2018 NOAC AT INDIANA UNIVERSITY

The National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) is the premier event of the Order of the Arrow, and is Scouting’s 2nd largest national event. In 2018, Arrowmen from across our nation will gather from July 30 to August 4 at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. To learn more about NOAC, read our latest newsletter here. If you are interested in joining the Lodge’s NOAC contingent for this exciting adventure, be sure to download our deposit form and follow the directions. Unfortunately, due to expected high interest coupled with capacity constraints at Indiana University, National will be instituting a quota for the 2018 NOAC and enforcing a strict 3:1 youth-to-adult ratio.

RECENT CHAPTER MERGER

The Crossroads of America Council re-structured the Districts earlier this year. During the re-structuring, the Iron Horse District and Old Trail District merged to become the Bear Creek District. In an effort to follow our Council’s lead, the Lodge decided to merge the Macquissin (MCQ) Chapter and Seke Macque (SKM) Chapter. With the merger of the two Chapters comes a new Chapter name and totem and, while the Chapter’s totem is still being determined, the two Chapters have reached an agreement on their Chapter’s name. The new Chapter is called Wapinachi (WCH). Visit the Chapter’s page for more information on leadership, meeting times, etc.

NEW ARROWMAN EXCELLENCE AWARD

In an effort to increase participation among our newest members and, ultimately, increase their Brotherhood conversion rate, the Lodge’s Membership & Brotherhood Committee has recently developed the New Arrowman Excellence Award. By simply completing a handful of requirements, new Arrowmen will receive recognition at the annual Lodge Banquet in November. To learn more about the requirements, download the form and email membership@jaccostownelodge.org  with any questions.
