You will be able to choose between Brisket, Chicken or Jackfruit (vegan) during registration.

DUE$ for 2023 Now Due

It’s that time of year that dues for the new Lodge year are due. 

The Lodge Executive Committee (LEC) elected to return to the pre-COVID dues amount of $15 for 2023.

There are two ways to pay your 2023 dues; pay them online (see link below) or pay them at the Council Service Center. You will not be able to pay your dues through your unit any longer since units are using Scoutbook for recharter and there are no previsions for collecting lodge dues.

Shortly after paying your dues, within two weeks, you can go into your member portal and print your new 2023 ID card. Don’t have a member portal? Contact Danny Carman at and he can help with setting that up.

Winter Induction

Even though it was a little wet, the induction weekend was a success. We welcomed 7 new Ordeal members and had 10 members seal their membership by going through their Brotherhood induction. 

Congratulations to all those that were inducted into PAPAGO lodge!
