The Order of the Arrow, Nanuk Lodge is currently accepting nominations for Arrowmen to be elevated to the Vigil Honor. The Vigil selection committee will meet March 20. As someone who is a leader in scouting, we know that you have been able to observe our various members in your own activities on the Council and District level, as well as the Lodge and Chapter level. The certain individuals we are in search for should fit the following:
Alertness to the needs of others is the mark of the Vigil Honor. The Vigil Honor is a high mark of distinction and recognition reserved for those Arrowmen who, by reason of exceptional service, personal effort, and unselfish interest, have made distinguished contributions beyond the immediate responsibilities of their position or office to one or more of the following: their Lodge, the Order of the Arrow, Scouting, or their Scout camp. Under no circumstances should tenure in Scouting or the Order of the Arrow be considered as reason enough for a Vigil Honor recommendation. One final note on nominating someone for the Vigil Honor is to consider not only what they have done, but what they will continue to do in the future. They must:
Have held the Brotherhood Honor for at least 2 years on the selection date
Be a registered Scout/Scouter
Be in good standing with the Lodge
When making a nomination please use the attached form. If that is not possible you must include their name, age, scout unit, and the reasons for your nomination. Also, please keep in mind that this is not limited to youth. Adults are also honored in the same way (in the OA an adult is 21 rather than 18).
This year we celebrate the centennial of our good Order and the outstanding contributions it has made to the Boy Scouts of America and 78 years our lodge has contributed to the scouting program in our council. The National OA Committee launched the “Arrowmen Service Award”, a once in a century award that each member has the opportunity to earn. The lodge must host a “Lodge 100th Anniversary Event” which would count towards one of the requirements to earn the award. The award is a rectangular patch that is placed on the top of your OA sash. One of the very few patches that can be affixed on your sash.

The goal of our Anniversary event is to complete 100 service projects council wide, as well as take some time to participate in fellowship and rededicate ourselves to the principles of our order through a special ceremony.
