The Order of the Arrow, featuring the top Boy Scouts across the nation, is marking its 100th anniversary and celebrating with a cross-country tour that made a stop in Wheeling on Tuesday afternoon.
Members of the organization are called “Arrow Men” and the group spent the afternoon at Cabela’s at the Highlands.
Tour stops are free and open to the public, giving guests the opportunity to take part in a program that includes interactive exhibits with activities like silk screening and challenge games.
“The goal is really to raise awareness about scouting and The Order of the Arrow and kind of let everyone celebrate how far we have come over the last hundred years as we chart our course of the next century of service,” said Rick Angeletti, a member of The Order of the Arrow.
The group is known as Scouting’s National Honor Society, and it is intended to recognize Scouts who best represent the Scout Oath in their daily lives.
