Lodge Banquet

Attention Arrowmen!

How many of you have been to an official Order of the Arrow centennial event? None of you? Well now is your chance! March 27-29 is the Spring Fellowship, Tecumseh Lodge’s first centennial event. There is an opportunity to take your brotherhood, and experience what it was like to be an Arrowman in 1915.

For those of you who didn’t know, there is a new brotherhood ceremony. We will be having competitions amongst the chapters to see who can perform it the best. We will also have signaling, tomahawk throwing, and a OA history exhibit. Discussions about OA High Adventure will be held after lunch, as well as a “training” for OA troop representative. Euchre tournaments will be going all night long, as well as 1915 Scout, Tenderfoot, 2nd class competitions in the morning. Let’s see if you have what it takes to be a Scout in 1915!
Black powder shooting will take place after camp clean up on Sunday.

Come join us for a Blast From the Past at wonderful Camp Lazarus, and knock off a requirement or two for the Arrowman Service Award.

On Saturday evening we will also be holding our annual Lodge Banquet. While the entire weekend is open just to OA members, the Banquet is open to anyone, so bring your family.

The cost is just $25.00 for the entire weekend or $15.00 if you just want to attend the Banquet, but you can save $5.00 per preson by pre-registering by March 22nd bringing the cost to just $20.00 for the weekend and $10.00 for the Banquet.

On-line registration for this event has closed.
If you still wish to attend you can register in person when you arrive at the camp.

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.

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.
