The 2020 National Order of the Arrow Conference is quickly approaching this summer from August 3rd-8th. NOAC is an event where Arrowmen from across our nation gather together for an inspirational and unforgettable experience full of fellowship, training, adventure, and fun! This past weekend during the National Planning Meeting the theme for NOAC was announced, “Step Up, Step Forward.” As Matt Parsons, the 2019 National Chief explained at the National Planning Meeting, the theme is more than just the words embroidered on a patch, the NOAC theme is integrated into the conference program.
At the 2020 New England Fellowship, one aspect of the program has risen above the others: the evening shows! NEF shows serve the purpose of entertaining hundreds of Arrowmen, sharing information about the event, and wrapping up the weekend on Saturday night. These shows are famous for t-shirt cannons, awesome music, and exciting skits!
On November 30, 2019, Catamount Lodge hosted their annual end-of-the-year awards and recognition banquet! This event took place at The Manor in West Boyleston, Massachusetts. Many distinguished Arrowmen were in attendance, including Section NE-1 Chief Conor Power, Section Secretary Owen O’Brien, and Tulpe Lodge Chief Pat Dalton!
During the banquet, several dedicated brothers were recognized with numerous awards, including the Spirit of the Arrow, Catamount Arrowman of the Year, James E. West Fellowship, and the Founders Award.
