Help Us Give Back To Our Community
As some of you know, the lodge’s annual Community Service Day is coming up next month! On Saturday, March 30th members of Unami Lodge One, and Cradle of Liberty Council (Yes, it is open to non-OA members) are invited to attend community service projects at two locations within Cradle of Liberty Council. Service projects will consist of clearing brush, raking leaves, cutting branches, and cleaning up trash at one of the following locations
- Chester Creek Rail Trail (249 Knowlton Rd, Media, PA 19063)
- Mount Moriah Cemetery (6201 Kingsessing Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19142)
- Nor Gwyn baseball association (145 Hancock Rd, North Wales, PA 19454)
Check-in for the service projects will be between 8:30 and 9:00 AM, with the projects being finished around 3:00 PM. Please wear appropriate attire for the work projects. Anyone is more than welcome to bring their own yard tools. Lunch will not be provided, so individuals may pack a lunch or snack, or units that are attending together may have members volunteer to bring snacks. It would be a great help for any registered scouters to attend, and make sure you spread the word in your chapter or troop! Remember that the event is open to registered scouters outside of the Order of the Arrow, so encourage them to attend, as well.

Message From The Chief
I’m very excited to be serving my brothers this upcoming year. I am currently a senior at MaST Community Charter School in Northeast Philadelphia, and I plan to pursue Finance in college. For the past four summers, I’ve had an incredible time working at Resica Falls Scout Reservation as an Ecology staff member and as a member of the OA summer crew. Serving on camp staff is definitely an unforgettable, rewarding experience. Through camp and my friendships in my troop, I found myself invested in the Order of the Arrow. I’ve learned that the Order of the Arrow is a completely unique organization that is truly youth led. We have so much in store for our newest members and for long-time Arrowmen!
Unami Lodge is a gateway to numerous opportunities for youth to grow, learn, enjoy themselves, and strengthen leadership skills. We have a tangible, positive impact on Scouting, the Scout Camps, our Council, and the community. It changed my outlook on Scouting and because of the OA, I’ve met some of my closest friends, and strengthened my already existing friendships. We have talented chapter chiefs, chairmen, and officers this upcoming year, who will give it their all and ensure our program is the best it can be! Be on the lookout for upcoming events! Our Spring Service 1 Weekend at Musser Scout Reservation is from April 12th-14th and the theme will be Carnival. I encourage the Scouts who joined our Order in 2018 to come out, you won’t regret it!
Yours in Brotherhood, Aidan Campbell email@example.com
Calling all Arrowmen!
Are you interested in helping the lodge? Do you want to get involved but don’t know how? We have an answer! Become an OA Representative. You can serve your lodge by passing information from the Lodge to your unit and in the process fulfill the requirement for a leadership position. This is a great was to get involved in the Lodge and it is a vital program to the lodge. To become an OA Rep, just ask your unit leader to give you the form to fill out and then send it to the address on the bottom of the form or give it to your chapter chief. If your unit leader didn't get a form, or if you have any questions or problems, you should contact your chapter chief.
Everyone interested in getting involved in the lodge should contact Lodge Chief, Aidan Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always looking for additional people to help out on our committees, so pick one that interests you and jump on in. We look forward to working with all of you!
