Due to military commitments, a member of our lodge is unable to keep his Vigil with us. Can he complete his Vigil at the Lodge where he is stationed in the military or does it have to be his home Lodge?
We have encountered some confusion as to when someone can be awarded the Vigil Honor. Are the two years of service required at the time of selection for Vigil or at the time of the Vigil induction ceremony?
A. Hello Mark,
Q. Good morning Ray.
After many years away from Scouting and OA, the time has come for my son to join. Is there anything that I can or should do to renew my membership in the OA?
I look forward to your response and assistance.
A. Hi, Mike.
Q. How do you keep the elections from being a popularity contest? Some scouts who meet the requirements and definitely have the qualities of a true Boy Scout are not elected. They meet the qualifications year after year. Even the other Scouts are surprised certain Scouts are never elected.
