The Nation Chief, Alex Call, visited Lodge 3, Nawakwa, today and gave us some words of wisdom. He spoke to todays Order of the Arrow (OA) Members about his experiences as a young OA member. He was just a 13 year old ordeal member when he first raised his hand and volunteered to run as the treasurer for his lodge and surprisingly won. This began his leadership in the OA. He said that he was not prepared for what he jumped into, but he was willing to learn and put in the hard work that was needed to get the job done. The same was true for his experience as Naional Chief. He has traveled over 90,000 miles to spread his message to the Scouts of the Nation. You may not feel prepared for the position that you are about to take on, but if you just raise your hand, you will definitely learn some thing that will help you in the future. As OA members it is our responsibility to encourage our fellow Scouts to continue on the legacy of scouting. We must reach out to our fellow OA members (active & less active) and units to expand the membership of Scouting so that each person can find out why Scouting is important to them.
