King Hiram 566 in Toronto, King Hiram 78 in Tillsonburg and King Hiram 37 in Ingersoll have a travelling gavel with a large pedestal that travels between the three lodges during installations. It started around 30 years ago I believe. Initially all three lodges were involved but Tillsonburg dropped off after a spell. W. Bro. Mitchell and W. Bro John Kaiser were instrumental in bringing Tillsonburg back into the fold and the three lodges look forward to many more years of fellowship to come.
