NOAC: Important Notice Regarding Food Preparation at Founder’s Day

This notice appeared in the April National Events Information Email List email.

During the upcoming 2009 National Order of the Arrow Conference many lodges are planning to take part in the various activities during the Founders Day events. In the past, lodges have decided to create a display or booth which represented specific items, traditions, and customs that were unique to their home council and lodge. In doing so, some lodges have prepared foods and beverages representative of their region. While this has been a great way for many lodges to share their unique qualities about their home with the rest of the country, this tradition will be changing this year.

Due to the increased awareness and concern for the restrictions and regulations governing the delivery and preparation of food for public consumption, the conference management has elected to not allow lodges and individual participants to deliver and prepare foods to the 2009 National Order of the Arrow Conference. As an alternative, lodges will be able to distribute commercially prepared and prepackaged food products that do not require any refrigeration or preparation. In addition, open container beverages will not be allowed to be served.

Thank you for your understanding with these policy changes and we hope you will have a great experience at the 2009 National Order of the Arrow Conference.
