Look Back – Oldest Ty-Ohni Lodge #95 Neckerchief?

In honor of the Seneca Waterways Council Historical Society TOR, here is a post from eight years ago.

Rob Cunningham shares another interesting find from Ty-Ohni Lodge #95.  The question becomes is it an official issue?  If so, it would likely be listed as the N0.5.

As Rob tells it…

2 more interesting items were donated to the council historical society- one more 1952 NOAC adviser neckerchief (we thought only 3 existed but now a fourth has surfaced) and another one of the red and white neckerchiefs with the crude Ty-Ohni embroidery which we previously had thought was a one-of-a-kind item.  To date it is the earliest Neckerchief with “Ty-Ohni” on it aside from issues with patches.  Each time we acquired one of these neckerchiefs they came together so they are likely both from the same time period.

Ty-Ohni Lodge #95 N0.5?

Ty-Ohni Lodge #95 N0.5?

Anyone have more information on this neckerchief or one for trade or sale?

“I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.” –Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Charles Jarvis, 1820

“If it were to be asked, What is the most sacred duty and the greatest source of our security in a Republic? The answer would be, An inviolable respect for the Constitution and Laws — the first growing out of the last. … A sacred respect for the constitutional law is the vital principle, the sustaining energy of a free government.” –Alexander Hamilton, Essay in the American Daily Advertiser, 1794

“The state governments have a full superintendence and control over the immense mass of local interests of their respective states, which connect themselves with the feelings, the affections, the municipal institutions, and the internal arrangements of the whole population. They possess, too, the immediate administration of justice in all cases, civil and criminal, which concern the property, personal rights, and peaceful pursuits of their own citizens.” –Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833
