The Order of the Arrow (OA) is BSA's honor society for Boy Scout Troops and Varsity Teams, with members elected by their peers (including both members and non-members). Each District is associated with a specific OA Chapter. Each OA Chapter is a member of their OA Lodge, which is associated with a Council.
The Circle Ten Council's OA Lodge is the Mikanakawa Lodge.
The Five Trails District's OA Chapter is the Satank Chapter.
NOTE: This is a NEW LINK for the Satank Chapter web site due to the insertion of malware on the former Satank web site. Thank you for your patience while we RECONSTRUCT the original Satank web site, which should be complete mid-August, 2016.

The Five Trails District Eagle Project-of-the-Year for 2015 was awarded to T840's Alan Ritchie. Alan's creative project was to assist students at Coppell High School (CHS) who have limited mobility to experience some aspects of everyday life that many of us take for granted. Alan worked with the CHS Special Education department to prepare vignettes available to students on their iPads using a special application. Alan led friends, fellow Scouts, and several Adult Leaders while they recorded scenarios at various community locations that these students might not normally get to visit due to their severely limited mobility. To allow us to see an example of the recordings, Alan posted a sample video on YouTube. To see this video, click HERE.

A Scout is HELPFUL .... Several Scouts and Scouters lost their homes in the recent tornadoes. Circle Ten Council has set up a Tornado Relief Fund to assist them. You may find the link for that relief fund here. Please give generously ... like you would want someone to give if YOU lost everything.
