DeMolays celebrate 90th anniversary

DeMolay Chapters around the world celebrate the month of March as International DeMolay Month to mark the March 18th anniversary of the founding of the Order in 1919.

Locally, Peachtree City Chapter will be holding several events to celebrate the seven main virtues of DeMolay: Love of Parents, Reverence for Sacred Things, Courtesy, Comradeship, Fidelity, Cleanness and Patriotism. They will culminate their activities with a public installation of officers on Saturday, Mar. 28 at 7:30 p.m. at the Peachtree City Masonic Center, 201 Whitlock Place, Peachtree City.

DeMolay, an international organization for young men age 12 (and completed the 7th grade) to 21, utilizes local chapters as a “laboratory” setting for members to learn leadership skills, public speaking, time management and financial management. In addition to these skills DeMolay offers an expansive social and athletic program.
DeMolay chapters also work to become community assets through programs of community service. Each year, thousands of community service projects are undertaken by DeMolay chapters throughout the world.

Over 30,000 young men in the United States actively participate in DeMolay chapters today and well over one million men have benefited from the DeMolay experience since it was founded in 1919. Young men and their parents who are interested in or curious about DeMolay are encouraged to attend this public ceremony.
