Twenty Coosa Lodge Arrowmen attended last Saturday’s Hawk Day event at Camp Tranquility located inside Oak Mountain State Park. The weather was perfect for a very successful day of service.

Everyone worked together to fill four dump truck loads of scrap wood, old roofing shingles, nails, trash, and debris from the site of the Unit Lodge restoration. Once the site was cleared, everyone pitched in to unload and stack a large load of new rough cut wood siding that will be used in the future to replace the old rotten siding that was removed from the Unit Lodge. The Arrowmen then filled another dump truck with more scrap building materials and old discarded roofing shingles taken from around the Rock Leader Lodge restoration site.

After a quick lunch break, it was back to work to clear clogged road culverts and cut down several large dead trees to prevent them from falling and damaging the restored cabins at the camp. Afterwards, everyone gathered together to reflect upon another job well done and look forward to Conclave.

Thanks to everyone who helped at Camp Tranquility! The Ranger was amazed at how much work you were able to accomplish in such a short amount of time.
