Modesto DeMolay

The Modesto chapter of the Order of DeMolay will now be holding their meetings on the first and third Mondays at 7 PM at the lodge. The first meeting will be on September 15th at 7 PM. We will have pizza, soda, etc., so come out and support our youth!

We are looking for advisory council members. We also need young men between the ages of 12 and 20 for the chapter. Do you know any such young men: sons, grandsons, neighbors? Let’s invite them to come out and meet the members of the Modesto chapter of the Order of DeMolay.

Call the lodge secretary, Mike Arnerich, at (209) 918-2297 or e-mail him at lodge206.secretary@att.net to RSVP or for any questions.

“Welcome, Hiram”

One of the extraordinary pleasures I’ve had during my tenure as Master was to regularly travel to nearby (and sometimes, not so nearby) lodges to share the Brotherly Love that we as Masons enjoy.

In almost every locale, one can find a Masonic Lodge. Even without knowing any of the gentlemen present, it is with open arms that a brother is Welcomed.

If you know of a Mason, past or present, please encourage him to look for an opportunity to seek out and attend a local Lodge event.

We look forward to seeing you!
