Ask the Chairman
Our lodge's Vigil selection committee is considering candidates and their
accomplishments. Should we use the letter they wrote for Brotherhood in our
consideration of Vigil Candidates?
What is written or fulfilled in a Brotherhood letter should not be used as
criteria for Vigil selection. The sole standard for Vigil selection is found in
the OA Handbook and Guide for Officers and Advisers, quoted below.
"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 or office to one or more of the following:
their lodge, the Order of the Arrow, Scouting or their Scout camp."
Hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can be of any other
