Chiefly Speaking



I am looking forward to the year and I hope to see you all continue in the OA and Scouting. I am also looking forward to working with our Lodge Adviser Blair Hope as my adviser along with my Lodge Officers and Chapter Officers.

Upcoming events include Lodge Kickoff which is free to all paid due’s members, LECM activities at Camp Tracy starting Aug 22nd and follow every month, Section Conclave is in September this year and will be held at Camp Bartlett and we hope to see you all there.

With the changes in Scouting in our council I strongly encourage you to seek out a troop or crew to participate in and join. Our Lodge has multiple Troops started and ready for youth and adult leadership. I encourage you all to continue your adventure in Scouting and encourage your friends also to continue. The opportunities that the Boy Scouts of America provides are unique, valuable and have made me who I am.

I strongly encourage and ask you to check our webpage along with social media, Facebook and emails for future announcements and additional information on events.

Thank you for all of your support and I know we will make this the best year with your support and activity.

Yours in Brotherhood,

Coleman Hunsaker

2019-2020 El-Ku-Ta Lodge Chief



I am extremely honored and humbled to serve as the Elkuta Lodge Adviser in the Order of the Arrow.

There is no greater honor to me than being part of this Honor Society in the Boy Scouts of America, the Order of the Arrow. There is no better program, a boy-led program, to give leadership and character building opportunities for our young men.

In the spirit of clear expectation and communication for myself and others, I would like to share few things with you: Please read the Mission, Purpose, and Vision for the Order of the Arrow.

My vision:
To enable and empower young men to have confidence in leadership opportunities, build character, to be better qualified young men, missionaries, military men, husbands, and fathers who actively engage themselves in their communities and contribute to society;
To have a group of trained adult leaders who have caught the vision of the BSA/OA program and take it to the young men with enthusiasm and commitment to help them to become better young men;
To instill commitment, accountability, and responsibility;
To enable the excitement of the great outdoors and personal talent.

We will: Create fine young men who will be contributing citizens in their communities.  Missionaries and ambassadors of God.  Good husbands who will stand proud as they embrace their eternal covenants.  Strong fathers who are willing to be great examples to their children.  Advisers who WILL make a difference!!!!!!
