Once each year, a troop may hold a unit election to elect youth members of their troop to become members of the Order of the Arrow. The Raven District is offering a special call-out ceremony for candidates elected into the Order of the Arrow by their troop last fall. Scouts are not required to participate in a call-out ceremony but must complete an Ordeal within one year, in order to become a member of Colonneh Lodge. If a candidate does not attend an Ordeal within one-year, then the candidate has to be re-elected by their unit. The call-out is being held at the Baytown Nature Center (6213 Bayway Dr. Baytown, TX 77520).
