Tahgajute Lodge #247 J3 Cermonial Team Patch

One of the toughest issues from Tahgajute Lodge #247 is their J3.

Tahgajute Lodge #247 J3 Cermonial Team Patch

Tahgajute Lodge #247 J3 Cermonial Team Patch

The story I’ve been told by several sources, is that this was the 1978 Jacket Patch issued by the camp. Circa two dozen of them had a Red Arrow embroidered on them by the Lodge and they were used to identify the Cermonial team members from the Lodge.

Can anyone provide further details or confirmation on this patch?

Kintecoying Lodge #4 2013 American Indian Activities eR2013-4?

At the Kintecoying Lodge #4 Indian Seminar last fall, there were two patches issued a participant and a staff version.

There was a third item issued pictured below. It is a wooden round issued as a Christmas Ornament by the Lodge to aid in the funding of the event. There were a couple of folk who were wearing them on their pockets that weekend.

Kintecoying Lodge #4 2013 American Indian Activities eR2013-4?

Kintecoying Lodge #4 2013 American Indian Activities eR2013-4?

So the question becomes should this be considered an event issue from the lodge or just a curiosity?

What do you think?
