The Traveling Gavel Comes to Mount Hermon

At the Monday, February 20, 2012 Nichols-West Asheville 650 February Stated Communication, John Burchfield reports "Mount Hermon 118 had a strong entourage with a total of twelve members and took possession of the Traveling Gavel. Hominy 491 came in a close second with eleven. Other lodges represented were Black Mountain 663, Swannanoa 561, and French Broad 292. All together there was 14 Past Masters, the District Deputy Grand Master, District Deputy Grand Lecturer, and Past Grand Master N. Hyatt in attendance. It was a delightful evening and eveyone seemed to enjoy the good fellowship and food."

Mount Hermon Lodge #118 was chartered in 1848 by the Grand Lodge of North Carolina. Housed in the Asheville Masonic Temple, our Stated Communication meets on the first Thursday of each month with an open dinner at 6:30pm and the meeting following at 7:30pm.
