OA Centennial 2015 Arrowtour – Northeast Region Thank You Segment

I had previously written about an OA Centennial 2015 Arrowtour Northeast Region Patch where there were individual segments produced for each of the 4 Regions. There was also a version given out by the Arrowtour staff in each Region as a thank you for those who helped in the set up and staffing of the event.

The Northeast Region Thank You Segment is shown below.

Lowanne Nimat Lodge #219 Arrowtour 2015

Arrowtour was part of the 2015 OA Centennial Celebration. ArrowTour was an interactive event for Scouts, volunteers, and Scouting alumni that traveled throughout the country during the summer of 2015. One of the stops was at Camp Woodlands a bit north of Syracuse, NY with Lowanne Nimat as a host.

These patches were both ordered by Lowanne Nimat Lodge #219, but the current convention is to not consider them as lodge issues since it was a National design which could be personalized by the individual or entity which ordered them.

Maybe not an ‘official’ issue, but one many may wish to collect.

Section NE-7B 2009 Conclave Program

Another image from Mia Hubbert, this one for the Section NE-7B 2009 Conclave which was hosted by Half Moon Lodge #28 and held at Camp Tri-Mount. The theme of the event was “Gather the Clan.” This is an image of the conclave program. Mia notes that the program is mis-dated 2008, which was before Section NE-7B existed. It was actually listed for the 2009 Conclave.

Ja Di Gon Sa — The Troop Honor Society

Gene Berman had a neckerchief he had recently acquired he was unsure of the provenance. A little research by Ian Pinnavaia revealed that it was from an old Troop Honor Society located in Queens, NY.

As a Scout in Troop 273, there were two honor societies where one could earn membership. The first was a local Troop honor society: Ja Di Gon Sa. The second was the Boy Scout’s national honor society: Order of the Arrow (OA). Troop 273 was unusual in that most Troops did not have their own local honor society.

Ja Di Gon Sa was the honor society for Troop 273. Like Order of the Arrow, scouts were voted into the society by their fellow scouts. And also like OA, Ja Di Gon Sa was inspired by native American legends and lore. Ja Di Gon Sa used the Iroquois as the basis for society legend and purpose, while Order of the Arrow used the Lenni Lenape for their legend and purpose. Although I am still sworn to secrecy about both Societies, I can let you know that Ja Di Gon Sa involved the Iroquois False Face Society.

You can read more about it here.
