2018 Third Annual Vigil Re-Union Aug 25/26 2018 at Phillippo Scout Reservation - Saturday, February 3, 2018

The 2016 First Annual Vigil Re-Union was a great event at Camp Phillippo and we celebrated it with our Annual Vigil Conclave.  Over 100 hours of Service to the camp were performed, interaction with the new class of Vigils and a Hootenanny put on by Bruce Haverly and Company.  Those that were not up to camping stayed in the air conditioned Camper Cabin.  In 2017 at the Second Annual Vigil Re-Union and Vigil Conclave at Stearns you outdid yourselves with over 100 hours of Service and over 170 in camp.  Dan Patch held their Chapter Vigil Gathering on Friday night and the weekend was a great success thanks to the Rangers, the new Tonkawa Lodge and all your help.  Now we are back at Phillippo for the 3rd Re-Union and Vigil Conclave and we again offer all Chapters a Building to use Friday night for their Chapter Vigil gathering before the Lodge Vigil.

Don’t miss the fun of seeing fellow Vigils and helping out on service to the camp.  See the photos of the projects we have in store including re-building Ramsay with a Grant from National, improving the OA Trail, painting signs and buildings as well as joining the Men of Stihl on tree service.    So reserve the date for the Third Annual Vigil Re-Union and join in on what should be a fantastic time with the Order of the Arrow Vigil gathering.  Remember, you can tent camp or stretch out in one of our air conditioned buildings.  Registration will be opening soon so you can sign up early.  Did I mention the food?  The chefs from Northwest Chapter are anxious to serve you.  Some Chapters are already requesting space to kick off the weekend with their own Vigil Re-Union and get us started.  Reach out to Layne Lodmell if that interests you.  You can reach Layne at layne.lodmell@gmail.com

The Vigil Honor

Minimize

Alertness to the needs of others is the mark of the Vigil Honor. It calls for an individual with an unusual awareness of the possibilities within each situation.

The Vigil Honor is the highest honor that the Order of the Arrow can bestow upon its members for service to lodge, council, and Scouting. Membership cannot be won by a person's conscious endeavors.

The Vigil Honor is a high mark of distinction and recognition reserved for those Arrowmen who, by reason of exceptional service, personal effort, and unselfish interest, have made distinguished contributions beyond the immediate responsibilities of their position of office to one or more of the following:

  • Lodge
  • Order of the Arrow
  • Scouting community
  • Scout Camp

Under NO circumstances should tenure in Scouting or the Order of the Arrow be considered as reason enough for a Vigil Honor recommendation.

 

Any member of the Order of the Arrow registered in Scouting and in good standing in a regularly chartered lodge is eligible for recommendation to the National Order of the Arrow Committee for elevation to the Vigil Honor provided that, at the time of the recommendation, the individual has been a Brotherhood member for a minimum of two years. A lodge may nominate a maximum of two percent of their registered Arrowmen once a year, through the Vigil Honor petition, found in the annual re-charter packet. At least 50 percent of all nominated must be under 21 at the time of nomination.
