troopRepThe Troop Rep Program as defined by National.
Because it is a leadership position, the Troop Rep needs to be approved by the Lodge and applications will be taken whenever your troop feels like they want one. Each troop should have one so that there can be a communication link between the lodge and the troops. We, the lodge, feels that it is necessary for each Troop Rep be able to attend atleast 50% of the LECs and most of the other lodge events.

Did you like your ordeal? Do you want to be "a friend" to the next lodge chief? Well, The Ho-De-No-Sau-Nee Lodge Elangomat Program is the place to be!  It is a program that is taken seriously and it is necessary for the future of the lodge.  Lodge members of any age can volunteer and be one.  There is a training prior to be sent out into the ordeal, plus all elangomats get treated like a member.

ceremoniesAnother major part of the ordeal weekend is the ceremonies team. They are incharge of what you see when you become a new member. The team is always looking for people to help them. Anyone can join the team.
