Four members of Troop 66 of Hagerstown recently marked achievements in the Order of the Arrow, a national Boy Scout honor society.

William McNulty, Mark Shepheard and Michael Milner were awarded the Order of the Arrow, and completed their ordeal at Camp Sinoquipe this summer. Thomas Milner, who already was a member of the order, was awarded the brotherhood honor and also completed the ordeal at Camp Sinoquipe.

The Order of the Arrow recognizes Scouts who best exemplify the Scout oath and law in their daily lives.

The brotherhood membership can be awarded after 10 months as an ordeal member, and after fulfilling certain requirements, a member may take part in the brotherhood ceremony, which further emphasizes the ideals of Scouting and the order.

Completion of the ceremony signifies full membership in the Order of the Arrow.

The order was founded by Dr. E. Urner Goodman and Carroll A. Edson in 1915 at the Treasure Island Camp of the Philadelphia Council, Boy Scouts of America.
