Quote: Being a member of our Masonic family has been an incredible journey that all started kneeling at the altar of my DeMolay Chapter. I can truly say one of my proudest moments in life was DeMolay giving me the opportunity to continue on my relationship with our Masonic Fraternity. Thank you DeMolay for this life changing experience and being part of shaping my life!
