Vigil Recommendations are open

Vigil Sash

Lost in Serving Others…

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 and council, Scouting, and their community. 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. The Vigil Honor cannot be earned by a person’s conscious endeavor; it comes as a recognition of unselfish leadership in service . It is said that the Vigil seeks its own.

Any member of the Order of the Arrow registered in Scouting, in good standing in a regularly chartered lodge, and who has been a Brotherhood member for a minimum of two years is eligible for recommendation to the National Order of the Arrow Committee for elevation to the Vigil Honor.

The lodge is now taking recommendations through November 9, 2021 for the 2022 Vigil Class.
