Half Moon Lodge #28 J3 Dance Team Patch

One of my acquisitions from the Western New York Traders Association TOR in Williamsville a couple of weekends ago was a Dance Team Jacket Patch from Half Moon Lodge #28, the J3. This image is not currently on OA Images, but I’ll be sending a copy of the scan to John.

The Blue Book describes this as:
J3 RED R BLK – – GRN WWW; RED 28; 177 mm twill oval
I’d delete oval from the description, my mint version is round or certainly not off round more than 1-2 mm.

Lowanne Nimat Lodge #219 – A Tale of Three Flaps S3 Charter Member

Previous entries in this series, referred to the first two flaps issued by Lowanne Nimat Lodge #219, both of them were issued to commemorate the 2010 National Jamboree and the BSA Centennial. This flap, currently only available to dues paid members of the Lodge, and limited to 2 per person is considered the charter member flap. Chronologically, it is the third flap issued by the lodge and was not available until sometime after the Jamboree.

You will also note that it is the first flap to show the lodge totem, the red fox.

I had previously written about a historical set issued by Kittan Lodge #364 in honor of the 100th Anniversary of the BSA. Here is the second in the set of nine. This one commemorates one of the predecessor lodges – Sisilija Lodge #19.

This flap will have two designations, one for Kittan Lodge, and one for Sisilija Lodge.

Lowanne Nimat Lodge #219 – A Tale of Three Flaps S2

Last week I wrote about the first flap from Lowanne Nimat Lodge #219.  That flap was available to lodge members via pre-order and distributed prior to the Jamboree.  The second flap was only available to Jamboree contingent members and not distributed until the contingent was on the way to the Jambo.

The only difference between the first flap and the S2 is the border color, which is a light turquoise in the S2.
