“We are either a United people, or we are not. If the former, let us, in all matters of general concern act as a nation, which have national objects to promote, and a national character to support. If we are not, let us no longer act a farce by pretending to it.” —George Washington (1785)


Look Back – Area 2-G 1969 NOAC Contingent Neckerchief

As we get ready for the NOAC later this month and see the rush of new issues for the event, I’ve been seeking information if there will be issues for any of the NYS Sections. Four years ago I posted about an early Area issue for the 1969 NOAC.

Area 2-G issued several NOAC Contingent pieces over the years. I had previously written on their contingent patch for the 1971 NOAC. This time, we have a neckerchief issued for the 1969 NOAC held at the University of Indiana.

1969 Area 2-D Conclave Issues

Scott Downs sent along scans of three items issued for the 1969 Area 2-D Conclave hosted by Loon Lodge #364 and held at their Camp Bedford. The theme was Boypower Manpower.

First is the pocket patch:

There was also a neckerchief with the pocket patch sewn on:

and finally a neckerchief slide:

The slide is a current need of mine.

According to Rob Higgens’ OA Section List web site, the following lodges were in Area 2-D at that time:

  • Sisilija Lodge #19
  • Half Moon Lodge #28
  • Wakpominee Lodge #48
  • Nischa Nimat Lodge #181

The 1969 Area 2-G Conclave was hosted by Ko Nosh I Oni Lodge #34 and held at Camp Kingsley their Council Camp.

There are two issues known for this event, a pocket patch and a neckerchief.

and the neckerchief.

Has anyone seen any other issues for this conclave?
