Renew your Dues for 2015

Dear Brothers:

It’s that time of year again.  Dues are to be paid.  In order to retain your membership in this Lodge and attend Lodge functions, you will need to pay your dues for the year 2015.  The cost is $15.00, or $20.00 if you did not pay the year before.  You can send your dues to the Monmouth Council, B.S.A. in Morganville addressed to Na Tsi Hi Lodge.

You can also select the Pine Pass option. For one fee you can cover dues and registration for all events for 2015.  This cost is $100 or $80 for 2014 Ordeal inductees.

The Order of the Arrow and BSA policy only allows you to maintain your Lodge membership if you are currently registered with the BSA.  Please fill in YOUR BSA NUMBER (located on your BSA membership card), and confirm or include Unit Number or other BSA Registration location (District/Council etc.) where you are currently registered.  If you have let your BSA registration lapse please contact your Troop, Venture Crew, Sea Scout Ship or Pack to re-register or your Scouting Professional if your primary registration is with a District or Council.

You undertook the Ordeal to prove your dedication to the high ideals of service that are the hallmark of our Order.  Perhaps you have achieved an even greater understanding of Wimachtendienk, Wingolauchsik, Witahemui by sealing your membership through the Brotherhood – or even now keep the flame of Cheerful Service alive through Leadership in Service.  You are an Arrowman.  And we ask that you continue your support for the Order of the Arrow and its worthy goals.

Think back on your Ordeal – Remember the Obligation, and the Admonition.  And remember … “The ones who chose you, need you.”

Yours in Brotherhood,

Membership Chairman

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
