Congratulations to our newly elected OA Candidates! Mason, Mitchell, Trevor, Cody, Garrett, Rayaan, Brody, Zach, Aayan, Drew, & Cole. Order of the Arrow is Scouting’s National Honor Society. Scouts must be at least Frist Class with 15 nights camping, 5 of which must come from a long term campout, and then be elected by at least 50% of their peers. Getting elected and becoming a candidate allows these scouts to officially join the OA by completing their Ordeal at an induction weekend and becoming a member of the Egwa Tawa Dee Lodge. Congratulations again and we look forward to you representing the troop within the Lodge and carrying on the Troop 2319’s Tradition of supporting and OA and it’s mission of performing cheerful service to others!
I’d like to present OA Kennesaw’s newest Vigil Honor recipients, Rudi Shumpert (T2319) & Robert Carlin (T2319)! They completed their Vigil Honor Induction this past weekend. Less than 2% of arrowmen are selected to receive the Vigil Honor each year. Please help me in congratulating them both on this amazing honor!
Huge congratulations go out to: Michael Carlin Steve Carlin Cavin Davis Xan Mihill For completing their induction into the Order of the Arrow this past weekend. For those who don’t know, the Order of the Arrow is Scouting’s National Honor Society. The induction weekend can be a lot of hard work for candidates, but everyone made it through and had a great time! Check out the full album here!
On behalf of Egwa Tawa Dee Lodge of the Order of the Arrow, I want to congratulate Troop 2319 on having earned the Order of the Arrow Unit of Excellence Award for 2019. This is a unique and distinctive honor as less than 1% of all the troops, crews and ships in the BSA earn this award each year. Within our Lodge the award has only been presented six times since 2012. Only two other units earned the award for 2019. Thank you to all the OA Youth and Adults who helped make this possible by attending OA Functions, planning troop events so they don’t overlap with the Lodge schedule, and overall just proving that Troop 2319 doesn’t just claim to support the Order of the Arrow, it actually stands behind it! Receiving the OA Unit of Excellence is a great honor from the National Honor Society of Scouting. For more information about the OA Unit of Excellence, you can check out OA-BSA.org. Again thank you to everyone who helped Troop 2319 be the only troop in the district to earn this award and one of three in the council to received it for 2019. Congratulations!!
Troop 2319 would like to congratulate Jeremy A. on completing his Ordeal this past weekend to become a member in the Order of the Arrow. Next time you see him, be sure to congratulate him! Troop 2319 also had numerous other members attend the Induction this past weekend who helped out from serving as Elangomats, to Ceremony Support, to Camp Staff, and Service Project Volunteers. Thank you to all who attended, together we helped the OA Lodge complete over 450 hours of service for Bert Adams Scout Camp. With all the work that was completed this past weekend, we have cut down the amount of work for the Bert Adams Rangers by nearly a month!
