Middle Georgia Demolay selects new officers | Community Spirit
The Middle Georgia chapter of DeMolay recently held their officer installation service at the Tyrian Lodge 111 in Warner Robins.
DeMolay, which derives its name from Jacques DeMolay, the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar, is a Masonic-sponsored youth organization for boys ages 12-21. Started over 80 years ago, it is the largest youth fraternity in the world.
The newly installed officers for the Middle Georgia chapter are Master Councilor - Scotty Kent; Senior Councilor - Austin Roberts; Junior Councilor - Alex Burgos; Senior Deacon - Matt Whittington; Junior Deacon - Gabe Burgos; Senior Steward - Kalen Thomas; Junior Steward – Chris Ellixson; Chaplain - Hiroki Harris; Marshal - Tristan Bryan; and Standard Bearer -Aaron Podskoc.
One of the goal’s of DeMolay is to mentor young men about civic responsibility, leadership and life skills. DeMolay chapters observe seven Obligatory Days; days where focus is given to someone or something. These days include Patriots, Parents, Education, Comfort, Devotion, Government, and Frank S. Land, in honor of the founder of DeMolay.
Observances for Obligatory Days include service to others, presenting flags and books to schools or libraries, raising funds for a particular charity, have a special speaker at a meeting or attending a function together as a chapter.
For example on Education Day, members will hear a guest speaker talk about the value of an education and the DeMolay members will be recognizing educators whose dedication has made a difference in their own lives.
