The PIKE House
2018 International Work Day
Registration for the 2018 International Work Day has been a tremendous success with 120 chapters and colonies signed up to participate. March and April are traditionally Pike’s biggest months for Work Day with a majority of groups choosing this time to hold their events.
For those chapters who have already held their Work Day event, please return your Work Day Completion Form and Survey along with any before, during, or after photos that were taken, as soon as possible. Only groups that have returned their information will be eligible for the Work Day plaque and awards that will be presented this summer at the Convention in Richmond, VA.
