Santee Lodge Chapter Patches

R1 - Chicora Chapter


Around 1977 Linwood Wiggins who was the chapter advisor for Chicora Chapter had a patch printed up. It is not clear what approval he had from the lodge but the patches were sold to Chicora members. Judging by the scarcity of these patches today the order must have been for a small number. The design he used was a stock design that was also used on some late 1970s fellowship patches from Muscogee Lodge 221 in Columbia.

For over 20 years no other chapters came out with a patch until Atakwa Chapter had one made for the 60th anniversary of the lodge in 1998. The design was by chapter member Randy Dargan. The executive committee did bless this order and apparently was willing to allow other chapters to make patches but the offer was never taken up. Two hundred of the patches were ordered and they were sold to Atakwa Chapter members during OA Week of 1998 for $3 each.
X1 - Chicora Chapter Chicora chapter ordered patches with approval in 2004.  This patch was paid for by the father of a chapter member and the order of 100 patches were sold to chapter members only not through the lodge store.

As a youth I had a “Old BNew York BSA Mess Kit shown above. I let a nephew use it when he was in scouts. The leather holster was missing when I got it back. I am interested in getting a new holdster made. Would you be so kind as to make a pattern of the holster and send to me? I will be happy to reimburse you for your trouble.
