New Virginia lodges circa 1952

While researching dates of the early Area 3-C Pow Wows I came across this item in the Order of the Arrow National Bulletin Winter 1952 edition:

Other documents state that Kecoughtan Lodge was originally granted its charter on July 5, 1951, and Powhatan Lodge was first chartered on June 18,1951, so it took the National Office more than a year to report the new Lodges from Virginia. At least they included their names, which is more than can be said for Lodges 458, 464, 465, and 467! Of course, information traveled much slower in those days.
