Next Big Event: Shawnee Lodge Fall Reunion!
September 9-11: Shawnee Lodge Fall Reunion @ S-F Scout Ranch
You won’t want to miss our lodge’s biggest annual event! This is the first of two opportunities for those elected in 2022 to be inducted into our Order. Those eligible can seal their membership by receiving the Brotherhood Honor. Our chapter and Shawnee Lodge will also conduct officer elections for 2022-2023 at this event. If you are interested in running for a chapter office, please fill out this form. We will need many arrowmen to assist with our ceremonies by serving as an elangomat, nimat, and/or torchbearer. Please fill out this form if you are willing to help out.
Please refer to the event calendar for all other upcoming events.
2022-2023 Chapter Officer Nominations
At the 2022 Fall Reunion, youth arrowmen from Boone Trails will elect new chapter officers for the 2022-2023 term. With the assistance of a team of chairmen and advisors, the four chapter officers lead the Chapter Executive Committee and plan the annual program for the chapter. If you are interested in running for a position for the 2022-2023 term, fill out this form and the Nominating Committee will consider you for a spot on the ballot! Thank you for your interest and willingness to serve our Order.
The election is held at the Fall Reunion Chapter Meeting which will be held Saturday, September 10. Nominations for candidates will close one hour ahead of the posted time the meeting begins.
New Lodge Ceremonialist Recognition Program
Shawnee Lodge has implemented a brand-new Ceremonial Team Recognition Program for 2022 and beyond! The program features a hanging patch and pins to place on the patch. Both will be available for purchase at lodge events with a trading post.
To earn the patch and first pin, an arrowman must participate in two ceremonies and attend an event designed to better ceremonial teams.
To earn additional pins, an arrowman must participate in two ceremonies since the last pin earned.
More info about this exciting new program can be found here! If you have participated in ceremonies in the past, those count for the award!

Only dues-paid members are considered “arrowmen in good standing” with Shawnee Lodge. This status includes the right to attend chapter and lodge events, hold leadership positions, receive publications, receive honors given by the chapter or lodge, and wear a lodge flap.
