Area 2-H 1972 Conclave Neckerchief

Tom Wadnola has set along a disc full of scans of NYS OA Area and Section Conclaves. Here is a neckerchief from the 1972 Area 2-H Conclave hosted by Otahnagon Lodge #172.

Does anyone know if there was a pocket patch or any other issue from this conclave?  Or have an extra of this neckerchief  to trade?


Another flaw in the human character is that everybody wants to build and nobody wants to do maintenance.

    One of the Georgia lodges, if I remember correctly, also used this theme for a section conclave. However, they translated it into their “native language”.

    The theme became, “Aim High. Serve Y’all.”

    We’ll leave it to the grammar cops to note how this changes the meaning of the theme.

    I need to correct myself…

    It was Unali’yi lodge from South Carolina, as host / service lodge, that used this as the theme for the 1989 Dixie Fellowship.
