For Failing to Prepare, is Preparing to Fail

Brother Benjamin Franklin
Preparedness and survival are not just a fad – they are a mindset from our not so distant past.  All we are doing is trying to make up for the time lost when we started relying on technology and government for our daily needs.  Let’s use today’s technology and blend with the skills of the past to achieve a greater level of preparedness.

"Pioneer Connect"

Here's something new! In an effort to reach out to all our Pioneer Brothers everywhere, we will start our "Pioneer Connect" program. We have lost track of many of our Brothers due to distance or time and now is the time to re-connect! All our Brothers are listed below. If the box that they appear in is white then someone needs to reach out to see how they're doing. Please look through the names and fill out one of the forms below to get their contact information. Once I receive a request I will change the box to yellow to signify that someone is contacting them. Once I receive another form with a record of contact, then the box goes to green. If you see a red box - that's not good. Someone will need to dig deeper to find our Brother. So start today and pick a name - reach out to see they're doing, update their contact information, and if they need anything from us. Invite them back to Lodge if they're a "rusty nail".  Click here for our Brothers!
