The Nissequogue Chapter of Shinnecock Lodge (Boy Scouts of America Order of the Arrow) will be holding a call out ceremony Thursday evening May 10th prior to Matinecock District's Roundtable meeting at John Glenn High School in Elwood.
Due to poor weather conditions on the original call out date the Chapter has added this Ceremony for those candidates who weren’t able to attend on April 20th. Registration will begin at 6:00pm with the Ceremony starting at dusk (6:30pm).
The Order of the Arrow is the National Honor Camping Society for the Boy Scouts of America; its members can be recognized by the white sash worn with their Scout uniform. Eligible Scouts having met the criteria (being a First Class Scout or higher rank, living the scout spirit, and within a two year period camped a minimum of 15 days, including a week-long camping experience) must then be elected by their Scouting peers at weekly troop meetings to become candidates to join the Order of the Arrow.
In full view of Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and family members representing Scout Troops, Cub Packs, and the Smithtown and Huntington area communities, those nominated Scouts from the Matinecock District will be recognized at this annual Ceremony. As dusk gathers, the scouts and those present will be able to watch as the Nissequogue Chapter's Ceremony Team, dressed in Native American regalia, proceeds with the Call Out Ceremony.
The Nissequogue Chapter normally meets on the second Thursday each month, the same night as roundtable, at John Glenn High School, off Elwood road, at 7:30pm. All past and present members are welcome to participate. For more info, please contact Chapter Adviser Bill Davis Sr. at 631-942-9093 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
