The 2016 Unami Lodge Vigil Class Updated
The Vigil Honor is the highest recognition a lodge can bestow upon its members for service to the lodge, the Order of the Arrow, the Scouting communty, and the Scout camp. Dating to 1915 when our founder, Dr. E. Urner Goodman, was inducted as the first Vigil Honor member, more than 600 brothers of Unami Lodge, One have been selected to keep their Vigil. At this year's Fall Fellowship weekend, held at Musser Scout Reservation, Unami, One inducted thirteen brothers into the Vigil Honor in recognition of their dedicated and altruistic service. Those inducted were:
|Patrick Campbell||Matthew Gutterman|
|Alexander Cross||Gerald Rafter|
|Jeromy Hafer||Frances Rigler|
|Spencer Hespenheide||James Sontag|
|Christopher Kelly||Alicia Tryon|
|James Owen Patane|
Please congratulate our brothers on this lofty recognition.
The Vigil Honor Committee would like to express gratitude to all brothers who assisted in making the Vigil Honor induction process a success. Preparing and executing the Vigil Honor induction experience for thirteen new members is a daunting task, most especially when it is conducted at a camp that has not been the site of such an induction in more than a decade. It should come as no surprise, however, that the Vigil Honor brothers of Unami, One accomplished it with cheer and enthusiasm. It would not have been possible without the dedicated service that they provided, and for that, the committee thanks them.
