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

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.

“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

This patch was not listed pictured on John Pannell’s OA Images. I’ve since corrected that omission. This patch is not an OA issue, but was issued by Mohican Council for their 1953. The Wakpominee Lodge refers to a camp facility and not the OA Lodge.

Discovery Haudenosaunee Lodge #19 Wakpominee Chapter eR2000-3? Fall Fellowship Weekend

Here is another unlisted chapter item from Haudenosaunee Lodge #19’s Wakpominee Chapter issued for, I believe the 2000 Fall Fellowship Weekend. The patch is undated, so I am extrapolating here based on other known event issues.

There are several listed chapter patches from Wakpominee Chapter, this is the one of several discoveries of previously unlisted issues that I have posted.

Haudenosaunee Lodge #19 Wakpominee Chapter eR2000-3? Fall Fellowship Weekend

Haudenosaunee Lodge #19 Wakpominee Chapter eR2000-3? Fall Fellowship Weekend

The tentative stats would be:
Wakpominee eX2000-3 LBL R BLK GRN YEL FDL; undated GRN Fall Fellowship Weekend

While undated, here is my reasoning for the 2000 listing:

There are a total of 5 of these small Light blue bordered Triangle-shaped patches already listed. Three for Wakpomine Lodge #48 from 1996 and 1997 and two from Wakpominee Chapter of Haudenosaunee Lodge #19 dated 1999 and 2000 (Spring).

The merger took place in 1999, so the patch can not be from 1998. There is a dated chapter fellowship weekend from 1999 already. there are known fall fellowship patches for the chapter from 2001, 2002.

So my admitted guess is 2000. Can anyone confirm or refute this date?
