1995 Section NE-2C Conclave Issues

The 1995 Section NE-2C Conclave was held at Camp Alpine and hosted by Aquehongian Lodge #112, the theme for the weekend was Continuing the Higher Vision.

There were four patches and a decal issued for the event.

There were three pocket patches, a regular patch for participants with a purple border, a silver mylar version and a gold mylar version.

Here is the Participant version.

There was also a GMY bordered version which I believe was a COC or VIA issue. Can anyone confirm the reason for the GMY border?

Nischa Nimat Lodge #181 Belt Buckle

Belt Buckle

I’ve posted about Belt Buckles from NYS Lodges from time to time, here is one from Nischa Nimat Lodge #181.  This is a smaller buckle only measuring about 2 1/4 inches wide and only able to accommodate a belt approximately 1 1/4 inches wide.

I had previously written about the 2001 Section NE-2B conclave which was hosted by Lenapehoking Lodge #IX and held at their Camp Lewis. The theme for the weekend was “2001 A Scouting OAdyssey.”

Recently I was able to obtain the jacket patch issued for the event and found out that there were Gold Mylar-bordered versions of both the pocket and jacket patches issued for the COC.

Northeast Region Order of the Arrow Hurricane Sandy Silver Mylar Border

I had previously posted about a pair of patches available by making donations to the Northeast Region Order of the Arrow Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund Program.

Hurricane Sandy caused lots of damage all across the Northeast Region, and we, as Arrowmen, feel that we need to help. In addition to homes being affected, Scout camps across the region have also suffered severe damage. Many camps are closed until further notice as it is too soon for the extent of the damage and destruction to even be assessed.
Your Regional Key 3 is calling upon individual Arrowmen, Lodges, and Sections to join us in our aggressive campaign to raise money that will be awarded to lodges to help their councils complete projects at their camps. We believe that the powerful combination of money and manpower from members of the Order of the Arrow can overcome any devastation that Sandy left behind. This money will be awarded in a process similar to the National OA Sservice Grants.

The goal was raised several times

Our new total….$29,591, so, the goal goes up to $35,000. We can’t quit as there are a number of camps that need our help.

Please consider making a donation or buying patches. We have plenty left and here is a link to the form:http://northeast.oa-bsa.org/images/stories/forms/hurricane-sandy-fund.pdf

Here is the Silver Mylar border for a $100 donation.

Sherrie Giattino sends along word of second of two Death flaps issued by Ranachqua Lodge #4 in advance of the April 2013 merger of the five GNYC Lodges. I wrote about the first previously.

They share the same design, but this one comes with a certificate of authenticity which is numbered from 1 to 100.
