Charity enShrined – A Centennial Courtyard
Kansas City, Mo – DeMolay International is proud to kick-off our largest community campaign ever, Charity enShrined - A Centennial Courtyard to enshrine 100 years of incredible impact to society. This venture celebrates 100 years of DeMolay and is embellished with symbols of DeMolay's commitment to the rich history and tradition of our Order. To typify this proud legacy, the courtyard is exemplified by the Frank S. Land Memorial Fountain, a statue of Dad Land seated in his iconic embrace, a statue of Louis Lower the first DeMolay, the Silent Messenger statue, showing our commitment to care for those in need. As you approach the courtyard, you will see the four historical emblems of DeMolay, brightening the space are seven preceptor lights, and standing tall are two flag poles demonstrating the 7th Cardinal Virtue of our Order.
This courtyard is enriched with red bricks throughout which can be customized in a multitude of ways. As you draw closer to the center of the courtyard, large gray bricks can be customized for a chapter, a jurisdiction, a lodge, a shrine, a temple, and more.
You will find this Charity enShrined Courtyard at the Henry E. Hank Stickney, DeMolay International Service and Leadership Center in Kansas City, Missouri in the Summer of 2019.
Executive Director Michael Russell said, "We launch this community campaign to truly culminate and celebrate the legacy of DeMolay. The impact of this organization has been the foundation of the successes for millions of young men around the world. The unveiling at the Centennial Celebration will showcase a commitment to enshrining 100 years of an organization that has been so impactful to so many. The DeMolay experience does not end at 21, but in fact, begins. The funding from this campaign will aid in future programs for the second century and part of the funding will be presented to the Shriners Hospitals for Children, fitting for everything Dad Land stood for."
