Earn a Lanyard, Belt Buckle or Challenge Coin the Native Sons of the Golden West Passport is now available!
The Passport is designed to give all Native Son Brothers who routinely go above and beyond the call of duty for our order an opportunity to earn a Lanyard, Belt Buckle or Challenge Coin, and to be recognized for their efforts . . . .this means the brothers that;
- Promote events
- Put together new events
- Always seem to be on the work crew and or
- Routinely travel throughout the order
May be eligible to receive an NSGW lanyard, belt buckle or challenge coin.
The belief behind this idea is, that while sponsoring in new members is very important . . . . so are events and activities. Native Son events, activities, and projects are how our name becomes known in the community. It’s how that spark to join gets initiated in a prospective member, and hopefully this spark gains us that new member. The Native Son passport was born from this concept.
The passport is now available on our Native Son’s website (here) and they are being professionally printed. You can download the document and print it yourself, or request them through your parlors’ recording secretary or through the N.S.G.W Grand Parlor Office.
Once you’ve obtained one, take it with you on your travels. While you are at an event or meeting, have it stamped or initialed. Read the guidelines to see what other incentives the Grand President is offering and see what level you can get to by the next Grand Parlor.
It’s a tool that allows you to document your travels, participation and write down your ideas. You can use it as a journal to reminisce upon and recall the brothers from all the corners of California who opened their doors to you in friendship, loyalty and charity. . . . . Have Fun!!!
