TQB Ceremony Teams Need Your Help!

Posted on Mar 30 2017 - 2:15am

To all Brothers:

This is a reminder to all youth Brothers in our Chapter that we hold weekly ceremony practices on Sundays from 3:00pm - 4:30pm at the Duluth Masonic Lodge.

Now that Arrow of Light and Crossover ceremonies are completed for the spring, we turn our attention to preparation for the spring Ordeals.  Our Chapter provides the service of performing both the Pre-Ordeal and Ordeal ceremonies for the Lodge.  The Ordeal weekends will take place at Woodruff (May 5 - 7) and at Bert Adams (May 19 - 21).

As of this writing, we have qualified guys for each of the four parts (Allowat Sakima, Nutiket, Kichkinet and Meteu), but we are looking for a few more Brothers that would like to become a part of our ceremony team.  No acting experience is necessary, but if you have some, then this would be a great way to expand on it.

Additionally, we always can use assistance (youth and adult) with on site ceremony set-up and break down for both the Pre- Ordeal and Ordeal ceremonies.  This is a great way to learn a little more about the ceremony performances themselves, so please give that some consideration as you make plans to attend either one, or both of the Ordeal weekends.

Please give this your utmost consideration and I hope to see you at one of our practices.

Yours in Brotherhood,
Mr. Tom Owens

Meals for Connie

First of all  - just a quick note that Connie Fisher did return home from the hospital yesterday afternoon (in case you haven't seen it on Facebook).  I know that both she and Jim are relieved that she is back at home.  It will still be some time before she is completely 100% and we all look forward to that day.

SR-9 Heartland Gathering (formerly Conclave) - April 21-23, 2017 at Camp Lumpkin

The deadline for Section memorabilia preorders is January 25th.
Heartland Gathering (Conclave)
April 21-23, 2017
Service Lodge – Chattahoochee
Camp Lumpkin, LaGrange, GA
Memorabilia Preorder Deadline: January 25, 2017 — No orders will be accepted after this date
Registration Deadline: March 22, 2017 — $18 late fee applies after this date
On August 27, 2016, the Section SR-9 Council of Chiefs approved unanimously to rename the section conclave to the Heartland Gathering. The origin of “Heartland” is from the section tag line in use since the formation of SR-9, Serving the Southern Heartland.
One of the primary purposes of the Southern Region, Section 9, Order of the Arrow is to conduct an annual meeting for delegates of its member Lodges. This annual meeting is the Heartland Gathering. The aim of the Heartland Gathering is to provide a central place for arrowmen throughout the Section to gather for a weekend of fun and fellowship. The event includes leadership development training, as well as various competitions and games.
Think back to the Ordeal ceremony, when the mighty chief welcomed you to the Order, and “Remember the Admonition . . .” This is the theme of the inaugural Heartland Gathering.
Today’s world is full of unsettling news on a daily basis. It is easy to feel the hostility within society, but let us remember the ties of brotherhood which bind us all together. Let us recall our emotions when we received our brand new Ordeal sash, or recited the OA Obligation for the first time. We, the Arrowmen of the Southern Heartland, will recommit ourselves to these ties of brotherhood on April 21-23, 2017 at Camp Frank G. Lumpkin. The Heartland Gathering promises to be an exciting weekend bringing together the Arrowmen of Alabama and Georgia.
As an added bonus, if you register with your lodge by January 31, you will be entered to win a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses or one of five event patch sets. Contact your lodge leadership for more information and to register for the 2017 Heartland Gathering.
NOTE: If you are unable to attend the Heartland Gathering you can still order Section memorabilia until January 25th using the registration link below.
