DeMolay International celebrates its centennial this year, marking a century since Mason Frank S. Land had the idea for a boy’s club based on fraternal values. The female orders of Job’s Daughters and Rainbow for Girls followed, and today, the three organizations provide friendship, values, and life skills to young men and women ages 10 to 21.
In the Southern California city of Thousand Oaks, Conejo Valley Lodge No. 807 makes it possible.
Like all youth orders, this community’s DeMolay chapter and Job’s Daughters bethel rely on local Masons for support. Conejo Valley Lodge proudly steps up in a number of important ways. Master and DeMolay advisor Brandon Lippincott; secretary and Senior DeMolay Stephen Wurtzel; and past master and Grand Master’s Youth Service Award recipient Steven Cooley explain.
A century since its founding, DeMolay has shaped the lives of more than 1 million young men around the world and established itself as one of the fraternity’s most powerful legacies. Attend the Symposium this June to explore the youth order’s inspiring history and join its centennial celebration.
