Area 2-A 1959 Pocket Patch

conclaveBack in early 2007, I wrote up what was to become one of my first posts on conclave issues; the 1959 Area 2A Conclave.

At the time I was more concerned with a leather slide and trying to determine if it should be considered a Nooteeming Lodge issue or a Conclave issue.

George Jennings confirmed that it was in fact a conclave gift to all in attendance from Nooteeming, the host lodge.

One item that was not pictured in that post, was a pocket patch also issued for the event.
