Traveling Gauge Program


The Grand Master will have a Statewide Traveling Gauge Program. The Traveling Gauge, location can be tracked using the locator found on the Grand Lodge of Kentucky website and/or the Grand Lodge of Kentucky Statewide Traveling Gauge, Location Facebook Page (see Appendix D). It is important that you follow the directions contained in the Traveling Gauge case to ensure that its location is kept updat- ed, so all lodges have an opportunity to claim it. One or more Masons may claim the Traveling Gauge at any Masonic meeting. It must be claimed and presented in a tiled or open meeting to count. Make sure to follow the directions and sign the registry contained in the Traveling Gauge case. The Traveling Gauge will begin at Salem Lodge No. 81, District 3, on October 19, 2023. Rules for claiming the Gauge will be posted on the Location Facebook page and a copy will be included in the Gauge Case.

As Masons, we are taught that the Gauge is an instrument used to divide our time equaly into three parts, eight hours for the service of God and the relief of a poor and distressed worthy brother; eight hours for our usual vocations, and eight for refreshment and sleep.

Elected or Appointed Grand Lodge Officers and District Deputy Grand Masters are not eligable to retrieve the Grand Master’s 24 Inch Gauge.
