Chapter Spotlight: Ridge Council Chapter
In the years that Ridge Council Chapter, of the Lakes Region of New York DeMolay, has been around it has cultivated relationships with the surrounding Masonic organizations and the community, no matter where they relocated. Because of their ability to adapt and forge new friendships wherever they go, they continue to grow and stand as one of the stronger Chapters in NY DeMolay.
DeMolay is a youth driven nonprofit organization for young men ages 12-21. Founded in 1919, New York DeMolay works to bring together young men in helping the community, fostering connections and building leadership skills. Upon membership, DeMolays learn the importance of cleanliness, comradeship, courtesty, fidelity, filial love, patriotism and reverence for sacred things. Through enduring committment, members of DeMolay have the opportunity to move up through the ranks, gain recognition and develop lifelong friendships.
The DeMolay Varsity Club Initiative
Create enthusiasm and fellowship for the organization as well as provide opportunity for all members to become active, engaged, and ultimately an “owner” of their chapter experience. As an acknowledgment of their efforts they will be deemed to have “lettered” in DeMolay.
