My Fellow Arrowmen:

We did a GREAT JOB at January's meeting on attendance. Now, more than ever, the need for Arrowmen is high. We have many opportunities coming up for Arrowmen to get involved. Ceremony Teams for Ordeal and Pow Wow are starting up. There are positions that need to be filled. Indian Dancers for Blue and Gold Dinners are also big in demand.

Please to back to each of your Troops and make sure that they are appointing an OA Troop Rep. Also remember, to have a patch on your uniform, you must have your dues paid. They are $10 this year.

I will see you at the February 28 th meeting.

The Vice Chief of Service


We have an exciting service/fellowship opportunity coming up in March. The Crow Chapter has been asked to support a Lodge service project down at the Lost Valley Scout Reservation. In addition to the hours of service, we will have opportunities to have fellowship with other Arrowmen. Crow has been asked to repaint the Grace Pump House. If you have never had a chance to stay in staff city, here's your chance.

More details can be found in the enclosed flyer. if you plan to attend, please let me know either via email or phone. Click here if you need my phone number or email. That way, if there is a postponement due to severe weather, I can contact everyone before they make the trip to the valley.

I would like to see a large turnout for this activity. Let's show the rest of the Lodge why Crow is the "Service Chapter"

Yours in Scouting,

- Trey C.
Vice Chief of Service
