The Order of the Arrow provides service to Units, Councils and their Community. The Service Committee works to coordinate efforts of our members in serving the Council, primarily by serving our council camps and our Community, primarily through the One Day of Service.
We provide a great deal of service through our Ordeals and our monthly Service Day program. We also take responsibility for maintaining the Pedro Trail and many Lodge members are involved in staffing the Thomas D. Trainor Scout Museum at D-A Scout Ranch.
Chapters perform community service throughout the year and our Lodge, like many in the Central Region, participates annually in the One Day of Service program.
Reporting Service Hours
The lodge "Service Report" captures the details and hours for service to our camps and community.
- This is at the highest level for all persons participating.
- This form and detail is used to calculate lodge/chapter performance for Honor status.
- This form is the basis for any service feather recognition.
- This form goes to the Service Committee Chairman who:
- approves the service report;
- logs the service hours reported into a summary matrix for the lodge;
- delivers the approved and logged report to the awards committee.
Our individual 'Leadership in Service Award" form tracks an individual's service/hours toward this award.
- This form cannot be used to report for lodge/chapter service hour reporting.
- When completed, the arrowman gives it to the Awards (Recognition) Committee chair for processing.
- The award applicant should retain a copy of the submitted form for their records.
