OA Lodge Banquet &
Lodge Leadership Development 2018


Wihinipa Hinsa Lodge is proud to announce our annual Lodge Banquet and Lodge Leadership Development Conference. This is a very important time for all of our Lodge Chapters to come together and celebrate the past year and plan for an even better upcoming year of fellowship and service within Bay Area Council.

The banquet is a social event to enjoy good food and good fellowship with friends you may not have seen for a while or to meet new friends who share similar interests as you.  We have lowered the cost of the banquet from $20 to $15 to encourage more Arrowmen and their guests to join us.  We ask everyone to bring a dessert to share with others if you are able.  We will present lodge awards to our deserving Arrowmen and recognize our Lodge and Chapter officers for their service this past year.  We will also present awards that our lodge youth earned at Section Conclave a few weeks ago.

The Lodge Leadership and Development Conference is open for all Arrowmen to attend.  There are several classes available to choose from.  All newly elected chapter and lodge officers must attend the conference.  All youth and adults interested in conducting unit elections should attend that session at the conference.

A long-time Scouter of Bay Area Council has donated his patch and Scouting memorabilia collection to the lodge.  We will hold a sale and auction starting at 3 PM.  All proceeds will benefit our lodge and will help offset any costs in the planned painting and refurbishing of our lodge home.  For more information on the items available contact Michael Griffin at
