Lowanne Nimat Brothers Complete Annual Service at the Great New York State Fair
Lowanne Nimat Lodge once again gathered at the State's smallest park for a very large service project - painting the surface and walls of the reflecting pool in front of the Horticulture Building at the NYS Fairgrounds. Just weeks before the start of the Great NYS Fair, nearly 1 million people will have the opportunity to see the work of our Brothers. In addition the Arrowmen present mulched all of the landscaping, trees and signage in the park that is a favorite spot of Fairgoers.
Lowanne Nimat welcomes 70 new Arrowmen and 17 new Brotherhood members
The Amangi Mawinsin (Spring Ordeal) was a big success despite some very challenging weather. We welcomed 70 new Arrowmen and 17 members walked the Brotherhood Trail. In addition our Extended Elangomat program was introduced including the new patch for those who serve in this high honor.

- We are a product of seven other legacy Lodges;
- OA Co-Founder Carroll Edson retired in Syracuse, became a member of Onondaga Lodge and even volunteered his time with local Scouts, some of whom are members of the Lodge today. He is just the second recipient of the Distinguished Service Award and is listed as from “Syracuse, NY” in the National OA History;
- We once had a Lodge Flap so scandalous it was rejected by the Supreme Chief of the Fire but went into production anyways! Find out why in “Firm Bound In Brotherhood: The History of Lowanne Nimat Lodge.”
