333-20th-anniv-web

Wahunsenakah Lodge 333 of Newport News, VA celebrated their 20th anniversary at the beginning of 2016. In honor of the event the Lodge recently issued a special flap patch with the same design as their first one, commonly referred to as the “Baby Duck.”
 
The Lodge was formed on January 1, 1996 when Kecoughtan Lodge 463 and Chanco Lodge 483 were merged, four years after their parent councils (Peninsula and Old Dominion Area, respectively) had merged to form Colonial Virginia Council. The name comes from the Algonquin name of Chief Powhatan, Father of Pocahontas and leader of the Powhatan Confederacy which dominated southeast Virginia in the early 1800’s.
 
The newly released flap has a blue mylar border and “1996   2016” lettering at the bottom. The Lodge’s 5th anniversary flap and 15th anniversary flaps also used the baby duck design, the former with red mylar and the latter with a dark green mylar border.
