Peachtree City DeMolays Celebrate DeMolay Month
PEACHTREE CITY, GA - 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
Friday, March 23 at 8:00 pm 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. Famous Senior DeMolays include:
President Bill Clinton, Walt Disney, Gary Collins, John Wayne, Walter
Cronkite, Fran Tarkenton, Astronauts, U.S. Senators, Governors, business
leaders and successful community minded citizens.
