Thunderbird Chapter - Order of the Arrow - Lowaneu Allanque Lodge 41
There are no Thunderbird OA Chapter meetings in June or July, because there is no Roundtable! We will be meeting once again in August. Enjoy Summer and Camp!
Thunderbird District OA Chapter meets at the same time and place as Thunderbird District Roundtable - 7:30 – 8:30 PM - Please Note our NEW LOCATION: Trinity Green Trails - 2701 Maple Ave, Lisle, IL 60532 - Map Link
Order of the Arrow Representatives and members: Please make announcements at your Troop meeting about our Chapter Meetings and Lodge Events to let all OA members know what is coming up, and that they are welcome to attend! It is still not too late to renew your membership in the Order of the Arrow.

All OA members are required to pay annual dues of $20. You can also pay for your dues and 4 discounted lodge events (spring and fall fellowships, winter banquet, and frendship powwow). If you have not done so, please pay your dues at OA41.org. Every penny of your dues goes straight to the Lodge to provide all of the awesome experiences throughout the year for our members. It also goes to provide camperships to our council camps, Lodge Leadership Development training for members, and to help with various lodge service projects. Scoutmasters; Charter renewal is going on now. It is a great time to collect and pay lodge dues for your members and submit them on-line.
As always, feel free to contact Mr. Hedborn with any questions.
Our election season is over. Congratulations to all who have been elected! Stay tuned for the next step in your OA journey is to do your Ordeal which can be done during summer camp at Camp Freeland Leslie, Spring Fellowship, or Fall Fellowship.
The Order's commitment to our unchanging mission and purpose remains steadfast, and we are excited to welcome new members, and look forward to having female members join our ranks. We know that, like all of our OA members, they will serve as role models and inspirations to others – both within the Boy Scouts of America and beyond.

Purpose of the Order of the Arrow
To recognize those campers – Scouts and Scouters – who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives and by such recognition cause other campers to conduct themselves in such a manner to warrant recognition.
