Wakanda Lodge #186 Medal

Question MarkAnother item I picked up at the Central New York Trade-O-Ree earlier this month was a Service Award from Wakanda Lodge #186. I had seen these medals in the past, but had never picked one up before.

As you can see, the medal has a green background, and Red WWW and 186, suspended from a yellow and green ribbon.

Based on the design, I suspect this is from the early 1980’s and further that it is a youth award.

My reasoning for this is that the design matches that of the X1 (pictured at right ) which was issued for youth members attending the 1983 NOAC.

Does anyone have any information or paperwork that would confirm this and outline the requirements to earn this award?

Question MarkAnother unusual find at the Central NY TOR in Camp Woodlands was an oddity from Wakanda Lodge #186. Wakanda Lodge #186 merged with Seneca Lodge #394 to form Tkaen Dod Lodge #186 in late 1990 (after the 1990 NOAC).

I have never seen this item before, the story I was told, was that this item was issued just prior to the merger to the Vigil members of the lodge. Again the report was that there were only 15-20 made; with the possible existence of prototypes in other colors.

Can anyone confirm this information or provide other proof as to how and when it was issued?

Until I can fin out more, this will tentatively be identified as a Y issue. This could change to Z or P depending on what can be found out.
