Ocean View Lodge #143 is proud to announce the open recruitment period for applicants to be chosen as our Lodge’s delegate to the current session of the UN Pilgrimage. The UN Pilgrimage is a two week all-expense-paid tour in July of historical sites back east in Philadelphia or Ottawa, Canada which includes a week long stay in the world renowned city of New York. Here delegates mingle with 150 or more students from across the United States and several countries of the world, exchanging views on global issues. Students will tour the United Nations building and meet with staff and UN officials. All delegates will also be given a topic that they will analyze in a 5 minute speech to be presented in a competition. Monetary prizes will be given for those judged the best.
Last month we packed the Cafe Society (Harpo’s) and enjoyed lively discussion about the future of the lodge. We focused first on what we already do well and how to do more of it. Then we shared ideas of what HMB-IOOF could be it it was ideal for each of us.
