Suanhacky Lodge #49 2006 NOAC Delegate Set S58 X38

As I posted yesterday, Suanhacky Lodge realized they were short on their Gold Mylar bordered delegate sets. What no one realized until late at NOAC, was that the reorder had yellow borders and details not GMY. So their are now two new Delegate sets. The second set contains 9 LED Lights; 4 on the flap and 5 on the chevron. It is pictured below, you can make out the holes for the lights better in the flames on the flap. The lights in the chevron are 4 in the front of the fire truck and one in the doorway on the extreme right of the patch.

Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 Showandasse Chapter eA1971

I recently acquired one of my chapter needs from Showandasse Chapter of Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24.  In its first incarnation, Showandasee Chapter existed from circa 1952 until June 1979.  My recent acquisition the eA1971 is pictured below:

Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 Showandasse Chapter eA1971

Many of Showandasee’s event patches were in memory of brothers from the chapter.

My Shownadasee needs include A2, J1, N2, eX1957, eX1961, eX1977-1b and eX1977-2.

Can anyone help me out?
