Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are not able to have Fall Reunion as it traditionally happens. The Lodge has decided that in order to continue to induct new members, instead of one large Fall Reunion, we will be breaking up our Fall Reunion into multiple weekends at the Beaumont Scout Reservation and S-F Scout Ranch. Each weekend will have 2 sessions, one Friday evening to Saturday afternoon session, and one Saturday evening to Sunday afternoon session. These will be attended on an individual basis, candidates sign up without their troop or chapter and the lodge will provide leadership. The Pre-Ordeal Ceremony will be conducted the first night, with the Ordeal being completed the next day. Each session will only be open to 35 candidates.
Joe Nobles – Fall Reunion Chairman
Michael Colletti – Lodge Chief
Bob Veenstra – Lodge Adviser
