Joint Roundtable Closing and Vespers
OA Chapter Meeting
The Order of the Arrow is a “Brotherhood of Scout Honor Campers”, often referred to as the Brotherhood of Cheerful Service. We are a group of people who have been elected by our peers as being capable of upholding the honor through our continued actions of cheerful service to others. It is a youth-run organization, meaning that all important decisions are made by the youth (age 20 or less) under advisement of the adult Advisors.
Meetings of the Lake Minnetonka Chapter of the Totanhan Nakaha Lodge, Order of the Arrow, are held in conjunction with the district roundtables on the first Thursday of each month.
7:00 – 8:30 – OA Chapter Meeting During Roundtable
Chapter officers should attend, and all troops should send their OA Troop Representative (a youth leadership position) or another OA member to represent their unit, but all OA members are invited to attend these meetings. We are planning for a big year and need lots of help.

Commissioners Meeting (for the Commissioners AND District members)
Commissioners will talk about the experience at the November 18 College of Commissioner Service, and a new plan to upgrade the District Commissioners Corp will be outlined and discussed.
