Its not too late to register for Vigil Weekend. The weather if forecast to be clear and we have 8 new Vigils to honor and support during their induction.  We start a week from Friday, March 3, with a time of Fellowship at Camp Josepho. Please arrive before the road closes at 9pm. We will continue on Saturday, March 4 with more fellowship, service to camp, dinner and the Vigil Fellowship Circle. The circle will end in time to get everyone who must leave on the road by 8:30, but I encourage you to stay for the actual Vigil Induction.  They need your support and we need members to help.  It all will end on Sunday morning with breakfast and cleanup.

 

The Gate Code and Rules of the Road will be emailed to all registered participants next week.

Register Now!

As we move into 2017 and find new ways to make the OA program exciting for you, one of the programs we will be starting is the Order of the Arrow High Adventure (OAHA) scholarship program. If you don’t already know what OAHA is, linked below is a small flyer on what each of the bases has to offer. I have personally experienced great things about their programs and the life changing experiences they hold. I had a blast this past summer in the OA Summit Experience program and I have talked to many other arrowmen who have done other programs and they’re loved every second of it.

The lodge will be offering two $250 scholarships to the OAHA program of your choice. I highly suggest that you take this chance to apply as these programs is one of best the OA has to offer. I have the application attached. Once you have completed it, turn it in to your Chapter Chief or Chapter Adviser.

If you have any more questions at all, please contact any of the chapter or lodge advisers.  Also check out the OAHA website: http://adventure.oa-bsa.org/.
