June 1st, 2016 is an exciting day for Achpateuny Lodge! I would like to congratulate Wilson Zhang, Kenny Aranas, and Byron Cheung for a job well done during their time as Lodge Officers. Their years of service will not be forgotten as Achpateuny moves on into the Second Century of Service!
Speaking of the future, I would also like to congratulate and formally welcome our 2016-2017 Lodge Officers, whose terms begin today. This year's Lodge Chief is Joshua LaBenne, from the Shaonaxan Chapter and the new Lodge Vice Chief is Leland "Glenn" Jones, also from Shaonaxan Chapter. Under their leadership I am certain Achpateuny Lodge will continue to be among the best Lodges in the Order of the Arrow.
Additionally, I would like to thank Mr. David Strebler for his years of service to the Lodge as the Lodge Adviser. Under his guidance the Lodge thrived and it is my hope, as the new Lodge Adviser for Achpateuny Lodge that I can lead the Lodge into the NEXT Century of Service and build upon the legacy left by Wilson and his team, and Mr. David Strebler, as well as all the past Chiefs and Advisers of our Lodge.
Until our Paths Cross Once Again,
Macheu Nallih Achpussin Alloquepi
Achpateuny Lodge Adviser
