Spring 2021

My Fellow Brothers,

We enter this year with the Lodge still under the restrictions of the Coronavirus Pandemic. I thank each and every single one of you for your resilience during this time. While we may be wearing masks and practicing social distancing, it is because of your strong work that we are still able to have events. Your LEC met in January at Woodruff Scout Camp and I thank each and every single member for the hard work that went on that weekend. Additionally, this letter finds the lodge in the middle of the election season. I ask that you provide the principles of cheerfulness, brotherhood, and service as instilled in each of us by our founders to the election process. Without the election process, we would have no pipeline for candidates, and no candidates would cause our order to become non-existent. I ask for your full assistance in ensuring that we have a smooth and successful election season. I look forward to greeting each and every single one of you in March at our Spring Gathering (13th-15th) at Bert Adams, it will be a great weekend to “go home” and enjoy camp. Our theme this year is Survivor and I can ensure you that it is going to be an event you do not want to miss! In closing, I would like to take a moment and thank each and every brother who supported the Atlanta Area Council Winter Camp over Christmas Break, 3 of the Board members served as staff (Joey D’Anna (VCP), Jack Murlin (Secretary), and myself (Lodge Chief). Additionally, many other brothers such as Audrey Hardage (Sipel Chief) served on the staff. Thank you for your support of our council and camping. It is most appreciated.

Yours in Cheerful Service,
Elliot M. Paisner II
