History

In 1951 the lodge issued its first patch, an oval patch measuring about four inches tall. The orange twill patch has “WWW”, the lodge name, lodge number, lodge totem (turtle), and an Indian head similar to a design on their summer camp patch. It was first issued on a gray neckerchief. When lodges sent delegations to National OA Conferences they were requested to wear a lodge neckerchief. Plans to attend the 1952 NOAC at Miami University in Ohio may have been part of the motivation to issue this patch. (http://lodge70.org/lodgehx/Uwharrie/Uwharrie%20History%2020150622.pdf)
