WPC and HVC Merger Announcement

I understand that the two Lodges, Ktemaque #15 (WPC) and Nacha Nimat #86 (HVC) will merge sometime later in 2021. More information on that as it becomes available. 2021 is the 25th Anniversary Year for Nacha Nimat (1996-2021).

Section NE-3A 1980 Conclave Neckerchiefs

My original post form the 1980 Section NE-3A Conclave showed a pocket patch and a neckerchief. Since than I have acquired two other neckerchiefs issued for the event.

The first one shown below would seem to be the main conclave neckerchief which pictures the design of the pocket patch.

and the pocket patch:

I had previously had the neckerchief shown below:

and another recent acquisition:

The red section appears to be a canvas like material which was added unto a yellow cloth neckerchief. Bob Fenty had advised that a number of these were made on a excess of district camporee neckerchiefs.

Should these last 2 neckerchiefs be more properly listed a Ktemaque Lodge issues? Can anyone confirm if they were only used/available to the host Lodge?

The lodges in Section NE-3 at the time were:

  • Ranachqua Lodge #4
  • Ktemaque Lodge #15
  • Shu-Shu-Gah Lodge #24
  • Half Moon Lodge #28
  • Suanhacky Lodge #49
  • Skanondo Lodge #64
  • Man-A-Hattin Lodge #82
  • Aquehongian Lodge #112
