Dare To Rebuild

The impact of the Dixie Fire’s damage to Camp Fleischmann was clearly evident when a team of Camp Fleischmann staff and volunteers visited camp recently.  The team’s effort focused on putting away program items, securing the warehouse and gathering left behind tents, tipis and other undamaged items.  Hard work but done with love. Lots more to do. With the winter weather coming camp activity will stop until Spring. Dan Deakin, one of the Camp Directors is pictured in burned out tree. 

Several committees will be organized regarding the rebuilding of Camp Fleischmann, interested in serving?  Send us an email at info@nevadabsa.org and mention “CF rebuilding committee” in the subject line.

Tannu Lodge Arrowmen past and present gathered this past weekend to celebrate the lodge’s 75-year history at the annual Pronghorn Gathering held at Senator Harry Reid Readiness and Training Center.  Lodge members were able to tour the National Guard facility, attend trainings and enjoy fellowship. Saturday evening a banquet was held and we were able to hear from the current Western Region Chief, Dakota Morosi and many past Tannu Lodge Chiefs.  New officers were elected for 2022. Lodge Chief, Dylan Cooley, Vice Chief, Gracian May and Secretary/Treasurer, Addison Johnson will lead the Lodge to the next level in the coming year.  We were also able to honor a few individuals for their service to the Lodge. Arrowman of the Year Austin Galleron, Advisor of the Year Bob Colbert, Founder’s Award recipients Keegan Colbert and Tammy Rodeback and the Tannu Lodge Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Rich Whitney.
