We’re just a few days away from the year’s biggest weekend! Join us October 3-5 at Camp Sequoyah (4907 County Road 11, Delta, AL, 36258) as we elect our new slate of lodge officers, induct a new class of Vigil Honor recipients, celebrate all that we accomplished in 2014, and look ahead to what’s in store for 2015.

The fellowship committee has marked this year’s event as “COOSA FILM FEST”, offering lodge members cinematic experiences throughout the weekend, including a live game of quidditch! We’re bringing some inflatables, a ton of food, and plenty of room for patch trading and fellowship.

Did we mention that you won’t have to miss the big game? We’ll have the Coosa Lodge Tailgate Party in the dining hall, where you can catch the latest action in SEC football, cheer with fellow fans, jeer the fans of the other team, and enjoy watching the game with your Brothers.

The cost is $30 per member and is included in the 2014 Event Pass. Click here to register online.

Westmoreland, new brothers, and cheerful service!

by Dylan Clark on September 22, 2014

This past weekend, Coosa lodge gathered for one final Ordeal of 2014, and to say things went well might be an understatement!

Friday evening, members and candidates alike from across the state came together in Florence at Camp Westmoreland, where Coosa hasn’t had an Ordeal since 2012. As everything got underway, the Lodge prepared to induct 94 new members into the Order.

Saturday, groups worked to improve camp and get it ready for the fall Scouting season. Amongst the projects worked on was a repainting Westmoreland’s dining hall, restoring the building to its former glory! From repairing trails & improving campsites to fixing buildings & restoring various areas, Coosa had it covered. Come Saturday afternoon, we also inducted 23 new Brotherhood members! That night, the lodge gathered for a feast of delicious steaks followed by a cracker barrel and a movie, all thanks to the hard work of the kitchen and Coosa Shows staff.

With a total attendance of 210, the weekend was a success and everyone departed Sunday morning with all eyes on Fall Fellowship, which is just two weeks away! (October 3-5) Stay tuned, for we’ll have more information released starting tomorrow and throughout the following week.

Get Connected! Stay updated on all things Coosa! Find us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or subscribe to our email updates to get the latest news and updates directly from the Lodge Executive Committee and the Lodge Communications Team.
