Lodge - Lodge Chief September Letter Posted Oct. 9, 2021
Brothers,

First, I would like to congratulate our brothers who sealed their membership in the Order of the Arrow during Resident Camp at Camp Sequassen by completing the Brotherhood induction process. As Allowat says, “You are now the chiefs, you are the leaders,” and we can’t wait to see what you have in store for us.

As we enter the new year, I want to share how I’m looking at the lodge, it’s a different angle than most. Look at your lodge flap and imagine standing next to the wolf and Chief Owaneco. For years we have looked at that view from the same angle into that beautiful valley, not aspiring to see it from a new direction. My goal for the lodge is for you to look beyond the horizon and see what new adventures lay beyond that. Look into the rising sun and strive to reach, challenge yourself to make a brighter future for our lodge.

This year stop to give a helping hand, kindle the fire of cheerfulness in all of us and unite the lodge as one unified brotherhood. To reach this rising sun I present 3 pillars for us to build upon this year. First, “strive to challenge the known & unknown”, if you see something within the Lodge that isn’t working or needs to be changed, challenge the idea so we bring a better tomorrow for our lodge. Second, bring “thorough creativity,” think outside the box and bring new ideas to the table. Be thoughtful in your words and actions because they will make the journey challenging or smooth.

Finally “bonding through brotherhood”, at every chance, you can this year look to the right or left of yourself and search for brother wearing their sash or flap, talk to them, and from there will you feed our fire of cheerfulness and new friendships can grow. Through these 3 pillars, we can look beyond just ourselves and see the full panoramic view to make this year the most memorable, impactful, and exciting experience for all Arrowmen in Owaneco Lodge.

Yours in WWW,
Joe Loffredo
Lodge Chief
