Section NE-5 1991 Conclave

The 1991 Section NE-5 Conclave was held at Camp Bucoco, hosted by Kuskitannee Lodge #168 and the theme was Stepping Stones to the Future.

As far as I know, there was only a single pocket patch issued for the event.

“A people may want a free government; but if, from insolence, or carelessness, or cowardice, or want of public spirit, they are unequal to the exertions necessary for preserving it; if they will not fight for it when it is directly attacked; if they can be deluded by the artifices used to cheat them out of it; if by momentary discouragement or temporary panic, or a fit of enthusiasm for an individual they can be induced to lay their liberties at the feet of even a great man, or trust him with powers which enable him to subvert their institutions; in all cases they are more or less unfit for liberty; and though it may be for their good to have had it even for a short time, they are unlikely long to enjoy it.” – John Stuart Mill, Essays on Representative Government, 1861 & 1862
