New Lodge Adviser Announced!

Ku-Ni-Eh Lodge Members,

It is with mixed emotion to share that Jason Wolz will be stepping down as the Lodge Adviser of Ku-Ni-Eh Lodge.  Jason has served with distinction for the past four years, in which he provided a steady hand in navigating through the COVID-19 pandemic and prepared for our centennial celebration.  Please join me in thanking Jason for his servant leadership to the Order of the Arrow in Dan Beard Council!

It is my honor to announce that Jack Ball will serve as the next Lodge Adviser of Ku-Ni-Eh Lodge.  Jack is no stranger to the Lodge or to Scouting.  An Eagle Scout and Vigil Honor member, Jack has served Scouting through a variety of leadership roles including Cubmaster, Chapter Adviser and Troop Committee Chair.  Jack is the outgoing Council Training Chair for Dan Beard Council, and also serves as an Assistant Council Commissioner.  Jack and his wife are proud parents of three terrific sons, one of which is an Eagle Scout and Vigil Honor member of our Order.  I know that Jack will do well in supporting our youth officers and building upon the rich traditions of Ku-Ni-Eh Lodge.

The formal transition will occur in conjunction with the officer elections at next month’s fall fellowship.  Please join me in thanking and congratulating Jason and Jack!
