Chiefly Speaking


Thank you for all the service you've provided so far this season. All the Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Scouters that stay through Goose Pond and Camp Acahela benefit from your service. How amazing it is that our small acts of service can aid in the experiences of countless individuals that we may never meet. There will be many more opportunitiesĀ to serve throughout the rest of the year, including the Fall Ordeal, Harvest Fest, and Adopt-A-Highway, so do not hesitate to take the opportunity to serve. Recall our theme: "Paving the Way to 50!"; these acts of service to others lay the foundations for the next 24 years until our 50th anniversary.

Lodge Adviisor 

Come out to a Meeting , to one of our events and give us a try!

I dont think you will be dissapointed.

Remember the Order of the Arrow is a program designed for youth. Officers and Chairmen must be under the age of twenty-one for their entire term of office. The officers plan and conduct all meetings and events. Adults serve in advisory capacities only.

Hope to see you at one of our  remaining activities in 2017.
