Unit in Action - Tornado Relief in Mayfield, KY


Frontier District - Pack 351 Spring Hill, TN

On Friday, December 10, 2021, an EF4 ripped through Mayfield, KY and destroyed shops and homes that had stood for at least a hundred years. Most of the town’s historic district sustained severe in some cases, irreparable damage. This natural disaster claimed lives and livelihoods and left many families without homes, and those lucky enough to still have homes were left without water and power for more than a week. When there was a need, Frontier district’s Pack 351 in Spring Hill answered that call. In a matter of 6 days, Pack 351 raised $3,200 to buy supplies and deliver to tornado victims. In addition to numerous supplies, the pack provided an entire palate of water from Home Depot. The Middle Tennessee Council is proud of them, they make a meaningful impact not only in Middle Tennessee, but in areas outside the state.

There are six regional cards available this year (Nashville Area, Clarksville, Columbia/Lawrenceburg/Pulaski, Cookeville/McMinnville, Murfreesboro, Tullahoma) so everyone across the Council can benefit from one of these cards.

The 2022 Scout Card Sale will begin on February 21, 2022 and run through April 22, 2022. This $5.00 Scout card will help your Scouts earn their way to camp and the unit will earn 50% commission on every Scout card sold!

OA Request an Election


The Order of the Arrow (OA) is Scouting’s National Honor Society. It recognizes those who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives and, through that recognition, cause others to conduct themselves in a way that warrants similar recognition, to promote camping, to develop leaders, and to crystallize the Scout habit of helpfulness into a life purpose of leadership in cheerful service to others.

Youth (under 21), must meet a camping requirement and have attained First Class, the Discovery Award, or the Ordinary Rank. Scouters over 21 can be considered for nominations after the election is completed.

OA elections are completed by teams of Arrowmen at the normal time and place of unit meetings. All BSA Troops, Crews, and Ships are urged to have an election by the end of April. This gives their members the most opportunities to attend either of the two Induction Weekends offered by the OA during the summer.

If you are ready to schedule an election, please visit us at www.wa-hi-nasa.org/requestelection/

If you would like more information, please contact us at unitelections@wa-hi-nasa.org
