Welcome to our web site.

Our web site is a great way to gather all the brethren from different chapters, keep members informed, and attract a broader audience by introducing ourselves to the community. We'll use this site to inform people about our organization, share ideas, and organize events and activities.

OUR TASK

About a hundred miles from Tucson, Arizona, a lonely prospector has lighted each night a lantern atop a long pole to guide those who might go astray upon the desert waste. No one has asked him to this service these many years, but undoubtedly a sense of duty for his fellows, has made him do his bit in this wasteland.

If your DeMolay chapter lights its beacon upon a hilltop to aid those who might come within the beneficence of its rays, for the purpose only of pleasure or personal gain, then you and your chapter have failed to catch the vision of real service. If your group is not adding intellectual force to the individual as well as to the community, then your structure is builded on sand and the foundation will surely crumble.

If DeMolay is merely a lodge in your community, a miniature dancing academy or a place where only fun abounds, then you and your colleagues have failed to catch the vision. The beacon lights of DeMolay upon a thousand hilltops throughout this nation must lead young men to higher ideals and greater service to their fellows that they may be worthy of a priceless heritage.

I hope that you have that vision. The Order of DeMolay is not a lodge nor is it a fraternity, except by way of a confederated youth. It is not an asylum for the mental defective, a reformatory, or the drawing room of a nation. It is a semi-educational and benevolent society striving to arouse into action the future leaders of the world.

This Movement has enjoyed the blessings of Divine Providence: it has developed in a period of a few years from a few boys into the third largest youth movement in the world. I am not fanatically religious but i can say that Divine Power has manifested itself so often in the molding of this Movement, that I come to the realization that God is performing His miracles today among men and institutions as He did centuries ago.

We who are entrusted with this duty, and he who wears the emblem of this society, must become profoundly aware of the nearness of Him who brings to successful conclusion, our duties, our tasks, and our happiness. God is the keystone of our structure and in Him is all power to aid us as an institution or as an individual.

DeMolay now is in the laboratory; it is being tried by test tube and standard, to discover its weaknesses and to fortify its strength, Every DeMolay, every chapter, and every man, who has the interest of this organization at heart, must show by his actions and by his leadership of others, that the Order of DeMolay is truly a brotherhood of exceptional service. Are you doing your part in the crusade?

These are the words of Frank S. Land spoken over 60 years ago. They are as appropriate now as they were then.
