Here is another item I picked up at the Shu Shu Gah Lodge #24 TOR last weekend for my NYS Section Conclave collection. At first I just thought I would have to ask for help on narrowing down the year of the event.
So I started researching on 1997 NE Realignment Page of the OA Section list web site. I was surprised to find only the following seven lodges listed for Section NE-3B:
- Ktemaque #15
- Half Moon #28
- Nacha Nimat #86
- Ganienkeh #19
- Wakpominee #48
- Loon #364
- Onteroraus #402
Ajapeu Lodge #351, is from Vermont and I never thought that it was part of any NY section, unlike the Connecticut Lodges which have been part of NE-3A and now NE-2C have over the years.
The 1999 NE-3B Section Conclave patch does not show Ajapeu Lodge #351, and otherwise matches the lodges listed on the OA Section List.
