We know Wahunsenakah has a TON of spirit, so let's show it on National Rubber Ducky Day. Post a picture, or two, of your rubber duck in your daily activities on Monday, January 13! Be sure to tag either our Instagram, @wahunsenakah_duck_333, or our Facebook, Wahunsenakah Lodge (our public page, not the Group), when you post your photo.
At the 2019 Summer Service Weekend, a Lodge Rules Amendments Committee met to update the Lodge Rules for 2019. At the November 2019 LEC, the LEC approved the amendments to be sent out to general membership for consultation. This is all per the current Lodge Rules amendment process described in the Lodge Rules. The link below directs to a google doc with the Lodge Rules, with all amendments as agreed upon by the LEC.
Please do not comment on this document. However, if you have an item you wish to be addressed, please send an email to myself (firstname.lastname@example.org). I will be taking emails until December 4. After this date, the Youth on the LEC will discuss any additional suggestions and make final adjustments to the Lodge Rules. The final version will be sent out December 11, 2019.
At the holiday banquet please make sure to find your way to the voting table, where Youth can vote for or against the amendments as a whole.

Three news items from the American Indian Activities (AIA) committee:
1. "The Wahunsenakah Lodge AIA (Dance Team & Singers) would like to invite and encourage ALL Ceremony Teams (Lodge or Chapter) to attend our monthly meetings. You can get some great expert guidance on regalia based on the tribal affiliation you are going to be portraying. The Lodge Chief has said that all Ceremony Teams need to be correct in their regalia and portrayal of the Native people. So let the AIA help." (Tommy Wilkinson, AIA Adult Adviser)
