Comments: The theme was “ONWARD IN BROTHERHOOD”. The fee was $6.50. According to the records I can find, there was a change in how the OA was handled in the region at this time. Each area had a separate region adviser and the overall region had a coordinator. There were two versions of the patch. The one issued at the Conference had a rolled border. It is my understanding that the cut edge version was a prototype and that 24 each were made. The change was made because the officers didn’t like the cut edge.
