Order of the Arrow Elections
Last week, our troop was honored to have members of the Order of the Arrow's local lodge, Lenapehoking IX, facilitate the OA elections for our youth membership. The Order of the Arrow, is the National Honor Society for the Boy Scouts of America. With great pride, Gabe L, Lucas D, Max L, Tanish T and Nicholas S were nominated to attend one of three induction weekends in the coming months, as their peers believed that they all best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. We are proud of you men!.
