11/10/13 | 70 New Members - Joplin Chapter
On Sunday, November 10, 2013, Missouri DeMolay welcomed into our fraternity 70 new members to Joplin Chapter in Joplin, Missouri. These young men came recommended from local Blue Lodges, the Scottish Rite Valley of Joplin, and local educators. Click here for more photos from this event.
Under the outstanding leadership of our State Master Councilor, Dustin Sanders, our State Officers greeted these fine young men and their families, and educated and orientated them about the principles of our great Order. Those gathered were so impressed by the display of our fraternity that 70 joined that very same day with their parents watching on.
As you know, family and home play an important role in Missouri DeMolay and yesterday was no exception. We are honored to have been able to welcome into our ranks many of our Masonic Families' sons, grandsons, nephews and friends. Several parents who did not know anything about DeMolay, after witnessing the event and the Ritual, came forward and requested to be D.A.D. trained to become members of the the Joplin Chapter Advisory Council. Also, some of the fathers are now seeking to join Freemasonry.
We are most grateful to the officers and members of Fellowship Lodge #345 and the Scottish Rite Valley of Joplin for their outstanding efforts and unfaltering dedication to these young men of Joplin Chapter, Order of DeMolay. As always, the support of our Missouri Masonic Family is paramount to our success. We sincerely thank each and every member of our Masonic Family who continues their dedicated support of the young men of Missouri DeMolay.
Through the enthusiasm of our DeMolays, the inspiration and true leaders of our Jurisdiction, Missouri DeMolay remains, for the 10th consecutive year, The #1 Jurisdiction in the World.
Thank you one and all for your continued commitment to the principles and ideals of the Order of DeMolay.
Sincerely and fraternally,
11/1/13 | Legion of Honor Investiture
