As posted Jan 15th, 2012 by John Pannell on his OA Images Blog, the Long Beach Area Council chartered the first new lodge not formed from a merger or consolidation in over forty years. Long Beach Area has long been home to the Tribe of Tahquitz, which will co-exist with the new lodge.
Over the weekend of May 18-20, 53 candidates passed their Ordeal at Camp Tahquitz. The youth membership elected officers and selected the name Puvunga for their lodge, translating to "the gathering place," with the porpoise as their totem. They also chose #32 as their lodge's number to match their council's number.
