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!!
