History Edit

In January 1995 the Long Rivers Council and the Indian Trails Council merged to form the Connecticut Rivers Council #66. In the Spring of that year a joint lodge meeting between Eluwak Lodge 59 and Sassacus Lodge 10 was held at Camp Tadma in Bozrah.

The name Tschitani was chosen as the name of the new lodge. In the fall of 1995 a joint lodge conclave was held at June Norcross Webster Scout Reservation in Ashford this was the beginning of a new strong lodge. An Official Charter was given to the Tschitani Lodge 10 on January 1, 1996.

In 1997, the Lodge was moved from Section NE-1B, which serves most of Mass., Rhode Island, and Connecticut, to Section NE-3A; which served the Greater New York Councils and most of Connecticut. In 2000, with the realignment of the Northeast Region, Tschitani Lodge bid farewell to Section NE-3A (which was re-named Section NE-2C) and returned to NE-1B.

In 2001, Tschitani Lodge hosted the Section NE-1B Conclave at June Norcross Webster Scout Reservation. The theme for the weekend was "The Journey Starts from Within". Also in 2001, Patrick Boyd was elected to serve as the Northeast Region Chief through the end of 2001.

At the 2002 National Order of the Arrow Conference, Patrick Boyd was recognized with the Order of the Arrow Distinguished Service Award.

In 2003, Tschitani Lodge created its first strategic plan, citing ways the lodge will better serve the council through leadership, service and financial support. The lodge also amended its bylaws to create two Lodge Vice Chiefs, and amend the electoral procedures.

In 2004, Tschitani had a banner year, receiving the 2004 NOAC Spirit Award. As well as the Lodge Ceremonies Team received Honor Medals at the 2004 NOAC. At that same conference, David Moskal was recognized with the Order of the Arrow Distinguished Service Award.

In 2006, Tschitani was recognized once again with the NOAC Spirit Award at the largest National Order of the Arrow Conference in the history of the OA. At that same conference, Jeff Godley and Gil Rogers were both recognized with the Order of the Arrow Distinguished Service Award.
