Addendum:  Brotherhood Callout

Principle: I will now open our lodge in the Brotherhood Call-Out Ceremony!  The Order of the Arrow is a brotherhood that is respected and admired in the Boy Scouts of America.  Only a very small percentage of scouts are chosen to become a member in our honored organization.
There are three honors in the Order of the Arrow: Ordeal, Brotherhood, and Vigil, our highest honor.  To become a member of the Ordeal, they must be elected by their peers.  Then, they have to go through an ordeal that tests their will, mind, and spirit.  After being an Ordeal member for at least 10 months, they are eligible for another trial to become Brotherhood members. 
I would like to pause now to recognize those members of our lodge who are now eligible for the Brotherhood Ceremony.  If you are present when your name is called, please come forward.
