On Feb. 14, at its stated meeting, the Hazen Lodge #361 was presented by Brother Bill Pascha of Carlisle Lodge #587 with the traveling gravel know as “The Selkirk Gavel”.
The Gavel is from Selkirk Lodge # 55 AF&AM, GRBC Kimberley, British Columbia, Canada. The traveling gave began its journey from Selkirk Lodge in 1994 in hopes that it would travel to all the lodges in Canada, continuing the journey across the United States before being returned to its home in Kimberley, British Columbia, Canada. There is a book in the gavel case to sign and fill out when the gavel is returned, they will have record of its journey. Also there are cards in the case to fill out with the presenting and receiving lodge names each time it changes hands that is to be mailed in so that can keep a current location of its journey.
The Hazen Lodge planed to present the gavel to White River Lodge #37 om Des Arc at its Master Degree on Feb. 23.
The Hazen Lodge #361 would like to extend gratitude to Carlisle Lodge #587 for bestowing the lodge with the honor of bringing them gavel.
The gavel was used in opening and closing of the lodge and conducting its works.
Brethren Hazen Lodge held a Fellowcraft Degree on March 2 to bestow the Second Degree of Masonry on Johnathan Lewellyn.
