Frequently Asked Questions for the 100th Anniversary 2012 Milestone.
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow, we're planning to host the biggest, fun-filled, most exciting National Order of the Arrow Conference in history. We want as many Arrowmen as possible to have the chance to hang out with 10,000 of their closest friends, which is why the Order is launching the Centennial Challenge!
In 2013, your lodge's charge is to take the lid to this crate and paint it on one side to reflect your lodge's legacy. Consider incorporating the design for your 100th anniversary NOAC 2015 contingent flap into the lid design.
The 100th Anniversary Committee is very excited about the roll-out of Legacy Project 2015 introduced at NOAC 2012.
As part of the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow, a commemorative fireplace will be constructed. This fireplace will be onsite at the National Order of the Arrow Conference in 2015. All lodges are invited to participate in this endeavor by securing a rock and having it engraved with your lodge name and council city to be used in the construction of this fireplace.
With a lodge rock submitted and your lodge’s legacy depicted on the lid, you will research and write a lodge history book in 2014. Each submitted history book will be viewable through the digital archive of the Order of the Arrow and incorporated into the 2015 NOAC program. By creating a thorough history you will preserve your lodge’s unique story, which will be enjoyed by Arrowmen in the Order’s next century.
