2005 FALL ORDEAL, SEVEN NEW MEMBERS
Dear Hungteetsepoppi Lodge,
Greetings from the 2005 Lodge Ordeal! As you read this, new members and old members have trickled back into whence they came to resume their daily habits, spirits having been lifted by an incredible weekend of growth, brotherhood, and cheerful service! Initial bad weather threatened to plunge asunder the positive attitudes of members and candidates alike, but the heavy rains and downpours were taken in stride as we plowed forward together toward the reward of a job done, and well done at that. All aspects of the weekend ran incredibly smoothly, from dedicated service projects to decadent cuisine to profound ceremonies, and this is owed in it's entirety to the positive outlook and genuine unity shown by the lodge and its leadership. In all, seven Ordeal candidates were made members through the toils of these three days and seven Ordeal members received the Brotherhood Honor.
With new members promising contribution, we moved on to recognize those who would be leading it, the new lodge officers elected at the conclave! Instated were Kevin C.; Lodge Chief, Jacob A., Andrew H., and Patrick N. as the three Vice Chiefs of Membership, Finance, and Activities respectively. We are all looking forward to a great year with these guys as our new leadership! With the weekend wrapped up and weather beaten members eager for home, the 2005 Ordeal was completed with a somber sense of achievement and another job well done. Three things more can be said about the Ordeal: The service was rewarding, the company was cheerful, and the food was ridiculously tasty! Thank you Hungteetsepoppi Lodge for this weekend of commitment and friendship!
Yours in Brotherhood,
