Celebrity in our midst
I am very proud to say our very own Mr. Bill Marineau was awarded the Order of the Arrow’s Founders Award. The Founder’s Award recognizes Arrowmen who have given outstanding service to their lodge. The award is reserved for an Arrowman who demonstrates that he or she personifies the spirit of selfless service, as advocated by founder E. Urner Goodman and cofounder Carroll A. Edson. We are very proud of you, Mr. Marineau; this recognition is most well- deserved.
