Late last year, members of Ktemaque and Nacha Nimat Lodges gathered at Camp Bullowa for the first official meeting of their new lodge.
The new name for the Greater Hudson Valley Council Order of the Arrow lodge will be “Mahicantuck Lodge #15, W.W.W.” and it’s totem will be that of the historic “Mastadon”, where remains have been found in the Hudson Valley area.

They have now issued 2 flaps.

Ktemaque Lodge #15 and Nacha Nimat Lodge #86 Merge to Form Mahicantuck Lodge

I had previously written about the merger of Westchester Putnam Council and Hudson Valley Council to form the Greater Hudson Valley Council. Here is the information on the new lodge from the council newsletter.

On Sun., Nov. 14th, over 65 members of Ktemaque and Nacha Nimat Lodges gathered at Camp Bullowa for the first official meeting of our new lodge.
The new name for the Greater Hudson Valley Council Order of the Arrow lodge will be “Mahicantuck Lodge #15, W.W.W.” and it’s totem will be that of the historic “Mastadon”, where remains have been found in the Hudson Valley area.

The new officers were elected at this meeting.

No word yet on the first issues.

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
  • Shinnecock Lodge #360
  • Buckskin Lodge #412
  • Nooteeming Lodge #443
