As we all settle in and finish playing with the bubble wrap from our shiny new year, it’s time to knock the dust off of our inner journalist. The lodge’s printed newsletter, the Red Feather Herald, will be going to print soon, and a newsletter is the sum of its articles.

Officers and advisers, we need your articles for the winter edition of the newsletter. Whether it be information about your chapter and chapter events, or upcoming lodge events, if you want it in the newsletter, send it in.

You may submit articles to myself at webmaster@coosa50.org or to Chris at chris@dimwell.net. The deadline for submissions is Friday, January 30.

In just two weeks, Section SR-9 is running a new winter event. Instead of the Winter Leadership Retreat, the SR-9 Council of Chiefs is hosting the inaugural Section Winter Activities Gathering (yep, SWAG) at Camp Comer on from January 30th to February 1st, 2015.

The cost is $25. Click here to register online.

The weekend’s schedule is also available. Click here to download the schedule.

The event will focus on American Indian activities, including make-and-take classes and traditional instructional classes. Come join some of the best and brightest from across SR-9 as they share their wisdom and experience in regalia construction, ceremony performance, drumming and singing, dancing, and more.

The annual winter Council of Chiefs meeting will be held on Saturday. If you’ve ever wanted a behind-the-scenes look at how an event like Conclave comes together, you won’t want to miss this meeting.

This will be a great weekend of fun and fellowship!
