Since 1999, the National OA Committee has annually selected lodges from each region to receive matching service grants. For 2017, 31 lodges in councils across the nation were chosen to receive a combined total of $50,000 in matching grants via the OA Service Grant program.
What a year we have had. Coming out of a record breaking centennial year, in every sense of the meaning; there was a lot of speculation about how this year would play out. Could lodges build off of the success of the previous year? Will people be burnt out? Have we hit our climax as an organization? These past months answered all of those questions and more, showing that not only have we not reached our climax, but the best is yet to come.
