Arrowman Service Award

The Arrowman Service Award was an active Order of the Arrow (OA) award from 2001 through 2003. The purpose of the award was to increase service to the Boy Scouts of America by Arrowmen.

Service Grant Program Announced

In 1999, the National OA Committee announced a new program to encourage lodges to give service to their councils and camps. This program was designed to help lodges deliver the fourth part of the OA’s purpose, “to crystallize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others”.

OA Promotional Filmstrip

From time to time the Order of the Arrow would develop a filmstrip to promote the Order, camping and service. A filmstrip is just what it sounds like; it is a group of photo slides compiled together like a film, complete with sprockets on each side to advance the film one frame at a time.

Jay Dunbar

Jay Dunbar is the author of the current pre-Ordeal Ceremony. Realizing that the four ceremonial officials are equally necessary to form a circle, he coined the term “principals” and gave each an equal part, basing the text on the 1948 revision and adding the Investing. He is the creator of The Brotherhood Hike, and the author (as Tischitanissohen, his Vigil Honor name) of The Drum: a training aid for ceremonial teams. With Ray Petit, he co-authored the original Eleven Cardinal Principles of the Induction (now the Ten Induction Principles), and the Spirit of the Arrow Show, which introduced Spirit of the Arrow to the nation at the 1971 NOAC.

"Service" Influences Formation

From 1914 – 1916 the Philadelphia Council led by Scout Executive Walter S. Cowing used “Service” as its watchword. In 1914 the council recognized deserving individuals with a special “Badge of Service” pin.
