DeMolay News and Events
Spring is…DeMolay Installation Season Spring means many things to many people. For NORCAL DeMolay, it is installation season. A DeMolay Chapter’s term lasts six months. Installations start in late April and continue through early June. Our members attend many installations and also serve on Installation Teams for other Chapters in the Bay Area Division. Installations are fun and formal; they provide comradeship and a chance to show off a Chapter’s ritual, all ending with a party and a dance. One of the most satisfying experiences for our DeMolay is the strength of the friendships that form with members of other Chapters. They can travel all over Northern California, find a brother and a friend.
In May, we celebrate Parent’s Day on May 9th with a meeting focusing on showing our Chapter’s ritual to our members’ parents, including a Flower Talk presentation by Senior Councilor, Travis Magro. All new officers will be getting acquainted with their new stations, sponsoring prospect parties, serving at Masonic events and providing a special ritual presentation for San Francisco’s Mission Lodge.
June is typically a pretty quiet month for DeMolay as the young men are going through finals at school and preparing for summer activities. Sadly we will be saying goodbye to Caulin Shannon, PMC-MSA, NORCAL Sr. Councilor, as he leaves us on June 18th to join the U.S. Military Academy at West Point as a Cadet. We wish Caulin the best of luck and are thankful for the inspiration and great example he has provided us.
