Each year, every Order of the Arrow Lodge is eligible to
nominate to the National Council a small number of their
Brotherhood members to be considered for the Vigil Honor. In
order to be eligible for this – the highest honor a local Lodge
can bestow -- a member must:
been a Brotherhood member in good standing for
at least two years at the time of the selection
2) Be registered with the Boy Scouts of America.
The Vigil Honor cannot be won by a person’s conscious endeavor.
It comes as recognition for altruistic leadership in service. It
cannot be awarded for normal duties performed by a member who
holds an elected or appointed position in the Lodge. It is
truly for service “above and beyond” the norm.
In the Pocumtuc Lodge, by Executive Board decision, the only
way a person can be considered for the Vigil Honor is to have
their name and qualifications submitted on a Vigil Nomination
Form to the Vigil Committee. Completed
Vigil Nomination Forms MUST BE RECEIVED no later than
Friday, March 5, 2010. Please send forms to:
Mr. Sam Everett
Attn: Vigil Committee
