2018 Vigil Honor Service Weekend

This two-day event on September 14-15, 2018 at Gerber Scout Reservation, will honor the 2018 Vigil Honor class of Nataepu Shohpe Lodge for their dedication to our lodge and to give back to them in service to our camp cheerfully.

The event will feature on Friday night a gathering of all Vigil Honor brothers in our lodge where we will undergo a Vigil rededication ceremony. This night will also feature the 2018 Vigil Ceremonies for our candidates. We ask that only Vigil Honor members of our Order attend this event Friday night. Check-in for Vigil members will begin at 7:00 PM at Earl Johnson Lodge. 

Saturday morning, we are inviting ALL members of our lodge, whether you are Ordeal, Brotherhood or Vigil. Check-in on Saturday morning will begin at 8:00 AM. The cost for this event will be $5 to cover the cost of food. Then starting at 9:30 AM we will begin camp-wide service projects to aid Gerber Scout Reservation with closing tasks and obligations. We will culminate the weekend at 3:00 PM with a banquet and dinner to properly recognize our 2018 Vigil Honor brothers.
