Kawida Lodge Mike Butcher Memorial Award Form
The Mike Butcher Memorial Award is given annually to the year’s most outstanding youth member from Kawida Lodge #480. The award is given in memory of Mike Butcher, who tragically lost his life in 1972. Mike was a member of Troop 14, which was chartered by the Second Presbyterian Church in Lexington, Kentucky. While on a canoeing trip with his troop, Mike’s canoe overturned in some high-water rapids in the “Little Narrows” section of the Rockcastle River, and tragically Mike was trapped under the water and drowned. Mike’s death was not only a great loss for his family and friends but was also a great loss for the lodge. The award was first given in 1972 to both Mike Butcher (posthumously) and to his co recipient Tim Crowley, and has been given annually to a deserving youth member ever since. Mike was a great human being. He was the ideal Scout, Arrowman, and friend. He wasn’t someone to always sought the glory of the limelight, but rather he was someone who was always there in the crowd when you needed him. He always had a smile and a handshake for you no matter what the task. It’s hard to believe that it’s been forty years since Mike left us. His short life exemplified the purpose and intent of our great and honored Order as set forth by our founder, Dr. E. Urner Goodman, and his dedication to the Order of the Arrow has been … and always will be … an example for all of us to follow.
