For us old scouts who are getting back involved I have a question... I earned my Eagle and was in my OA lodge in a different council than I am currently volunteering in.  For a new uniform, what patches are appropriate?  If I wear an OA patch should I get one form my old lodge or am I authorized to wear a different lodge patch for my new council area?

Are you still a due paying member to that OA Lodge?  If not, then remove the patch.

 

 

The Eagle Rank patch would be removed and replaced with the Eagle Knot.

Register with the lodge associated with the council where you are now.  It was the same for me (new lodge as an adult)--I just got my old OA records from my old lodge, gave them to the new one and paid my dues.

Thank you for the replies.  I guess I left out a crucial bit of information.  All of this was 35 years ago and I am lucky enough to be guiding my girlfriend's son into scouting.  I am going to be an active part of his troop.  Honestly I wasn't aware that something I earned could be stripped off due to dues, ha ha.  Not to worry.  I will take Chisos advice and re-register with the new council and pay my dues.  I already knew about the eagle knot.  I think I actually already have one of those somewhere.  Bear with me fellas I'm just getting started and will likely have more questions.

 

Edit to add - On second thought I'm pretty proud of my old lodge and I might just pay my dues there and wear their patch,  just to represent ha ha.
