Section NE-3C 1997 Conclave Additional Issues

conclaveI posted on the final 1997 Section NE-3C Conclave a few days ago, and Roy Weatherbee added a comment about some additional issues.

In addition to the patch, there is also an embroidered neckerchief, and (for the stamp collectors) an irst day cover / envelope with a Loon Lodge 50th anniversary cancellation stamp that also reads: “NE-3C Conclave Station, Paul Smiths, NY 12970, August 23, 1997″

I believe there may also have been a pin, but I do not have it.

Check out the original post for the rest of his comments.

He later sent along scans of the other images from the event.
