Leadership Weekend, Traveling Around the State

A camping we will go!

To the members of the Organization of Triangles and its supporters:

I can officially say it’s summer! This is my favorite season, with all the sun and warm weather along with the great food, because we all know how much I enjoy my southern barbecue.

In March, I attended Royal Arch. I wore red, which is my favorite color, to show support of their colors. Royal Arch was an amazing experience and we had a little share in laughs when I was called up to speak as I just finished putting a whole fork full of salad in my mouth. It was a joy to see Mr. Roche, one of Triangle’s greatest supporters, go in as Most Excellent Grand High Priest. His mission this term is to have as many Royal Arch members attend as many Masonic Youth events as possible. I believe this is amazing of him to do and I encourage you all to invite Royal Arch members to your events.

Some things I have been up to since my last post were attending Grand Assembly in April, where we said goodbye to Danielle with her beautiful heart song and welcomed in the magic with Sam Miller. I can say I was excited since Sam and I have been friends for years and I’m excited for her as she embarks on this journey and be there to help and support her in any way I can.

Then as we sprung into May I attended Grand Lodge. This one is the big one in my opinion and I was very excited! Also, it was my first car ride with Mrs. Turri and I enjoyed the company. There I spread my message about my boots and my charity, but I also spoke about how even though I lost my Dad at a young age I have gained so many through my experience in Triangle. I wanted to let the members of Grand Lodge know how much they truly mean to us. I thank them for all their continued support and showing me the love a father does.

Along with summer comes another favorite activity of mine which is camping. Speaking of camping, that is the theme for our next District convention! This is on Long Island and is on June 4th, I’m hoping I will see you all there.

Speaking of Camping, I hope you all are getting excited for Leadership Weekend that is coming up (July 8th-July 10th)! I know the Junior Advisors have been hard at work planning this event and are excited to share what they have for you! I know I will be there with plenty of bug spray and ready for some fun in the woods! Oh, and I can’t forget my boots!

I hope you all have a wonderful and safe summer and enjoy the upcoming holidays of Memorial Day and 4th of July!

In Triangle love,

Alison Wright

Leadership Weekend

What to pack for Leadership Weekend 2014

To the members of the Organization of Triangles,

Happy summer! I hope you are all enjoying your first few weeks of your vacation. Congratulations to any of you who might have graduated. I hope you’re as excited as I am for Leadership Weekend 2014! Because of the dedication of your Junior Advisors and our State Director, this weekend will be one for the history books! Get ready for a Winter Wonderland! I have made up a packing list for you all to try and go by. While packing, keep in mind that we will only be there for three days and to not over pack. You will be roomed with three other girls in a cabin that has a bunk bed and a queen-sized bed. There is also a night table, a heater, and electricity in each cabin.

Obviously, this is not everything you can bring to LW, but it is a good start:

  • Bedding (sheets, sleeping bag, pillows)
  • Bath towel/wash cloth
  • Plastic bag to pack wet towels and bathing suits for the ride home
  • Shampoo/conditioner/body wash
  • Small make up bag to bring your toiletries to the bathroom in
  • Deodorant/toothpaste/toothbrush/any medications/other toiletries
  • Hair brush/hair ties
  • Flip-flops for the shower
  • Cover up (for the Water Park and going back and forth to shower!)
  • Beach towel for Water Park
  • Flip-flops/water shoes for waterpark
  • 3 different outfits (all though we might just need two outfits, you might want to have another outfit to change into after the Water Park!)
  • Sweatshirt, sweatpants, jeans (it can get chilly!)
  • Pajamas & slippers to walk to the bathroom in
  • Bathing suits (some girls like to go into the lake at the campsite during free time, so be sure to have another to change into in case it doesn’t dry in time!)
  • Sneakers/socks
  • Sunscreen/bug spray
  • Extra spending money (lunch for Water Park, Triangle Grams, gift shop)

Please feel free to ask your Junior Advisor any questions you might have concerning Leadership Weekend.

I’m looking forward to a great weekend and making many memories with all of you!
