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. Please feel free to take a look around. 

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.

Fall Fellowship

posted Sep 8, 2017, 9:13 PM by Alan Gaines

Catawba Lodge will be hosting their 2017 Fall Fellowship at Belk Scout Camp from October 6th to October 8th. All of the Arrowmen in the Etowah Chapter are encouraged to attend this event. This Lodge outing is different from the Ordeals, where the focus is on Service, because the entire weekend is about Fellowship. During the weekend the Lodge opens up the camp's Indian Village and holds its annual patch auction. There are also games and competitions between the Chapters as well as other great camp activities. Below is the proposed schedule for the weekend. The final draft will be provided at the event.

Fall Fellowship is also the weekend that the terms for the current Lodge and Chapter officers end and new ones are elected. If you are interested in running for a position then you will need to let the Adviser for that position know as soon as possible.

Registration for this event is due by Wednesday September 27, 2017.
