Broadneck Captures the Traveling Gavel

February 17, 2018

 

Exalted Ruler(ER) Ken Chapman, supported by Past ERs Don Smith, Vince Sitoski, and Bill Robinson, led fourteen members of Broadneck Elks Lodge to storm the regular meeting of the Glen Burnie Elks lodge on  February 22nd to retrieve the sought after BPOE North Central District Traveling Gavel. The Gavel, carved by a local area Elk to promote fellowship and camaraderie amongst the 9 lodges in the district remained in the Annapolis Elks Lodge for nearly a decade until liberated by Broadneck last year. Since then the Gavel has traveled to Bowie Lodge, Essex Lodge and most recently to Glen Burnie Lodge. The North Central District Traveling Gavel will be on display at the Broadneck Elks Lodge #2608 now and through the upcoming visit of the Grand Exalted Ruler, Malcolm J. McPherson Jr. on March 22nd. Be sure and stop by and take a gander at the Gavel.
