DeMolay - 23 April 2008

Members of the Rutland Lodge #79 who are Senior DeMolays and former members of the Lincoln Chapter wanted to give the regalia from their old chapter to the current active members of DeMolay. Rather than just give it away, they wanted it to be special occassion. Along with a few current and Past Advisors, we performed the Ceremony of Light and the 9 O’Clock Interpolation for the Lodge.

There were members of all the currently active DeMolay chapters from around the state present, as well as a large number of Masons for this event.  For more information about DeMolay in Vermont, visit their website.
