Maryland Proclaims July 16 - Order of the Arrow Centennial Day

It’s official! Thursday, July 16, 2015 will be celebrated as "Order of the Arrow Centennial Day” in the State of Maryland. Governor Larry Hogan has signed a proclamation which details the importance of the Order of the Arrow’s 100th Anniversary and urges "all citizens to support this observance.”

Maryland’s Camp Linstead (1918 – 1944) played an important role in the early history of the Order of the Arrow, hosting the third annual meeting of the Grand Lodge, October 12 & 13, 1923.

Today there are six Order of the Arrow Lodges in the State of Maryland:

  • Nentico Lodge 12 of the Baltimore Area Council

  • Allohak Menewi Lodge 57 of the Laurel Highlands Council

Copies of the Proclamation were delivered to the Scout Executive of each of these councils.
