Thomas is also leading the planning of the annual lodge leadership development program to be held in December.

National Virtual Induction Weekend Next Month
The Order of the Arrow has announced that they will conduct a virtual National Induction weekend Nov. 6 & 7. The program is being done in conjunction with Kon Wapos Lodge within the Bay-Lakes Council. It will consist of National and local lodge programming to welcome new members into the Order of the Arrow. Ordeal candidates should save the dates. The Ordeal will run from Friday night into Saturday evening, with National OA programming to follow on Saturday night.
