Section NE-2A 2012 Conclave Issues

This is the first year of the new Northeast Region OA section alignments.

The first conclave was hosted by Owaneco Lodge #313 Paugassett 553 and the theme was “World Wide Weekend”. It was held at Edmund D. Strang Scout Reservation (Thanks to Rob Higgens for the correction).

There were two three issues that I am aware of.

A pocket patch for all participants and via the trading post.

There was also a limited patch for the Staff and Very Important Arrowman functions.

Section NE-2A 2012 Staff/VIA Patch

The staff patch is currently a need of mine.

One should as a rule respect public opinion in so far as is necessary to avoid starvation and to keep out of prison, but anything that goes beyond this is voluntary submission to an unnecessary tyranny, and is likely to interfere with happiness in all kinds of ways. …Bertrand Russell (1872 – 1970),

Look Back – Wakanda Lodge #186 Service Medal

Five years ago, I posted on a Sevice Medal from Wakanda Lodge #186.

Based on the design, I suspect this is from the early 1980’s and further that it is a youth award. My reasoning for this is that the design matches that of the X1 (pictured at right ) which was issued for youth members attending the 1983 NOAC.

Wakanda Lodge #186 Service Medal Youth?


Does anyone have any documentation for this item? The requirements to earn the award, etc.

“Born in other countries, yet believing you could be happy in this, our laws acknowledge, as they should do, your right to join us in society, conforming, as I doubt not you will do, to our established rules. That these rules shall be as equal as prudential considerations will admit, will certainly be the aim of our legislatures, general and particular.” –Thomas Jefferson
