This year's Conclave ... CONCLAVE! was a big one; there were over 1250 attendees, 235 of them where from Wahunsenakah, making the 2019 SR-7A Conclave the largest Order of the Arrow gathering other than NOAC. What a way to celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of the OA in VA! This year, Wahunsenakah earned two awards: the SPIRIT award and the We Support Camping award. Thank you to all you hard-working arrowmen who helped make this happen! Duck - duck - mighty duck!

As per the clarifications in Mr. Robinson's email, no shoes are being collected at Conclave, just SOCKS.
Thank you Mr. Fabry for finding out this change. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused.

The 2019 Conclave Service Project (brought to you directly from the lodge Facebook page):
"This year, SR-7A is proud to announce that we have partnered with Shood, an organization dedicated to providing proper shoes and foot care to those living in poverty around the Richmond area. At Conclave, we will be assembling foot care bags to help Richmond's homeless population. For these bags to be complete, bring at least four (4) pairs of new men's or woman's athletic socks of any brand, color, or size Friday night and we'll pick them up Friday night to be put in the bags on Saturday. Help others with the Conclave Service Project, and compete against other lodges in SR-7A to see who brings the most socks!"
