Egwa Tawa Dee Lodge
Order of the Arrow

"For he who serves his fellows, is of all his fellows, greatest" - Dr. E. Urner Goodman

Welcome to the Egwa Tawa Dee Lodge Official Web Site!

The Order of the Arrow is Scouting's National Honor Society. For more than 90 years, the Order of the Arrow (OA) has recognized Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. This recognition provides encouragement for others to live these ideals as well. Arrowmen are known for maintaining camping traditions and spirit, promoting year-round and long term resident camping, and providing cheerful service to others. OA service, activities, adventures, and training for youth and adults are models of quality leadership development and programming that enrich and help to extend Scouting to America's youth.

The Egwa Tawa Dee Lodge helps the Atlanta Area Council provide a quality Scouting program through recognition of Scouting spirit and performance, development of youth leadership and service, promotion of Scout camping and outdoor programs, and enhancement of membership tenure. Egwa Tawa Dee Lodge is supported by twelve Chapters that include all Districts of the Atlanta Area Council.

Fall is almost upon us, and that means one of the biggest events of the lodge calendar is just around the corner! The lodge's Fall Fellowship will be held from September 16-18 at Woodruff Scout Reservation. In addition to the fun and fellowship at every lodge event, this year's event will feature aquatics, athletics, shooting sports, shows, ceremonies, crafts, and much more. Plus, the inaugural OA Games gives you the chance to represent your chapter in an Olympic-style event in the search for gold, complete with everything you'd expect at the summer games! Whether you're a brand new Brother or a Vigil Honor member, Fall Fellowship always offers something for everyone. Make sure to register by September 5th and we'll see you there!

Lodge Officer Elections

Brothers of the Egwa Tawa Dee Lodge,

Fall Fellowship is just around the corner! Join us September 16 - 18, 2016 at Woodruff Scout Reservation for a weekend of games, crafts, and competition! Please keep in mind that each year, the festivities of Fall Fellowship are joined by Lodge Officer Elections - the time where the members of the Lodge select the Lodge leadership for the next year.

There are five offices available: Lodge Chief, Executive Vice-Chief, Vice-Chief of Program, Vice-Chief of Inductions, Treasurer, and Secretary. If you are interested in running for office for the 2016 - 2017 calendar year, please contact me at lodgechief@aacegwa.org and fill out the Lodge Officer Nomination Form with the appropriate information to be turned into the Lodge Adviser (Mac McKinley) at Fall Fellowship. Make sure to plan ahead accordingly in gathering the required signatures.

If you have any questions concerning the responsibilities of each office, please reference the Lodge Operating Procedures available on the website: http://www.aacegwa.org/Docs/Lodge_Operating_Procedures_01-10-16.pdf

I am available at any time if you have any further questions.
