Heard Around the State.

I have several information nodules that have been passed on to me from around the state. If you have any new information about your New York Lodge or Chapter, please send it along to share with the rest of the readers of the blog. As always, I’m looking to trade for or buy any new issues from New York State OA Lodges and Chapters.

In no particular order:

  • Buckskin Lodge #412 will be issuing a patch for their recent lodge banquet held at the end of December 2006. The patch was limited to one per attendee. Those who were at the banquet drew a number at random and that will be the number of their particular patch. I understand that the numbers will be directly embroidered into the design as have several of their previous lodge and chapter issues. Looking for a scan from one of the Buckskin brothers when this is issued.
  • Suanhacky Lodge #49 also issued a dinner patch from its banquest a couple of weeks back and subsequently issued a new regular issue flap. I hope to have images and both in hand shortly.
  • Cory Haynes from Loon Lodge #364 recently advised that “I just found out today from the Loon Lodge Advisor that the sunset flap will be issued 1 per current 2006 registered lodge member, and not be available for the public (unfortunately this is what the youth voted to do).” Looking for a scan of this one too (and a trade would be nice).
  • Separately I have also heard that Kittan Lodge #364 will be voting (re-voting?) on whether to use the number #19 or 364. Also they are considering amongst several designs for their first flap.
  • George Jennings brings word from Otahnagon Lodge #172 that while they issued an event patch for last years banquet, there was no patch issued for this years event.
  • Half Moon #28 has also requested designs from its members for a new trading flap. No word on when it will be voted on.
  • Ktemaque Lodge #15 has issued 2 new patches, no word on what type or design. Does anyone else have any information on these?
  • Shinnecock Lodge #360 will issue a special 60th Anniversary Lodge Flap in 2007. This special flap will reportedly replace the normal lodge flap during this 2007 only. It will be issued to new brothers at the conclusion of their Ordeal Weekend.

    Hi Bill-
    Lodge 219 issued (over the last few years) a series of award patches called “Shadow Clan” patches. They could be earned by lodge members in a sequential fashion. There is a pre-determined number of points needed to earn each (1 per year). There were a limited number given retroactively to those who would have likely earned them between 1999-2002 (approx.). Each has the same design b ut have a different border color. I believe there are 5-6 of them. I need to get to work earning them.

    Also, the lodge is producing a Winter Banquet patch mailed to each attendee (members and non-members) following the banquet. However, the same was supposed to happen for the 2006 Amangi Mawinsin (Spring Fellowship)…I have not seen that one yet and am doubtful if it ever will.

    My best-
