Forty and Eight National -- The Grand Gavel
This Gavel Started out in Forest Lake, MN at Voiture 44.  It was unfortunately stolen during a Mid-Winter banquet and has been all over the United States and is still traveling.  This poor Voyageur from Ohio has been hauling it around for two years due to the Covid-19.  He is waiting to see who is the Lucky one to get it next.  He had to carry it to every 40/8 function he visited!  Voyageur Jerry Block  of McLeod County Voiture 414 in Hutchinson and the State Correspondant for the 40/8 of Minnesota usually does the unlucky presentation at the Promenade National or National Conventions.  This year held in Springfield, MO.  The Gavel weighs upwards of 50 Lbs.  Poor Fella, he just wants to get rid of it!
