Traveling Gavel from El Paso

Traveling Gavel from El Paso

Our friends from the Tuscola Kiwanis Club state it best:

“Each October, the Illinois-Eastern Iowa District Governor presents each new Division Lt. Governor with a handsome, personalized gavel.  The Lt. Governor sets up a schedule for the clubs in his or her division to pass the gavel from club to club within twelve months.  The purpose is to generate Interclub visits.  The gavel must be delivered in some unique way, and finally returns to the lieutenant governor before the end of his or her term.

Great creativity or culinary expertise is appreciated when presenting the traveling gavel. Clubs have presented the gavel with customized chocolate and caramel gavels, built into a bird house packed with birdseed, frozen in a block of ice, suspended in a pan of lime Jell-O, dropped from an airplane in a bag of flour, and buried in a basket of Easter eggs.   Clubs enjoy this tradition both for the creative ideas and the opportunity to enjoy the delivery!”

Check out the pictures of the bird feeder / traveling gavel we received from our friends at the Kiwanis Club of El Paso and a description:

“Rex from the El Paso club has built the bird feeders for many many years. He cuts out enough parts to make up the number of kindergarden kids in our schools – there were 90+ this year. Rex and and about 7 other club members go to the kindergarden classes and help the kids put their bird house together.”

Thanks so much to our friends from El Paso!
