Our lodge now serves a council of 36,000 youth and volunteers across 64 counties in Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, and Tennessee. We have a great opportunity to positively influence our new, larger Scouting community with our Brotherhood of Cheerful Service. Nguttitehen, pronounced ‘goo‐te ‐tay‐in’, is Lenni Lenape meaning ‘to be of one heart and mind’. This represents the way we have worked together to become one lodge, as well as, the way we will strive together as Brothers to become the best Lodge in the country.

The new Lodge will support both Chapters and Tribes as part of its Organization

Gone Home – George Jennings

gonehome Some sad tidings to pass along at the start of this new year; regular Contributor of Images and friend George Jennings from Wappingers Falls, NY and most recently Nacha Nimat Lodge #86, has Gone Home.

It is with a heavy heart that we share with the loss of our wonderful husband and father, George P. Jennings.
On Thursday, George was rushed to Vassar Brothers Medical Center after suffering a hemorrhagic stroke. The intracerebral hemorrhage involved major areas of the brain and it was impossible to reverse the damage. He ultimately passed away on Monday, December 31, at 4:50 PM after spending several days surrounded by his loving friends and family.
We are thankful that George didn’t suffer and know that he was welcomed into the Kingdom of Heaven to join Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and those who passed before him.
An obituary and information on calling hours/memorial service will be available shortly at the Straub, Catalano & Halvey Funeral Home website and the Poughkeepsie Journal.

…Until we meet again.

“May the father of all mercies scatter light, and not darkness, upon our paths.” –George Washington
