Bay Area CouncilBANQUET & LLD 2023

OA Lodge Banquet &
Lodge Leadership Development 2023

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 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 earlier this year.

The Lodge Leadership and Development Conference to be held earlier that morning 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 LLD section of the conference in the morning.  All youth and adult Arrowmen are encouraged to attend also.  If you attend the LLD section, a pizza lunch will be provided for you along with an OA LLD trained patch.  Please note that some of the classes may change and an announcement will be made if that happens.

The Activities section in the afternoon will allow you to choose between two of the following activities: Singing and drumming, American Indian dancing, crafts and games.

Afterwards, we will conduct our Annual Business Meeting and cap off the evening with our banquet for a good meal, fellowship, and awards.  Even if you can only attend the banquet we look forward to visiting with you then.  You don't want to miss it.
