Calling OA Youth

For all OA youth members who reside within the confines of Lewis and Clark District:

There are Chapter leadership possibilities that are still open to you as youth members. These must be filled in order to provide cheerful service to your troops, your district, your lodge and yourself.

The entire Chapter meets at District Roundtable on the 2nd Thursday of the month.

Each unit has an OA representative who is expected to attend these meetings, and the general OA membership is also welcome.  The purpose of attendance is to provide assistance in building the chapter, the skills, the ceremonies for crossovers and ordeals.

This large Chapter has to meet the needs of its troops, its members, as well as the Cub Scouts and Webelos.  The younger scouts look up to the Arrowman. The Arrowman is a Scout whose OA pocket flap and white sash with red arrow tell others “I am a member of the Brotherhood of Cheerful Service. “

We are one chapter, not Three. We are one chapter, its name is Wakina Tonka.
