Section NE-4A 2017 Conclave Issues.

The 2017 Section NE-4A 2017 Conclave was hosted by Ho-Nan-Ne-Ho-Ont #165 and held at their Elk Lick Scout Reservation. The theme was “The Order of the Arrow’s Got Talent”.

Chris Carlson advised:

7 patch set, only patches made for the event. Each lodge was represented by its color listed in the stars on the patch. Only sold 15 complete sets. Will not be easy to put set together. Host lodge was yellow being Ho-Nan-Ne-Ho-Ont #165 hosted at Elk Lick Scout Reserve which might be hardest one to come by as there were more host lodge people than any other lodge, and we were limited to 1. Silver boarder was a “section delegate” patch.

Todd Rogers advised:

The 2017 NE-4A Conclave had seven different patches. One border color for each of the lodges in the section and one for section officers. Due to an ordering issue they only ordered 70 per color and didn’t order them in quantities sufficient to enable the sale of full sets with most attendees only receiving their lodge’s border color patch.

Here is the version for the Host Lodge:

Section NE-4A 2017 Conclave Yellow Border Pocket Patch

Section NE-4A 2017 Conclave Yellow Border Pocket Patch

and here is the full set, the border color matches the background of the lodge star.

  • Wyona Lodge #18

  • Ah’Tic Lodge #139
  • Ho-Nan-Ne-Ho-Ont Lodge #165

“The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.” —Justice Joseph Story (1833)

“It is the duty of parents to maintain their children decently, and according to their circumstances; to protect them according to the dictates of prudence; and to educate them according to the suggestions of a judicious and zealous regard for their usefulness, their respectability and happiness.” –James Wilson, Lectures on Law, 1791

“We have therefore to resolve to conquer or die: Our won Country’s Honor, all call upon us for vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world. Let us therefore rely upon the goodness of the Cause, and the aid of the supreme Being, in whose hands Victory is, to animate and encourage us to great and noble Actions.” –George Washington, General Orders, 1776

“It is of great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible; and he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and a third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good disposition.” –Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, 1785

“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
