‘The City that Never Sleeps’, ‘The Greatest City on Earth’ or ‘The City So Nice, They Named it Twice’ are just a few of the many nicknames we’ve come to know and love for our hometown of New York City. Arguably, the most popular of its many nicknames is “The Big Apple” and the Greater New York Councils is excited to announce a new series of CSPs to be released under that same banner.
Annually, the “Big Apple Series” will celebrate a famous NYC landmark, icon or
anniversary in a limited edition Council Shoulder Patch. Wherever our Scouts may travel, they will always have a picture of the Big Apple to wear proudly on their sleeves.
There is no more fitting a tribute for the inaugural patch in this series than The Tribute in Light, commemorating the 10th anniversary of the attacks of September 11th, 2001. This world-renowned icon of remembrance, honoring those who were lost and paying tribute to those who worked so hard to get our city through that terrible time in its history has become a hallmark of our City skyline at night.
Whether you are an avid collector of Scouting memorabilia or brand new to Scouting, this series will surely make a great addition to any collection for years to come.
