A Look Back – The Silver Fawn

A Look Back

Five years ago I wrote about a short-lived woman’s alternative to the Silver Beaver.

Most of you know about the Silver Beaver, the highest Council-Level Award for “distinguished service to young people within a BSA local council.” But did you know about the Silver Fawn.

Silver Fawn Award circa 1973

“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.” – G.K. Chesterton

Save The Date – November 23, 2013 18th Annual Trade-O-Ree


While it is still 11 months away, please save Saturday November 23, 2013 as the date for the 18th Annual Shu Shu Gah Lodge Trade-O-Ree.

The reservations have been made for both the 2013 TOR and the Indian Seminar in Camp Alpine. The Indian Seminar will take place the weekend of November 2-24, 2013.

With the consolidation of the 5 GNYC Lodges scheduled to take place in April 2013, it is not clear yet if the Trade-O-Ree will be hosted by Shu Shu Gah Chapter or if it will be hosted by the currently un-named consolidated GNYC OA Lodge.

Watch this space for further information.
