The Vigil Honor is the third and final honor in the Order of the Arrow. It features the Ordeal Induction Arrow, Brotherhood bars, and Vigil Triangle on the white sash.
To become eligible for the Vigil Honor, a Brotherhood Arrowman must continually stay active for 2 years after their Brotherhood induction. 1 Vigil Candidate is allowed for every 50 dues paid member of the Lodge. The Vigil Honor is bestowed on individuals for continued service to Chapter, Lodge, Council, and/or Camp. Tenure in OA is not enough to bestow the Vigil Honor.
If you’re interested on being in the Committee, contact our Vigil Chief.
Kevin Padrick Memorial
Crater Lake Council and Lo La’Qam Geela Lodge will remember Kevin Padrick by the establishment of the Kevin Padrick Memorial Fund that through the remembrance of his name, exemplary dedication, and service will help others explore the adventures of Philmont Scout Ranch that he loved dearly. Where Kevin would personally help in the past, Crater Lake Council and Lo La’Qam Geela Lodge will pick up to honor and remember him. Kevin’s personal mission was to push youth to the edge of their boundaries and explore high adventure. His passion for ultra light-weight backpacking, which he taught and demonstrated in his own personal and Scouting adventures, was contagious. This Memorial Fund, established by Crater Lake Council, will be physically represented by a Council and Lodge patch.
Patch sets are available from Lodge events and Crater Lake Council Stores
