A Letter from the Chief

January 1, 2017 Aaron Coffman COCOAHASection Chief


            Brothers, much has been happening behind the scenes regarding Section NE-4B. Just to highlight some of the key points of the current business. The Order of the Arrow High Adventure Scholarship forms are out and applications are currently being accepted until January 14th at Midnight. This is a great opportunity for any scout ages 15 to 20 to attend a National High Adventure Base for just about the cost of the transportation to get there! This year we will be giving out 4 OAHA Scholarships to applicants. Online and Physical applications can be found Here and if you would like more information on the programs that are offered you can click Here. We highly encourage you to fill out an application if you are interested in attending a High Adventure Base through the OA’s program. These programs are a once in a lifetime opportunity that I can honestly say have changed my life in many ways and has given me opportunities that I would have never had any other way along with making me a ton of friends along the way!

Another big piece of news is that the belt Buckles that many have pre-ordered are finally in! They were delivered to Section Advisor Craig Spink’s work this past week. We are currently working to find the cheapest way to mail them out to those who have pre-paid for them if you would like to receive yours earlier than SALLS or Conclave. Feel free to Contact us Here.

Along the lines of fundraisers for the Section, don’t forget our SG Trading Post is open and can be found Here. Also if you have ordered one or more of the Section Challenge Coins you can feel free to pre-pay for them or pay for them in person at either SALLS or Conclave. Regarding other merchandise stay on the lookout because there will be some more stuff coming out soon! Thank you for all of the support you give us! If it wasn’t for you guys we would never be able to do what we do.

Operation Arrow, the OA’s presence at the 2017 National Scout Jamboree is going to be bigger than ever! If you have not signed up to be a part of this highly enthusiastic team of Arrowmen from all across this great nation I highly encourage you to do so! You can work as either a trek guide leading Jamboree Troops to the Garden Grounds at the Summit, Native American Village where you can spend your time at the Summit preforming traditional Native American style dances for Troops in full regalia, or on the Service Core where you will help the Jamboree run over all doing a lot of miscellaneous things to ensure that the Jamboree goes off without a hitch this year. If you have any questions regarding the program click Here or feel free to reach out us for more info.

Our Section Advancement of Lodge Leaders’ Summit, SALLS in short, planning is well underway for 2017. The date has been set for March 25th at IUP much like last year. The cost of the event and start and finish times will be out soon so stay posted for more information!

Thank You for your Time and Carry On!,
Aaron Coffman
Section NE-4B Chief 2016-17
