More About DeMolay Oregon
What is DeMolay?
We do almost everything and anything. We have dances, parties, and game nights. We play most sports from basketball to softball to volleyball.
DeMolay was started in 1919, and since that time over four million young men just like us have joined. Today there are about 1,500 chapters, located in the United States, Canada and several other countries.
To join DeMolay, you must be a young man between the ages of 12 and 21; believe in a higher power; and be a person of good character and good reputation.
Most of the chapters meet in Masonic lodge halls twice a month.
A fraternity is an organization whose members have a special bond with one another regardless of age or position. It is a brotherhood built on common interests.
Jacques DeMolay lived around the 14th century in France, during the time of the great Crusades. He was the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar, which was the fraternity of Crusaders in France. He was a Knight and a leader of men who stood up for the less fortunate and was true and faithful to his cause and his friends until death.
