Lodge History Book

With a lodge rock submitted and your lodge's legacy depicted on the lid, you will research and write a lodge history book in 2014. Each submitted history book will be viewable through the digital archive of the Order of the Arrow and incorporated into the 2015 NOAC program. By creating a thorough history you will preserve your lodge's unique story, which will be enjoyed by Arrowmen in the Order's next century.

Each lodge is asked to submit the contact information of the lodge's chairman and adviser for this project through the following survey. These lodge contacts will be sent monthly newsletters and helpful resources as they undertake this important project.
