Smoke Signals from the Chief
Welcome everyone to the eleventh year of Takoda Lodge! I would like to congratulate all those new members into the Lodge. As always I encourage everyone to read all about all the activities coming up and attend their chapter meetings. It’s some of the best ways to learn on what the OA has to offer!
This year I really want to work on getting to know those at the Chapter level and help them in participating in more fun activities that the OA has to offer (such as Section-wide events that hold over 12 different Lodges). There are also OA high adventures, which are like your average high adventure, but way longer, and much cheaper!
I am happy to be re-elected as your Lodge Chief for my third term. I am excited to say that my team and I have some fun things planned for the next two years, so here's looking forward!!
Anthony Malisch, Takoda Lodge Chief
