Around 1958 Area 2A and 2J were preparing to split. Area 2J held at least one conclave/meeting in 1957. But, it apparently did not formerly organize and/or hold another conclave on its own until some time in the early 1960’s.
There was an Area 2A Conclave in 1959. I’m not sure where it was held or what lodges (officially) were in attendance, or who was the host lodge?
The slide would lead me to think it was at Camp Nooteeming and 443 the host.
However the slide could also be a lodge contingent piece since the design is different than the neckerchief nor does it mention the conclave theme .
I understand that there was a patch and a neckerchief issued. I have the neckerchief pictured below, and also a slide which is a different design than the neckerchief.
Can you provide any information or clarifications?
Update: Nov. 7, 2009
There was also a pocket patch issued for the event.
