A good form of government may hold the rotten materials together for some time, but beyond a certain pitch, even the best constitution will be ineffectual, and slavery must ensue.” —John Witherspoon (1776)

Ktemaque Lodge #15 2015 OA Service Grant Flap S70

Ktemaque Lodge #15 won an OA Service Grant in 2015 which was used on a Mountain Biking Program.

Ktemaque Lodge received $4,300 to provide a mountain biking trail and related equipment for the Curtis S. Read Scout Reservation. Matched with lodge funds, our council was able to launch a mountain biking program in record time. This summer, campers at Read were able to enjoy 20 bikes and gear, featuring red OA branded water bottles, after our brothers toiled arduously in May during our Ordeal Weekend constructing the required bike trails

One of the ways they raised funds was through a flap and odd shape dangle to support the program.
