Troop 16 Vigil members

Published by under Order of the Arrow on August 20, 2017

Very early this morning, Troop 16 had two members honored with Vigil in the Order of the Arrow!

Vigil is an honor that is given to those who have been active as a Brotherhood member for at least 2 years in the OA, and they must be nominated by their peers. This year, there were only 8 chosen in all of Denver Area Council, and our troop had two of those.

Dr. Boyd was given the Vigil name Wischiki Meteu, which means Busy Medicine Man, and Kyle P was given the Vigil name Wulantowagan, which means He Who Has Good Spirits. Lets congratulate them on this honor!
