Watonala Lodge will be hosting the first of hopefully an annual event on September 29th – 30th, 2012. Each lodge in Mississippi is invited to attend. We hope to create a fun time filled with fellowship and good food. We have the opportunity to draw a large crowd due to this event being geographically closer than many of us travel to attend conclave. We also have the opportunity to do something new, rather than the same old routine that some lodges may experience at conclave.
Lodges should arrive, check in, and setup your campsite at Camp Seminole by 10am SATURDAY morning. Then, we'll kick off some games prior to Lunch, and follow with more games and activities before supper. Sunday we will have breakfast, followed by more programs. Then, we’ll end with a closing banquet for lunch.
Saturday evening we will have a statewide brotherhood ceremony. We ask that each lodge provide one of the characters of the ceremony (so that it truly can be a statewide ceremony) as well as bring all the brotherhood sashes your lodge may need for the ceremony.
If you are a member of Watonala Lodge, we ask that you come Friday night to help us prepare. Your meals will be covered.
