If you can’t make it to NOAC for the Centennial year, the Order of the Arrow has created a traveling experience to celebrate the OA Centennial in 2015, ArrowTour.
ArrowTour is one of many programs and initiatives that comprise a year-long celebration of the Order of the Arrow’s centennial anniversary. In the summer of 2015, four delegations of youth Arrowmen will travel to council camps and Scouting events to bring our national centennial experience to Scouts, Arrowmen, and communities throughout the country.
Here in the Northeast you can find the Schedule with a number of stops beginning on May 31, 2015 and extending until July 28, 2015
As you might expect, a number of patches were created for the event. Here is a sample of the basic patch.
ArrowTour 2015 Pocket Patch
“The Founding Fathers established a system which meant a radical break from that which preceded it. A written constitution would provide a permanent form of government, limited in scope, but effective in providing both liberty and order. Government was not to be a matter of self-appointed rulers, governing by whim or harsh ideology. It was not to be government by the strongest or for the few. Our principles were revolutionary. We began as a small, weak republic. But we survived. Our example inspired others, imperfectly at times, but it inspired them nevertheless. This constitutional republic, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal, prospered and grew strong. To this day, America is still the abiding alternative to tyranny. That is our purpose in the world — nothing more and nothing less.” –Ronald Reagan
