Come out if you can and pitch in.

Your Council of Chiefs has been hard at work planning for the 2015 Section Conclave. This year, we’ll be continuing the open, midway-based model of Conclave, as we’ve done the past few years. This year, as a change, we’re going to work with a Conclave Vice Chief model to provide administrative leadership to the Conclave.
The Conclave is an annual gathering of all the Lodges in our section for a weekend of fun and learning.
Registration information will be available soon so keep watching here for updates.

The cost is $38.00 if paid by 5/1/2015, $45.00 if paid between 5/1/2015 and 5/14/2015 and $50.00 if paid at the door.

More information about ArrowTour 2015 can be found HERE.
Woodland Trails is easily accessible from Interstate 70 and located at 265 Gapser Somers Road, Camden, OH.

The Arrowman Service Award









The Arrowman Service Award is an OA patch you can wear on your sash.
2015 is the Order of the Arrow’s 100th anniversary, and every good centennial celebration needs a patch to match.  If you ask me, the OA really knocked its 100th anniversary patch out of the park. It’s the Arrowman Service Award, a patch youth and adult members of the Order of the Arrow can earn and wear on their OA sash.
The goal is to encourage Arrowmen to recommit themselves to the OA, increase their level of service and participate in the OA’s wide-ranging centennial celebrations. Along with patches issued during the OA’s 50th and 60th anniversaries, this patch is one of just three patches the Order of the Arrow has authorized to be worn on the sash. Yes, on the sash itself. The award may be worn only on the traditional OA sash. You’ll want to sew it so its lower edge sits one-half inch above the upper Brotherhood bar. 
Speaking of, being a Brotherhood member or attaining Brotherhood membership in the OA is one of the primary requirements, though there is an exception for Arrowmen inducted as Ordeal members after Jan. 1, 2015. 
There’s no limit to the number of Arrowman Service Awards that can be given per lodge, provided the lodge’s advisor and staff advisor/Scout executive approve each candidate’s completed requirements.
Arrowmen can work on the requirements from July 16, 2014, until Dec. 31, 2015.

We Would Like To Make A Correction

At the Lodge Appreciation Banquet we handed out certificates to those who have served the Lodge during the previous year. Occasionally we make an error during those presentations.

One of the certificates was for service to the Lodge as the Adviser for the Health and Safety Committee.
While the certificate was given to another we must commend Mike Swaney who did all of the actual work in this department during the year.

We humbly apologize to Mike for this wrongdoing.
