17-Jan-2010 Presentation of BSA Religious Emblems

1 inch Copyleft Logo

These digital images by Donald R. Wherry are CopyLeft, available for general usage under Free Art License 1.3 (FAL 1.3).

There were a few other cameras at this ceremony.  If anyone who has pictures of it is willing, I would be happy to post them here, properly attributed, under the same Copyleft license as my own.  If you got photos of scenes I missed, had better luck or better equipment than I did, or just plain are a better photographer, e-mail them to me.  I'll cheerfully add your pictures to the display below.

I had to shrink image sizes significantly (approximately 16:1) to get them to display gracefully on a browser.  If you want full-sized files for any of these images, e-mail the filenames (10Jan17??, where ?? is 2 capitol letters) to me at <username @ netins dot net>, where username is the 8 characters following .net/web/ in the URL for this page.  Also, if you want images that would print within a specific form factor (5x7, 4x6, etc.), mention that in your e-mail.

 

You may capture any of these images (as-is) to your local computer.

Foxfire and Internet Explorer users:  Click the right mouse-button anywhere on the desired image.  Left-click on "Save Image As..." on the drop-down menu.  When the "Save Image" panel opens, navigate to the folder of your choice, and enter the "File Name" of your choice.  Click on the "Save" button.

 

Caveat

Some of these images are not of good quality.  I was shooting free-hand, and without flash.  My camera was never top-of-the-line, and no longer approaches cutting edge.  It really didn't like the ambient light in the Cathedral.  Its shutter was open so long that any motion at all caused noticeable blurring.  Its autofocus also had more than ordinary problems.  I returned from the ceremony with more than 100 images.  Over half were so badly blurred or so ill-focused I deleted them.  I'm not real proud of some of the remaining pictures.

 

Acknowledgements

As a parent and a Scouter, I thank Archbishop the Very Reverend Jerome Hanous for his interest in Scouting, and for his comittment in personally celebrating this service and ceremony.  As a photographer, I very gratefully acknowledge his kindness and patience in standing for many post-ceremony posed photos.

Sincere thanks to Scout Chaplain Deacon Mike Klappholz for his huge investments in both the Church and the BSA. Without his effort and counsel, there would have been far fewer Emblem recipients.

Thanks to the Catholic Committee on Scouting of the Archdiocese of Dubuque for organizing and orchestrating the Religious Emblem program and such an impressive award ceremony.

Thanks also to Troop 10 and Troop 91 of the Northeast Iowa Council of the Boy Scouts of America for hosting this ceremony.

 

 

Order Of Service Cover, 300 ppi

Order of Service Pamphlet Cover

I have scanned images of the other 7 pages of the Order of Service pamphlet.  They are not posted because they contain personal information identifying youth and adult award recipients.  Each image is less than 500 kbytes in size.  I will be happy to e-mail copies of them to requestors who identify their Scouting unit affiliation, and state that they will not use them in any manner contrary to the ideals of the Boy Scouts of America.
