Visiting Maul Idea

Postby W.Bro.Barrie » Tue Dec 23, 2014 7:19 pm

In October I was fortunate enough to be accompanying our Provincial Grand Master as an active Steward to a meeting in Godalming. It was their 125th Anniversary Meeting and an Installation. The Brother being installed was also receiving his 50 year certificate. An enjoyable evening was had by all.
As we went in to the Festive Board I was very surprised to see that all the place names were in fact miniature mauls all personalised, I was very impressed to find that they had all been made personally by the new Master.
Whilt thanking him at the end of the evening I found out that he was a retired cabinet maker and had made lots of things for many Lodges.
An idea was formed and I called Jack a couple of days later to put it to him. Could he make a really large maul, hollow like a money box which my Lodge would sponsor ? Certainly was the reply , what for ?
I explained that I intended it to tour the province being passed from Lodge to Lodge raising funds for the 2019 RMBI Festival.
In that case Jack replied just cover the cost of the materials and I am not accepting anything for the labour let's just hope it raises a good sum. A true gentleman he duly kept his word and it was completed on November 29th.
If you would like to follow it's progress . http://mordenparklodge8038.org/2019-festival-maul-diary
