Traveling Gavels - June 1, 2010

Photo Courtesy of Right Worshipful Emmett "Buddy" Pate

Kempsville Lodge took 21 Brethren to Willis V. Fentress' June Stated Communication and retrieved both the District and State Traveling Gavels. The State Gavel (shown on the right) has been moving throughout Virginia for over 30 years. In 2008 it briefly crossed the border and spent some time at Hall Lodge in Shawboro, NC.

It was last housed at Kempsville back in 1976 when the Brethren retrieved it from Great Bridge Lodge. It's first visit to our Lodge occurred in 1974 when Kempsville took 14 Brethren and retrieved it from Willis V. Fentress. Its stay, however, was short-lived as four days later, Corinthian Lodge brought 39 Brethren to Kempsville and took the gavel back to Norfolk.

The State Gavel's most recent stay at Kempsville Lodge was just as brief. Twenty Brethren from Owens Lodge attended our June Stated Communication and took the gavel back to Norfolk.
