Welcome to Grand Monadnock Lodge

Grand Monadnock Lodge #309 is chartered to the Nashua Valley Council #230, Boy Scouts of America, based in Lancaster, Massachusetts. The lodge functions as a part of the Council's Boy Scout Camping operation, and is under the administrative authority of the Council Scout Executive and the Council Camping Committee.

Grand Monadnock Lodge #309 has consistently been a National Quality Lodge. The Lodge earned the National Quality Lodge distinction again for the year 2007, and was granted a charter to operate for the year 2008.

The lodge executive committee meets the first Tuesday of each month at the Council Service Center in Lancaster, MA. Meetings start promptly at 7:00 PM and are usually over by 8:30 PM. All lodge officers, chairmen, and advisers are expected to attend. Lodge members may attend meetings as nonparticipating observers unless invited to participate by the Lodge Chief or Lodge Adviser.

2017 Troop Elections

Once each year (calendar year or “Scouting” year), a chartered Boy Scout Troop may hold a unit election to elect members of their troop to become members of the Order of the Arrow. Both youth and adult Scouts and Scouters can become members of the OA. New members aren’t elected only by the OA members in your troop; everyone in the troop votes (thereby insuring that Scouts are elected mostly by people who are not OA members). If you troop has no active OA members, that’s fine. A unit election team, trained in the latest OA election policies, will visit a regular troop meeting at your invitation to conduct the election for you.

 

SCHEDULE AN ELECTION NOW

 

Youth elections are held at a normal troop meeting, and take about 20 minutes to complete. In order for an election to be held, at least 50% of your youth members must be present (based on your current chartered troop membership) – if less than 50% are present, the election must be rescheduled. Only elections conducted by an official OA election team trained by Grand Monadnock Lodge will be considered valid. Members of your own troop cannot conduct an election for your troop.

Welcome New Members!

Sealing your membership by becoming a Brotherhood member is a great way to show your commitment and further your experiences with the Lodge. Moving on to Brotherhood membership offers an opportunity to reaffirm one's belief in the high purposes of the Order. Each Brotherhood member commits to even more service to Scouting through the Order.

An Arrowman is eligible for Brotherhood after 10 months of service as an Ordeal member and fulfilling certain requirements. The Order of the Arrow's Jumpstart program is a great way for Arrow men to view and study these requirements, and learn more about the Order. http://jumpstart.oa-bsa.org/

In GML309, Ordeal Members have the opportunity to seal their membership as a Brotherhood member at both the Spring & Fall Inductions Weekends.  Contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
