Chief’s Corner

Fellow Arrowmen,

I am honored to be your Lodge Chief for a second year.  One of my top priorities for the new year is to help chapters out a lot more.  Through all the OA events that myself and other Arrowmen participated in, we found a lot of cool and new resources to help out everyone in the lodge.  Myself and the Lodge Officers are also planning out our events for the year, so make sure to sign up for them.  I look forward to my second term and if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me at

Your Fellow Arrowman

Thomas Ghiringhelli
