Are you a member of OA? Are you planning on attending the OA service weekend on May 21-23? Why not? You earned the sash and wear the flap for a reason – remember? You can also stay involved in the OA at the monthly meetings – the third Monday of every month at Fairfield Presbyterian Church – 7:00. You can get a lot more information at the Nawakwa lodge website: http://nawakwa.org including downloadable forms.

We still need commitments for Summer Camp and Seabase. See a leader!

Advice from the Scoutmaster: Remember in an emergency the most important thing to do is STOP (Stay calm, Think, Observe, Plan)
