Ganeodiyo Lodge #417 Jacket Patch J2

Lodge 417 has also issued a new Jacket Patch. While similar in design to the J1, there are several distinct differences. The two most obvious are the inner band is yellow not orange and the inner border is purple rather than dark blue

2005 Section NE 3A Conclave Patch

I have not previously included Section Conclave issues in the blog, since they are not listed in the Blue Book. However many NY OA collectors collect at least their own section if not other NYS sections as part of their collections. Since the purpose of the blog is to aid collectors of NY OA issues with information about new issues; I’ve decided to begin to include new Section Conclave issues as well.

Below is a scan of the 2005 Section NE 3A Conclave Patch. The Host Lodge was 417 Ganeodiyo. The Conclave was held at Camp Babcock Hovey and the theme was “Back to Treasure Island.”

“To judge from the history of mankind, we shall be compelled to conclude that the fiery and destructive passions of war reign in the human breast with much more powerful sway than the mild and beneficent sentiments of peace; and that to model our political systems upon speculations of lasting tranquillity would be to calculate on the weaker springs of human character.” —Alexander Hamilton (1788)

Section NE-2A 1979 Conclave Neckerchiefs

In 1979, the Section NE 2A conclave was hosted by Lodge #418 Thay-en-da-ne-gea. My understanding was that they had issued a single patch and a neckerchief for the event. It has just been brought to my attention, that there was a second neckerchief for the event. The previously known example was silkscreened on white cloth with red piping. The ‘newer’ variety was silkscreened on blue cloth.

Does anyone know the significance of the 2 colors? Was one a staff or host lodge piece? Any information would be appreciated.

Lodge #417 Ganeodiyo S19 a and b Varieties

Matthew Crance sends word of a 417 variety. Originally the S19 was issued for the 50th Anniversary of the Lodge (hence the GMY Border). However the lodge has continued to use the issue over the years. The main distinguishing point is the original variety was a cloth back (CB). The reordered patch had a plastic back (PB) and therefore is considered a separate variety. YMMV.
