We've had a busy week here at the PA DeMolay office. With Superhero School fast approaching, and Convention and Key Man on the horizon, the staff are starting to kick into high gear for summer planning. However, this doesn't mean we take any time away from doing all we can to make the DeMolay program better.
With that in mind, we have had some heated discussions on ways to improve the Order in Pennsylvania. Lots of ideas were tossed around, but the one that seemed to consistently show the most prospect is very simple, and easily implemented. Below you'll find a preview of the statement, soon to be issued by the EO, and created a policy within PA.
"Pennsyvlania DeMolay takes its Masonic Heritage very seriously. In recent years PA DeMolay has gotten away from some significant traditions that relate back to the fraternity. Therefore, as of April 1st, 2010, all DeMolay Chapters are now required to adopt some form of hat or headgear, to be worn at all official meetings, and when in public. Examples from the past include pill box style hats, fezzes, peaked caps, and others. This policy will be enforced by the Deputy Executive Officers."
All DeMolay Chapters operating within PA will be required to send a sample version of their hat to the PA DeMolay Office for approval and recordkeeping purposes.
So, what kind of hat do you like to wear?
