The statue of the Masonic Worshipful Master was carved in 1996 during Nat Gilchrist P.M. year as Worshipful Master. The intent was to have it passed each year to the incoming Master to enjoy in his home for the his year, then pass it on. Years of travel hasn’t taken its toll on him too badly, although his gavel has since broken off.
