cess with tremendous attendance and participation. Welcome to those of you who completed your ordeal and thank you to those who have sealed their brotherhood. The events were well run and fun was had by all. We have a Dixie theme so start thinking about how we can best use that theme to demonstrate Santee spirit. April 15-17 at Camp Daniel Boone will be our opportunity to let the world know that Santee is back!

Fall Fellowship Recap First I want to say great job Ordeals and Brotherhoods. I really like how the 6-Pack turn out (we repainted the insides). Mr. Haines and his crew fixed up the benches in the Pre-Ordeal Ring. The food was very good, and the games went okay. Saturday night was the most epic thing to happen at a fellowship. We had shaving cream pie throw, but people kept dropping them, so we
went around and hit people in the face. We popped balloons with darts and carved a pumpkin in half. It took a while to clean up but it was worth it. I want to thank ALL of the people who helped out; the cooks, Mr. Cullum, Mr. Spangler, Mr. Miller, Travis Todd, Mr. Haines, and Mr. McIlrath. Sorry if I missed anybody. We had super fun and it was a
blast! Can't wait for Winter Banquet and Spring Fellowship! Also, thanks to Mr. Spangler for teaching about Santee Lodge 116 patches! And remember only Santee Lodge 116 can bring on a great fellowship! Yours in Brotherhood, Timothy Hellaby II Fall Fellowship Chairman

Chapter Reports: Atakwa- We are still hoping to improve attendance at Chapter Meetings. So far we have improved in getting a few more troops involved compared to last year but numbers are still down and much improvement is needed. Chapter meetings are held on every second Thursday at Highland Park Methodist Church at 7 PM. Look for our unofficial group on Facebook. Currently, we are in the process of getting service projects set up. Even though we missed participating the October 16 Day of Service, we will still get a date set up to help the local fire department. Thank you all, Brian Tsai Atakwa Chapter Chief
