The TMR Museum is currently working on a new edition of its TMR Memorabilia Guide last published two decades ago.

We have come across a few images for which we have little or no provenance, but have been anecdotally attributed to TMR. This one was found with several other TMR and GNYC related patches.

Can anyone provide an accurate identification for the felt patch shown below?

I have no reason to believe this is from Ten Mile River Scout Reservation or anyone of its constituent camps, but with 90+ years of memorabilia most of the early issues have not been catalogued before.

Can anyone provide an accurate identification for this patch? It may not even be a scout patch.

Filed under Ten Mile River Scout Musuem

2020 was a year like no other at TMR, the first year since the inception of the camp where there was no campers due to COVID19. Troop Camping was not allowed due to restrictions imposed by NYS Health Department which governs overnight camps. Family Camp was able to open, due to a different license from NYS, but there was no regular troop summer camping at TMR.

The TMR Museum needed to go virtual as well, and its annual TMR Museum Historian Program was moved online as well.

As has it has done for a number of years, the Museum also issued a pocket patch for its Trustees. Using the traditional Indian Cliffs view with the addition of the no COVID design.
