    The Shawnee Lodge recognized the 2012 Vigil Honor candidates during the Vigil Call-out ceremony at Winter Fellowship Banquet, held 12/17. The Vigil Honor is the highest honor that the Order of the Arrow can present its members for service to the lodge and council. It is a high mark of distinction and recognition reserved for those Arrowmen who have given exceptional service, helping others beyond...  the call of duty, involving personal effort and unselfish interest to one or more of the following: their Lodge, the Order of the Arrow, Scouting, or their Scout camp. Join us in congratulating all Shawnee Lodge Vigil Honor candidates, which included two members of the Eagle Scout Association of Greater St. Louis.

    Joshua S. Bright
    Eagle Scout Josh Bright has demonstrated true leadership to the Order of the Arrow and the Scouting program. He cheerfully served the lodge as Second Vice Chief and served his chapter as Second Vice Chief and Secretary. On the council level, Josh served for five years on NYLT staff and two years as a member of the council’s camp staff. He has also served his district by staffing numerous camporees and klondikes. For his selfless model of outstanding commitment and tireless service to the Order of the Arrow and the Scouting program.

    Lucas D. Duenwald
    Eagle Scout Lucas Duenwald is truly a dedicated Arrowman who embodies brotherhood, cheerfulness, and service in his daily life. Lucas is a vital member of his troop where he mentors his fellow Scouts as they progress through the ranks. He is an experienced ceremonialist who exemplifies the true spirit of the Order. For his exceptional dedication to his troop, his brothers, and to the Order of the Arrow.

    Please join me in congratulating these young men for their Servant Leadership, and living the Eagle Pledge.

    Do you have a Scout in your Troop or Crew who you feel is an exemplary Scout and is looking for a challenging and fun filled way to use his summer months while earning money toward college? Have you encountered a staff member at Scout Camp who you feel went beyond your expectations and you would somehow like to recognize his service to you or your Troop? Do you want to encourage the link between education and Scouting and are looking for a way to do this?

    Each year, the Greater St. Louis Area Council employs approximately 150 high-school and college students to work on our summer camp staff. These young men and women are our best Scouts. They are primarily Eagle Scouts with strong reputations of good character, leadership ability, and personal responsibility. A scholarship fund program was started to recruit and retain summer-camp staff members of the highest caliber. The scholarships are available for camp staff members who have completed their high-school education and are enrolled as Scouts who work one summer, increasing to $1,250 for those who have worked five summers or more. Your contribution helps camp staff members further their education while they continue serving Scouting.

    A contribution to this program can be made in any amount and can be made in honor of someone’s service if you desire. If you make the contribution in honor of someone’s service, they will receive a nice recognition from Council acknowledging that someone has made a
    contribution in their honor and thanking the m for their outstanding service. These letters mean much to these young men and women who serve on camp staff. Please make sure that any Scout who is considering working at camp is aware of this extra financial benefit to
    them.

    If you would like more information, please contact Ray Kreienkamp at 314-821-8750 or kkamp8@goinet.com or Joe Gosney at 314-361-0600.

    ST. LOUIS (Nov. 1, 2012)undefinedMore than 30,000 Scouts and thousands of additional volunteers and parents will be collecting food items during the 28th annual “Scouting for Food” drive in November. Scouts from throughout the Greater St. Louis Area Council, Boy Scouts of America will distribute more than one million bags on Saturday, Nov. 10, and return the following Saturday, Nov. 17, to collect the bags filled with canned goods. Volunteers organized coverage of the food drive by producing maps that divide 27 counties in eastern Missouri and 10 in southern Illinois into more than a thousand areas for Scout units. More than 500 food pantries throughout the region rely on Scouting for Food and the generosity of the community to help stock their shelves before the holiday season and cold winter months. Scouting for Food donations provide up to a four-month supply for some pantries.

    Scouts who collect food in the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County will take donations to one of 46 fire stations where it is sorted and boxed. (Food collected outside of the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County is taken directly to food pantries in those communities.)

    “Our leaders, Scouts and their parents are preparing to work together on an important service projectundefinedfeeding the hungry throughout our region,” said Ron Green, Scout Executive and Chief Executive Officer of the Greater St. Louis Area Council. “We are providing assistance to those in need, but this drive also teaches young people the value of helping others.”

    For the ninth consecutive year, Sunset Transportation, Inc., will transport the food from the fire stations to the St. Louis Area Foodbank. Sunset Transportation will move 55 truckloads of food in cooperation with dozens of truck drivers who donate their time, use their own trucks, and pay for their own fuel.

    The Scouts collected more than 45 million food items during the first 27 years of the drive.
