Upon finding this article, you may be asking yourself, “Why is there a penguin in that logo?” The answer: “That’s Waddles, of course!” Waddles the penguin has been the mascot of Section C-3A for years. From countless conclaves, lodge events, and even the Section Officer Seminar at Florida Sea Base, Waddles might as well be a section officer himself.
After the national webinar, Section C-3A has been leading the change in improving their lodge’s thrive metrics. By visiting their lodges in what they call “Dynamic LEC” visits, the section officers are able to effectively educate their lodges on what needs to be improved for the performance measurement program, and how they can improve every aspect of their program.
Now of course, Section C-3A is not all business. They have lots of fun at their Council of Chiefs meetings, Red Arrow Rally (conclave), and at their upcoming ACT Conference in April. At their Section Conclave in September, C-3A traveled back in time to the wild west where arrowmen had lots of fun with AIA crafts/dances, a dunk tank, hatchet throwing lessons, and a keynote address from National Vice Chief Eric Harrison.
