Spring Fling Lodge Event

   The Spring Lodge event on April 8-10th is coming quickly and is a different type of event this years as it is a camping / outdoor event. The event will be at Lake Selmac in Selma Oregon at the County Park and will have hiking, biking, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, and more. We will be mixing up the cooking as well, as each chapter will split apart, prepare a meal, and then bring it to a potluck type feast with the rest of the lodge.

    Registration will be $30 to cover the costs of food, lodging, and any unexpected costs.  If you have not yet paid your 2016 dues, you can take care of it when you pay for the event onsite, or online at the OA tab of the Crater Lake Council website, or at a Council office.
