Induction Weekend Recap

THANK YOU to everyone who came out to our recent induction weekend. We inducted more than 200 new members and welcomed them into the Order of the Arrow. At the same time, a bunch of our fellow Arrowmen sealed their membership by attaining Brotherhood. We did a lot of great work for Camp Sequoyah.

Our next induction weekend will be in March at Camp Comer.
