“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

Another image from Mia Hubbert, this one for the Section NE-7B 2009 Conclave which was hosted by Half Moon Lodge #28 and held at Camp Tri-Mount. The theme of the event was “Gather the Clan.” This is an image of the conclave program. Mia notes that the program is mis-dated 2008, which was before Section NE-7B existed. It was actually listed for the 2009 Conclave.
