“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual — or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” —Samuel Adams (1781)

Section E-16 2022 NOAC Flap

Another image from Ben Obernesser, this one for NOAC 2022. Section NE-3B for the last several NOAC’s has done a set of Section flaps to commemorate the NOAC. A flap was issued for each Lodge in the Section with a shared design and having the Lodge name. For 2022 only a single flap was issued containing the totems of the individual lodges making up the section.

With the Project Magellan realignment the old Section NE-3B is now E-16.

Section NE-3A 2010 Conclave SMY Pocket Patch

At the Allegheny Highlands Council TOR last weekend, I came across a new variant of the pocket patch issued for the Section NE-3A 2010 Conclave. The 2010 Section NE-3A Conclave was held at Camp Russell and hosted by Ga Hon Ga Lodge #34. The theme was Arrow Wars 2010.

This patch has a SMY border. While the scanner washes it out a bit it is definitely SMY and not the previously known white border.

Can anyone confirm the use of the different border colors?

I’ll update the original post for the Section NE-3A 2010 Conclave with the information.

Section NE-3 1988(?) Training Round

Frank Rickenbaugh sent along this image asking if it belonged to the 1988 Section NE-3 Conclave as it was the only year NE-3 was used rather that NE-3A.

My recollection was Mark Belli was involved with its production when he was either Section Chief or Section Training Chairman prior to his time as Northeast Region Chief.

Area 2-A 1949 Conclave Staff(?) Neckerchief

Over 10 years ago I wrote a post on the Area 2A 1949 Conclave, in it a reference a neckerchief but did not picture one.

Frank Rickenbaugh sent along an image of the neckerchief. In my original post I wrote that the patch was also found on a blue neckerchief.

He was told that this was a staff neckerchief, Can anyone confirm if this is the case?
