Menawngihella 550 s5 (1975)

Mountaineer Area Cncl s2

In 1976, as a fundraiser for their council, Menawngihella Lodge issued a 22-piece set of flaps, each representing a lodge that had never issued an emblem. These were meant to be "space fillers" for OA lodge number collections.

Each emblem was screen-printed on felt and featured a different Indian design and the words "NO PATCH ISSUED". Designed by Joe Mallon, Troy Herron, Paul Helmick, and Jim Walsh, they printed 125 sets, which sold for $12 each!

Fill in your blanks and contribute to Scouting

We have designed and manufactured the fifteen flap shaped emblems shown on this page for use as space fillers in OA number collections. None of these lodges ever issued an emblem before they merged, but each lodge was assigned a unique number by National. Thus, these lodges represent the blank spaces in a numbers set. In addition to the fifteen emblems, shown here, seven other emblems have been manufactured to represent those lodges that never issued an emblem but have had their numbers re­-assigned by National since 1972. Each emblem has been screen-printed on felt and each features a different Indian design. The words "NO PATCH ISSUED" appears on each emblem.

We will give you a complete set of twenty-two space fillers if you contribute $12.00 to Mountaineer Area Council. All money contributed is tax-deductible and will go to camp development. We have paid all manufacturing and design costs and have "purchased" an equivalent number of sets for our use in exchange for this at $12.00 per set. We hope to raise $1000 for our camp through this project.
