“Firm Bound In Brotherhood” – Lowanne Nimat Lodge History Released
The Lowanne Nimat Lodge History has been completed and filed with the National Order of the Arrow in Irving, Texas. It contains some interesting facts that you may not have known, for instance:
• 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.”
