Time to Pay your Dues
Ut-In Sélica Lodge dues are renewed annually. Dues can be renewed online or through the mail. Dues are $20 per year. You do not have to pay back dues, just pay the current year to get current. For $90 you can get an annual pass, the 2019 Gold Card. The Gold Card includes the 2019 lodge dues, the event registration fees for the induction weekends, the Fall Lodge Fellowship and Annual Lodge Banquet. For questions regarding dues status or pocket flap orders, contact email@example.com. Don’t wait, remember you must be a dues paid member to participate in lodge activities. The Council is using a new payment system, if you are having problems please watch these two videos. The first explains entering your contact information. The second explains the booking process.
2019 marks the 25th anniversary of the Ut-In Selica Lodge. We are making a special patch available for this celebration. Cost of the patch will be $10 and can be added to your dues payment.
There is also a special three patch set (very limited quantities) consisting of the 25th anniversary patch, a “ghosted” version of the match, and a mylar version of the patch available for purchase from the Lodge trading post for $50. See it at the annual lodge banquet in November.

October 26 – Webeloree Service & San Francisco Scavanger Hunt Fellowship
November 6-7 Fellowship, Lodge Officer Elections & Annual Banquet
The Order of the Arrow, Scouting’s Honor Society, is made up of thousands of great Scouts and Scouters like yourself, who were elected to the Order by their fellow Scouts because they saw something in you, something special – those qualities of trust, leadership, friendship, brotherhood, and a desire to serve others – that set you apart.
You undertook the Induction to prove your dedication to the high ideals of service that is the hallmark of our Order. Perhaps you have achieved an even greater understanding of Wimachtendienk, Wingolauchsik, Witahemui by sealing your membership through the Brotherhood, or even now keep the flame of cheerful service alive through leadership in service. You are an Arrowman and we ask that you continue your support for the Order of the Arrow and its worthy goals which are more important now than ever.
An active member in Ut-In Sélica Lodge is someone who is a currently registered Scout or Scouter in the Mt Diablo Silverado Council with current dues paid. With active membership, you are entitled to attend all functions of the lodge appropriate for your honor level. It also entitles you to wear your OA flap. Technically, if you don’t pay your dues, you are not a member, and the flap should be removed from your uniform.
Think back on your Ordeal. Remember the Obligation and Admonition. Remember … “The ones, who chose you, need you.”

Congratulations to the 2018 Founders Award Recipients
The Founders Award was introduced at the 1981 National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC), it recognizes Arrowmen who have given outstanding service to their lodge. The award is reserved for an Arrowman who demonstrates that he or she personifies the spirit of selfless service, as advocated by founders E. Urner Goodman and Carroll A. Edson. The Lodge may petition the national Order of the Arrow committee to present up to two awards annually. If more than one award is presented , one must be awarded to a youth (under the age of 21).
