“Little did I know that my membership in the Order of DeMolay was the foundation for more than 50 years in public service. The principles it teaches are more important today than ever when young people need opportunity and encouragement to become responsible, contributing members of society. DeMolay provides a great start for a future of helping others and making one’s community a better place.”
