On this significant occasion, I am humbled to receive the honor which the International Order of DeMolay has decided to bestow upon this supportive and grateful Senior DeMolay. I still reflect upon the ethics and personality development which I received in my days as an Indiana DeMolay. What I learned at chapter meetings and in the company of other DeMolays blended in so smoothly with church teachings and, later on, into the tenets of Freemasonry. The rough ashlar was little by little smoothed by what I learned from such organizations. It is my fervent hope that future generations of young men may be helped to enjoy better and fuller lives as good husbands, loyal friends, tolerant men of faith and patriotic citizens of our great country. DeMolay has served me well and I hope that I have served in some small way this noble order.
