Wahunsenakah Lodge 333 of Newport News VA held their annual Spring Service Weekend on May 15-17, 2015. The event patch for this activity was not yet available, so it was distributed later beginning with the Lodge's 100th Anniversary of the OA celebration on July 11.
The patch, designed by Barry Green, pictures Order of the Arrow co-founder Carroll A. Edson and Chief Scout Earnest Thompson Seton at camp discussing Native American ways of nature, leading to the beginnings of the OA.

The patch issued for the event celebrates the centennial anniversary of the Order of the Arrow, depicting E. Urner Goodman (co-founder of the OA) being recruited by a young boy named Gil Talmadge to become a scoutmaster. At 20 years of age Goodman became Scoutmaster of Troop 1, the first Boy Scout troop in Philadelphia.
The patch was designed by Barry Green and is the first in a series recognizing the 100th anniversary of the Order of the Arrow. The OA Centennial totem is featured at the lower center of the emblem.
