Lodge Picnic – THIS SATURDAY!!!

This weekend, Owaneco Lodge is bringing back an old tradition, the Annual Spring Picnic at Hoyt Scout Reservation. This event is open to all members of the Order of the Arrow and for the first time, we are inviting all newly elected candidates to this awesome event!
This Saturday from 9a-3p, we will be building Gaga pits at Hoyt. Lunch will be provided, followed by fun activities, games and an information session that is open to all candidates and parents at 2p. By the way, did I mention that this event is FREE for everyone?
