Ever wonder the impact that cheerful service can bring to local communities? Fellow brothers from El-Ku-Ta Lodge of the Great Salt Lake Council can tell you! It started in early December when El-Ku-Ta Associate Lodge Adviser Dave Bresnahan was attending a local medical relief core event within his community. The purpose of the event was to administer vaccination shots at a local relief shelter to the homeless population within the Great Salt Lake City area and build hygiene kits for all who came to receive a vaccination.
There is nothing that an Arrowman enjoys more than patch collecting. That is why the leadership of Kittan Lodge of the Twin Rivers Council decided to collect with a purpose. Every year, Kittan Lodge releases lodge flaps in support of a local charity with all proceeds donated as well as more awareness raised. With these flaps, Kittan Lodge has been able to raise thousands of dollars for local charities. Kittan Lodge Chief Matt Kusche shared the effect that these flaps have made on the charities they support.
