OA 2019 Vigil Induction
All Vigil Honor members are invited to attend the 2019 Vigil Induction event to help support the Vigil Honor candidate class of 2018. There will be a Vigil Call-Out ceremony to publicly recognize the selected Vigil Honor candidates at the lodge banquet on Saturday night after the Lodge Leadership Development. The lodge banquet is between 6:00 pm and 8:00 pm. Once the lodge banquet ends on Saturday night, the Vigil candidates will be given time to prepare for the Vigil Honor induction and will be taken down to the induction event later that Saturday night (around 10:00 pm). Vigil members will be given time for fellowship and to discuss how Vigil members can help support the lodge as leaders during the induction event.
There will then be a public recognition ceremony on Sunday morning at breakfast (around 10:00 am) where the newly inducted Vigil members will be given their Vigil certificates and insignia to symbolize their attainment of the highest honor the Order of the Arrow and a lodge can bestow on an Arrowman. Other Arrowmen or guests who are not Vigil Honor members are welcome to camp overnight and attend the public recognition ceremony on Sunday morning to celebrate with the newly inducted Vigil Honor members. However, only Vigil members can attend the Vigil induction event itself.
Vigil candidates and ceremony participants are strongly encouraged to arrange rides home after the event as the national safety guidelines suggest.
Please note that registration and cost for this event is separate from the Lodge Leadership Development and Lodge Banquet. If you would like to attend both events or just the lodge banquet and Vigil induction event, you will need to register and pay for both events. If you would like to just attend the Vigil Banquet on Sunday morning at 10:00 am or just attend the Vigil induction event, please register only through this event link.
If you have any questions about this event, please contact the Vigil Adviser, Elliott Park, at 808-356-9312 or firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a call to all Vigil Honor members who are interested in helping the lodge in any capacity and/or to support the Vigil Honor candidates. Hope to see you there!
