Order of DeMolay

What is the Order of DeMolay?

It is a fraternity for young men ages 12 to 21. It is based around 7 cardinal virtues: filial love, reverence for sacred things, courtesy, comradeship, fidelity, cleanness and patriotism.

Okay, if you're still awake, here's the real description.

It's a group of guys who get together for meetings and activities.  They do lots of things: bowling, camping, laser tag, movies, sports. Basically anything you can think of can be done. The members themselves decide what they're going to do or not do. I apologize to any of you who are Boy Scouts, it's a great organization, but seriously, who wants adults to tell them what fun stuff they're going to be doing when that's all they hear at home? Not too many. There are Obligations that every member must memorize. Another difference from the Boy Scouts (again, I apologize for using that as an example, but I had to think of something). Each chapter is run by a boy who is called the Master Councilor, which is basically the president of the Order. He runs the meetings and tries to keep the chapter running smoothly. There is adult supervision (for you worried parents out there) but they mostly make sure the chapter follows the by-laws and their lodge's rules. If you are interested in learning more, you can contact me or Tom Sellers, who is the member in charge of the whole state as State Master Councilor.
