The Ride of a Lifetime

Pennsylvania DeMolay is proud to support the Children's Dyslexia Centers of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite of the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction. Through advanced teaching methods, children attending the Centers are able to overcome the challenge of Dyslexia, free of cost, thanks to the generosity of Scottish Rite Masons. PA DeMolay adopted this cause as our State Charity because of the impact it has on children and teens just like our members.

Many of Chapters go out and raise funds to donate back to the Learning Centers or perform community service in an effort to raise awareness of the cause. However, one member of the PA Masonic Youth Foundation family is going above and beyond the call of duty to help this worthwhile cause.

"Dad" Larry R. Emigh, a member of the Board of Directors of the PA Masonic Youth Foundation, a retired DeMolay Advisor, and Scottish Rite Mason is riding his bicycle from California to Massachusetts in an effort to tell the story of the Children's Dyslexia Centers. Beginning in May of 2012, "Dad" Emigh will ride 3,415 miles from coast to coast, ending his journey in Lexington, MA, just south of the headquarters of the Scottish Rite in the Northern Jurisdiction. Oh, did we mention "Dad" Emigh is 70 years old?

His ride was recently profiled in the Northern Light, the publication of the AASR, NMJ. We've posted it here for you to read. Just click the image to make it bigger!

You can also view a video of "Dad" Emigh's "training" over on YouTube, follow his journey through his website at, and track his daily progress on Facebook and Twitter.

"Dad" Emigh is putting his sweat and tears into making the Learning Centers better - what can you do to support him and this worthwhile cause?

Frat! ~ "Dad" Seth Anthony
