Wahunsenakah releases first activity patch for 2015

Wahunsenakah Lodge 333 of Newport News, VA held their annual Winter Service Weekend March 27-29. The event was originally scheduled for February 20-22, but was postponed due to sub-zero temperatures.

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.
