To start the calendar year with Winter Fellowship, our Chapter won the spirit competition called “Sonic”, won the Moon Pie eating contest and two of our own received Vigil Honor; Adult Bryon Barber and Youth Hunter Barber.
Recently we held 3 Webelos Crossover Ceremonies for Packs 223, 652 and 832. Most recently we went to Spring Fellowship where we had 1 new member go through their Ordeal, 4 members seal their membership through Brotherhood and had a blast regardless how cold the weekend was.
Up to come…. Our District’s Merit Badge Fair March 14-16 we will be running the Baden Powell “New Scout Program” and Campfire Saturday night where afterwards we hold our call out ceremony for the 2014 elected Scouts and Scouters that were chosen by their peers in their Troop to joining Scouting’s National Honor Society, the Order of the Arrow.

Section Conference - April 11-13th … Our lodge is the HOST LODGE this year with the event being held at Camp Shands!!!
Here is what our Lodge website has on this event:
The 2014 Section Conference will be hosted by our very own Echockotee Lodge. Our theme is The Arrowman Effect and promises awesome shows by our lodge Shows committee. There will also be many fun inter-lodge activities such as "lodgeball", volleyball, and Ultimate Frisbee competitions. The cost will be $45 and is no further a drive than a regular fellowship, all the reason to attend and make the Echockotee Lodge contingent the biggest anyone has ever seen! We hope to see you there.
