OA Unit of Excellence Awards

The Order of the Arrow Unit of Excellence Award seeks to identify those units, and the leaders within them, who excel at incorporating the OA into their annual planning. This award is intended to provide a tool for lodges to recognize, incentivize, and operationalize unit-level participation in Order of the Arrow programs. Units and Leaders completing the requirements are awarded recognition on both the National (ribbon / patch) and local (Lodge recognition) level. Details about the award can be found HERE. For further information contact Lodge Chief Gregory Yentz at lodge237@gmail.com.

Spring Ordeal

Spring Ordeal was a complete success. There were over 200 members by the end of the weekend. I don’t think I have ever seen a larger closing circle. Many hours of service were given to camp. We had very successful ceremonies for some of our first time ceremonialists. There were some delays, but nothing major. The weather was overcast and rainy but that did mean that the sun wasn’t beating down during our cheerful service, which many people mentioned as a rose at the end of the weekend. Section Conference is coming up and Summer Pow-Wow is right after that. WWW
