of Program and even the up and coming President for my crew. 

I can not wait to help make the Lodge even better this year and will be doing everything in my power to help better the communication and to reduce the number of “Sash and Dashers“ that come through the ordeals. Thank you for electing me the Vice-Chief of Administration. I hope you have a great year. You can contact Merlyn at
