Tracking Your Arrowman Service Award Progress

The Arrowman Service Award is a unique award that any arrowman can earn.  The purpose of the Arrowman Service Award (ASA) is to encourage Arrowmen to recommit themselves to the ideals of the Order, increase their levelof service to thier local unit and council, and participate in the 100th anniversary celebration of the OA.  The award has three categories of criteria with various requirements that Arrowmen can complete.  These include components on personal growth, service to Scouting, and participation in the centennial celebration.  The award period is only from July 16, 2014 through December 31, 2015.

The recognition is a patch that can be worn on the sash above the arrowhead or top Brotherhood bar.  The Lodge Executive Committee has authorized the lodge to cover the cost of the patch for each arrowman in good standing who earns the Arrowmen Service Award.  One additional patch may be purchased from the lodge for a fee.  

There are two ways you can track and submit your progress toward this award:

NOAC 2015 Update!

Things are really starting to take shape for NOAC! Vans are booked, we're locked in for Cedar Point, we locked in for a trip to the Great Lakes Science Museum in Downtown Cleveland and are looking at a hotel not too far away from there.

So I wanted to update you on the various fundraisers we have going on to help support the NOAC Contingent, please support these events if you are able. I will try to keep reminding you folks of these events as they get closer. We are still working to book a few others to help pad the fund as much as possible. If you know of any business that is willing to setup a fundraiser in your area please reach out to Herb Dodds or Mrs. Riggio with as much detail as possible.

  • Thursday, March 19, 6-9pm, The Pop Shop in Collingswood www.thepopshopusa.com
  • Tuesday, April 28, 5-9 YoGo night at Millville YoGo
  • Wednesday, May 20, 5-8 Pizza Hut Night at Vineland Pizza Hut
  • Friday, June 26, 7pm Scout Night at the Riversharks (See Flyer Below)
  • Saturday, June 27th, 9a-5p Arrowtour & Trade O Ree @ Rowan Resource Center

The NOAC Patches are in and the Black Border Traders will be available for purchase at the cost of $4 each. Each patch sold puts money back into the NOAC account so you are really helping yourself. You will be able to purchase these patches at the Rowan and Riggins Scout Shops and at Roosevelt during summer camp. They will also be available during all OA events. Each delegate will receive six silver border patches at a later time closer to the departure of the event. We want these to be the talk of NOAC!

Speaking of Arrowtour we will need everyone's help with that event as we are hosting a Trade O Ree alongside it. These two events are going to really spotlight our Lodge and Council, it will be a great opportunity to showcase what the order is about and what we have to offer in this council.
