Lowanne Nimat Lodge #219 Centennial Flap S14

Lowanne Nimat Lodge #219 has issued as set of four flaps as part of a 100th Anniversary of the Order of the Arrow Centennial Set. The top flap is also being issued separately outside of the framed numbered set. The individual flaps are unmarked and only held to the backing with a piece of double-sided tape, so I expect all of the flaps may be seen separately “in the wild.”

The flap pictured below is also being issued outside of the set.

“This is the issue: whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them for ourselves. … Somewhere a perversion has taken place. Our natural, inalienable rights are now considered to be a dispensation of government, and freedom has never been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp as it is at this moment.” Ronald Reagan

Section NE-3A $100 Club Flap Set

A while back, I posted one of my Look Back posts, highlighting a NY OA posting from the depths of the blog archives. That one was on Section NE-3A $100 Club Flaps, the original post can be found here. In that post, Matt Crance sent along 2 images of two flaps issued by the Section to spur interest and bidding in the Section Auction, a dark blue bordered flap and a green bordered flap. He also noted there was a third yellow bordered version which he had seen but did not possess. Chris Carlson saw this post and sent along a scan of all 5 flaps issued by the Section in that Series. It had been lost in one of the deeper recesses of my InBox, but I finally managed to resurrect it.

“The principle of the Constitution is that of a separation of legislative, Executive and Judiciary functions, except in cases specified. If this principle be not expressed in direct terms, it is clearly the spirit of the Constitution, and it ought to be so commented and acted on by every friend of free government.” –Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, 1797
