Lodge Member Resource and Interest Survey

To best serve our membership, camps, units, and council, the lodge leadership has commissioned this survey of its members to identify our wealth of resources and skills in its members as well as their interests. Please take a few moments to take the survey in the link below.

Note: If you already completed a hard-copy version of the survey at the 2019 April Service Weekend, you do not need to complete this survey – it is the same.


Due to impending inclement weather this afternoon and evening, the annual lodge banquet scheduled for this evening has been postponed to MARCH 24th, 2019.
The same location and time apply for the postpone date – 4 pm, Downingtown Technical High School.
If you are unable to attend the postpone date and/or would like a refund, please contact
The lodge committee meeting that was scheduled for this afternoon will also be postponed to March 24th at 3 pm.
