The District 18 Traveling Gavel didn’t stay long at Gulf Beach Lodge No. 291. It was retrieved on Thursday October 24th during an EA Degree by members of Northside Lodge No. 283. Thirty three Masons enjoyed a wonderful evening.
Gulf Beach Lodge retrieved the Traveling Gavel from Star Lodge last night at the District Deputy Grand Master’s Official Visit. A great time was had by all. The purpose of the Traveling Gavel is to promote visitation between the Lodges of District 18.
