Welcome to the website for the Etowah Chapter of Catawba Lodge 459. We are the Order of the Arrow Chapter that serves the Etowah District of the Mecklenburg County Council. We serve the troops located in the Southeast of Charlotte and in the towns of Matthews and Mint Hill. The purpose of this website is to provide up to date information about the Chapter and the lodge.

Etowah is a Muskogee word derived from italwa meaning "town". Because of this the Etowah Chapter tries to be a community for all Arrowmen in the district. Feel free to attend our events and Chapter Meetings.

Etowah chapter had a great time at Spring Fellowship and brought home two awards. The spirit of the chapter was evident all weekend starting with campfire and the glow in the dark "Etoball" and glow sticks and continuing on Saturday with Etowah green feathers being clipped to members of other chapters, cars, buildings and anything else that couldn't get out of the way. Also Etowater made a return to the fellowship for the first time in many years. The Quest for the Green Arrow was very close with Etowah and Apache tied 3-3 after the quest events. The outcome was decided in the traditional scout way with a best of three game of rock paper scissors. This is the second time Etowah has won the Green Arrow and will be looking forward to Fall Fellowship and the opportunity for a three-peat and to retire the Green Arrow.
