Registered members in good standing in the BSA, the local council and their Order of the Arrow lodge will be able to commemorate our organization’s 100th anniversary by working to complete the Arrowman Service Award (ASA). The purpose of the ASA is to encourage Arrowmen to recommit themselves to the ideals of the Order, increase their level of service to their unit and council and participate in the 100th anniversary celebration of the OA. The award will have 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. Arrowmen can work on the requirements till December 31, 2015. This award can be earned by all Lodge members and they do not need to attend NOAC 2015. The Arrowman Service Award is to be sewn with its lower edge one-half inch above the upper Brotherhood bar. Patches will be purchased through the lodge for $2.50 each.
If the scouts have any questions about the award they may contact Daniel Holtzberg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If any adults have any questions about this award they may contact Marc Holtzberg at email@example.com
