“[N]o part of the property of any individual can, with justice, be taken from him, or applied to public uses, without his own consent, or that of the representative body of the people. In fine, the people of this commonwealth are not controllable by any other laws than those to which their constitutional representative body have given their consent.” –John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776

Read “Scouting With a Neckerchief”
BY COMMODORE W. E. Longfellow at:

Our guest, Dr. James Flatt shares his extensive neckerchief collection. As one of the oldest parts of the Scout uniform, neckerchiefs are often hard to find and identify. However, almost lodges have had a Neckerchief. What does yours look like?

– When was the last time you wore a neckerchief?
– Do you remember those Scout shirts without collars?

You may find a neckerchief with the lodge flap or lodge patch sewn in it. Why? It may very well be a conference contingent neckerchief–not just something a Scouts mom made!
