At the 2015 Report to the State in February, Supreme Court Justice Paul Newby and the representatives from the state’s Order of the Arrow lodges pledged to our public officials to complete one service project in each of the state’s 100 counties during the 2015 year. As part of this pledge, our Lodge will be collecting new toys and delivering them to a hospital in every county that is within Occoneechee Council. We need your help in filling this promise. Below is a list of items that have been requested at several Children’s Hospitals. We will be collecting items that are brought to Lodge Leadership Development.
