I’ve always liked the neckerchiefs from Manatoanna Lodge, and have this one in my collection. Five bidders wanted to add this to their collections too. Three of them stuck in at over $ 30.00, with the winning bidder getting it for an even $ 40.00.

With 36+ hours to go, where do you think this will end up?

1982 Section NE-2B Conclave

conclaveThe 1982 Section NE-2B Conclave was was held at Camp Portaferry.  The theme of the event was “Kindle the Cheerfulness Within You.”  From the totem on the patch, it would appear that the Conclave was hosted by Adirondack Lodge #357,  however Manatoanna Lodge #461 merged with Adirondack Lodge #357 merged in June 1982 to form Gosh-Wha-Gono Lodge #120.

Was this Adirondack Lodges last activity or Gosh Wha Gono’s first?

There were at least three items issued for this event; a pocket patch

and there was also a neckerchief issued for the event.

Thanks to Tom Wadnola for the images.  I believe that these were the only two issues for this conclave.  Does anyone else have any other issues?

Update March 2017:
An image from Mark Eddy, this one is a leather patch from the 1972 Area 2-G Conclave and he advises that it was used as a staff issue.
