2015 Fall Update

    SEPTEMBER FALL FELLOWSHIP AND NOVEMBER LODGE BANQUET

This September, Arrowmen from across Tejas Lodge will gather at Camp Pirtle for a weekend of fellowship, competition, and lodge elections. Registration starts at 8:00 am on Saturday and goes until 10:00 am on Sunday. Before this event however, every chapter should have their chapter officers elected. Chapter officer elections should take place at the next chapter meeting before the fall fellowship. One important event that is happening at the fall fellowship are lodge officer elections. For anyone interested in running for a lodge position, they must get a letter of recommendation from their chapter adviser. The letter must then be sent to the lodge adviser, Matt L. before the weekend. At the Fall Fellowship, lodge officer candidates will be meeting at the Founders Lodge at 11 a.m.

Our final lodge event of the year will be the Tejas Lodge’s annual banquet. This will be the final event for 2015 officers and you will see the installation of the new 2016 officers. The lodge will make final award presentations to the retiring chapters. We will have a guest speaker and a live auction. The banquet will be in Henderson at the First United Methodist Church.
