Section NE-3C 1997 Conclave

conclaveThe third and final Section NE-3C Conclave was hosted by Loon Lodge #364 and held at their Camp Bedford which was also the 50th Anniversary of Loon Lodge.  The Conclave theme was Mindful of Our High Traditions.

The only issue that I am aware of from that event is a pocket patch.

  1. 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.

    Interestingly, although Ajapeu Lodge #351 (Vermont) had been moved out of this section into NE-1A back in 1995, they were still invited to this event and their lodge number included on the patch and neckerchief. This was done again in 1998 as well, though I heard rumors that after that the section was told by national not to be including lodges outside of their section.

  2. Cory Haynes says:

    There was a gold 50 participation pin that was pinned over the 50 on the participation patch that has a black loop.
