Collecting Ten Mile River Scout Camps and NYC OA Patches Webinar

Here is a link to the webinar I hosted on Collecting Ten Mile River Scout Camps and NYC OA Patches. This is a very high level overview and I try to cover a lot of ground in a short period of time. The first portion of the talk is devoted to TMR, with the final portion to the NYC OA Lodges.

The topic is “Collecting Ten Mile River Scout Camps and OA patches.”

​Bill Mulrenin (aka “NY OA Trader,”, Eagle Scout and Vigil Honor member will lead a discussion about collecting and trading Ten Mile River Scout Camps’ and Order of the Arrow Patches. Bill is a Trustee of the Ten Mile River Scout Camp Museum, chairman of its’ Memorabilia Committee and the New York State Editor for the Blue Book.

I’m particularly interested in any information you may have on Ranachqua Lodge event issues from the 1950’s and any Chapter issues as I do not believe they are well documented.
