What is it?

Liberty Pickering Lodge #219 and Odenton Lodge #209 (re)introduced The Maryland Traveling Gavel in 2013. The Traveling Gavel is a 24″ hardwood gavel with a commemorative band. It is designed to promote fraternal visitations to other lodges. Specific rules guide how to obtain the gavel. The lodge who holds it the longest each year wins special recognition and possibly a prize from the Grand Master!

A lodge visitation can be one of the most educational and rewarding experiences within our fraternity. Let’s share our fraternal friendship and fellowship with our brothers by visiting lodges throughout our great jurisdiction. May the most traveled lodge win!
