2016 Scout Memorabilia Show and Trade-O-Ree New
Join us as Unami Lodge One will host its annual Scout Memorabilia Show on Saturday September 17th at the PA National Guard Armory in Plymouth Meeting at 1046 Belvoir Rd. The memorabilia show has over 60 exhibitors and is the largest memorabilia show in the Philadelphia metro area. You can expect to find all kinds of patches from the Order of the Arrow, summer camps, district and council activities, national and world jamborees, merit badges and ranks along with all types of insignias. In addition to a treasure trove of patches, you will find old uniforms, handbooks, medals, pins, coins and anything and everything else that is scouting related. This is a great opportunity to learn, buy, and sell all types of Scouting Memorabilia. You will have the opportunity to meet with vendors from several parts of the Northeast and other Order of the Arrow Lodges. The Armory has plenty of free parking and great food for all to enjoy. Admission is free to all youth under the age of 18 and $5.00 for admission. If an adult brings 5 or more youths then admission is also free to that adult.
All proceeds directly benefit youth of Unami Lodge and COL Campership Endowment Fund.
