Lowanne Nimat Lodge #219 Orange Centennial Flap S16

Lowanne Nimat Lodge #219 has issued as set of four flaps as part of a 100th Anniversary of the Order of the Arrow Centennial Set. The top flap is also being issued separately outside of the framed numbered set. While this orange flap is only being issued within the set, the individual flaps are unmarked and only held to the backing with a piece of double-sided tape, so I expect all of the flaps may be seen separately “in the wild.”

Here is the third flap in the set:

“The difference between the path toward greater freedom or bigger government is the difference between success and failure; between opportunity and coercion; between faith in a glorious future and fear of mediocrity and despair; between respecting people as adults, each with a spark of greatness, and treating them as helpless children to be forever dependent; between a drab, materialistic world where Big Brother rules by promises to special interest groups, and a world of adventure where everyday people set their sights on impossible dreams, distant stars, and the Kingdom of God. We have the true message of hope for America.” –Ronald Reagan

I had previously posted about the Participant Patch for the 2014 Kintecoying Lodge #4 Indian Seminar. I wanted to share the images of the two patches created for the event.

Here is the second patch issued, the Staff Patch. This year was the first time the image of a woman dancer has been used in the event patch. The outfit style is Jingle Dress.

“This is the real task before us: to reassert our commitment as a nation to a law higher than our own, to renew our spiritual strength. Only by building a wall of such spiritual resolve can we, as a free people, hope to protect our own heritage and make it someday the birthright of all men.” –Ronald Reagan

“That [tyrannical government] power is absolute, minute, regular, provident and mild. It would be like the authority of a parent if, like that authority, its object was to prepare men for manhood; but it seeks, on the contrary, to keep them in perpetual childhood: it is well content that the people should rejoice, provided they think of nothing but rejoicing. For their happiness such a government willingly labors, but it chooses to be the sole agent and the only arbiter of that happiness; it provides for their security, foresees and supplies their necessities, facilitates their pleasures, manages their principal concerns, directs their industry, regulates the descent of property, and subdivides their inheritances: what remains, but to spare them all the care of thinking and all the trouble of living?” –French historian Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859)

“It is sufficiently obvious, that persons and property are the two great subjects on which Governments are to act; and that the rights of persons, and the rights of property, are the objects, for the protection of which Government was instituted. These rights cannot well be separated.” –James Madison, Speech at the Virginia Convention, 1829

One of my acquisitions at the 19th Annual Kintecoying TOR last weekend was a variation need of the Wakpominee Lodge 1994 NOAC S8a and S8b.

There are distinct differences in both the blue sky and green grass.

“This is the issue: whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them for ourselves. … Somewhere a perversion has taken place. Our natural, inalienable rights are now considered to be a dispensation of government, and freedom has never been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp as it is at this moment.” Ronald Reagan
