#DareToDo

At the 2015 NOAC, all Arrowmen were challenged – do 100 acts of unselfish service in the next 100 days.

It’s simple. Each day do an act of service, no matter how small, for the other people around you. Post about it on social media using the hashtag #DareToDo — and we’ll make America better, each day, together.

Day of Service

Octoraro 22 is celebrating the centennial anniversary of the OA with a centennial event – a Day of Service!

Volunteers to assemble at 8:30am on October 10th for coffee and donuts and for planting instructions. After that work will commence. Projects should be completed by noon, but if a few want to stay longer at each site to check the work, then they may want to bring a lunch. Both BVA and CRC will have water for the volunteers.
