Since 1999, the National OA Committee has annually selected lodges from each region to
receive matching service grants. In 2020, four lodges in councils across the nation were
chosen to receive a combined total of $10,900 in matching grants via the OA Service Grant

The Southern Region’s recipient is Washita Lodge #288 of the Cherokee Area Council, headquartered in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Washita Lodge is a member of SR-8.

They will receive $3,300 to install solar-generated electricity and LED lights at Camp

Congratulations Washita Lodge!
