New Jersey Scout Museum Open House

New Jersey Scout Museum Open House March 13 & 14, 2015
The Board of Trustees and Operating Committee of the New Jersey Scout Museum invite you to join us on Friday March 13 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm and Saturday March14, 2015 from 4:00pm – 7:00pm for this celebratory open house.
One hundred years ago, on Treasure Island in the Delaware River, the Order of the Arrow was founded as the honor society of the Boy Scouts of America. Since then, tens of thousands of members have provided cheerful service in support of Scouting throughout the United States. To celebrate the Order of the Arrow Centennial, a new exhibit documenting its history in New Jersey will be unveiled.
Another new exhibit will feature Girl Scout camps and camping. From the Highlands to the Jersey Shore; photographs, t-shirts, camping gear, patches and artifacts will tell the story of past and current camps that were enjoyed by generations of Girl Scouts. Come and look for your favorite sites.
The NJSM currently features a series of exhibits that showcase the history of Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts in New Jersey, presenting comparisons of parallel programs such as Boy Scout Sea Scouts and Girl Scout Mariners. Also on exhibit are materials explaining the origins of the NJSM and one of our founders Dave Wolverton; and exhibits from our Ann Nally Collection showcasing her national role in Cub Scouting. These exhibits were originally unveiled as part of the grand reopening of NJSM in 2013.
Please RSVP for your family or unit to 732.862.1282.

Message from the Chief

Happy New Year everyone I hope your holiday season went well! The winter banquet was a great success and it was a pleasure to see all of the brothers socializing together. Even though our next large event will be in late April, it is still important to keep the spirit of brotherhood close to you. At the recent COC we discussed the JTE requirements and planned various aspects of conclave. Thank you to all that attended. It is very important that you reach out to your units regarding elections. The new JTE requirements for 2015 call for elections to be done by an arrowman from an outside unit. I know many youth have an arrowman from a nearby unit that they can ask to run their election.  We will be holding our LLD in the upcoming months and I cannot stress how important it is that as many as  possible chairmen attend. As always chairmen should be looking for vice chairs if they don’t have one already. Everyone have a great winter and stay safe.

Zachary Bolger,
Lodge Chief
