Our major goal this year in this Pillar Program is to restart the DeMolay chapter. Brother Don Barnett has agreed to work with me in this important undertaking. I also hope to be joined in the effort by Brother Michael Tindall, now an Entered Apprentice and a former Master Councilor of the George Guker Chapter of DeMolay at our lodge hall, when he completes his degrees. With the Masonic minimum age 18, the restarting of our DeMolay chapter offers a way to have the lodge hall used more, gain new members, and to positively impact our local youth at a critical time in their lives.
We also plan to work with our Membership Retention committee to contact each of our nearly 400 members at least once this year to ask their comments on what their Lodge can do to generate their interest.
Br. Michael Flatt, Sr. Steward
