Posted on Feb 23 2015 - 3:06pm

Monday, March 16, 2015, Troop 928 will be holding elections to nominate (elect) youth members into the OA (Order of the Arrow). The OA is Scouting’s National Honor Society, many of you first came into contact with the OA when you crossed over from Webelos to Boy Scouts. They are the youth who were dressed in the native American regalia and ran the crossover ceremony.

The boys from the troop listed on the troop ballot had to meet certain eligibility requirements, as a member of the troop you have the opportunity to vote for those you feel should be nominated to become a member of the OA. You should take into consideration the following questions as you think about whom to nominate (elect) to join Scouting’s National Honor Society:

• Who among this Troop is a friend to all?
• Who is helpful when others need a hand?
• Who is cheerful when he has tiresome jobs to do?
• Who would you wish to go camping with?
• Who regularly attends meetings of the Troop, including campouts and other service projects?
• Who among them sets the example by living the Scout Oath and Law in his everyday life?
• Who can you depend on?
• Who do you feel is worthy to be included as a member of this special order?

A team of OA officials will be at the meeting to conduct the election and tabulate the results.

It is important that all of you attend this meeting so that you can vote for the candidates you feel are worthy.

At least half of the registered active unit members must be present to hold an election.
