Peninsula Council 595 Emblems
Peninsula Council 595 was founded originally as Newport News Council in 1918, headquartered in Newport News, Virginia. In 1929 the name was changed to Peninsula Council, and in 1968 the Council celebrated their 50th Anniversary with commemorative emblems (see below) and this booklet.

The council merged in 1992 with adjacent Old Dominion Council 601 of Suffolk, Virginia to form Colonial Virginia Council 595, with the new council headquartered in Newport News. The Order of the Arrow Lodges of the respective councils would not complete their merger to form Wahunsenakah Lodge 333 until January of 1996.

You can find more information about the Order of the Arrow Lodge for Peninsula Council on the Kecoughtan Lodge 463 Emblems and History page, and more information about Peninsula Council Camps on the Council Camps web page on this site.
Before council shoulder patches were authorized by the National Office in the mid-70's Scouts wore community and state strips on the left shoulder of the uniform shirt. Check out the patches that represented communities served by Peninsula Council on the Peninsula Council RWS Page.
