Section NE-2D 1988 Last Conclave

The 1988 Section NE-2D Conclave was the last conclave for this group of lodges. With the Northeast Region OA Realignment, it is the last time the NE-2D designation was used by a Section containing New York Lodges.

The Cocnlave was hosted by Onteroraus Lodge #402 at Henderson Scout Reservation.  To the best of my knowledge, there were two issues for the event.

A pocket patch, with the design of the 402R1 in it.

and a neckerchief:

According to the OA Section List, the five lodges which comprised Section NE-2D were:

  • Otahnagon Lodge #172
  • Wakanda Lodge #186
  • Seneca Lodge #394
  • Onteroraus Lodge #402
  • Gajuka Lodge #477

Thanks to Tom Wadnola  for a scan of the neckerchief.  I need one for my collection if anyone has one available.

We have heard of the impious doctrine in the old world, that the people were made for kings, not kings for the people. Is the same doctrine to be revived in the new, in another shape…?” —James Madison
