OA Awards for Units
Walamootkin Lodge is excited to bring back three awards from our history. These awards will acknowledge units based on their participation. Units will track their camping, service and spirit (attendance of Arrowmen at lodge events) through the year and turn in a form to the lodge. A plaque for each award will be hung in the Blue Mountain Council Service Center with the unit’s information to recognize them who has the most of each award total.
In 2020 we will have our first submission for these awards from the 2019 year. The forms for submission have been mailed out to the unit leader on record and will be found on our website, with the deadline date of January 31st at 5pm, at www.bmcbsa.org/oa Your OA Rep and Assistant Scoutmaster for the OA can track your unit’s participation. Our selection committee looks forward to your submissions.
