Kommanding History

Welcome back everyone! With the holidays now behind us, the PA DeMolay blog will resume it's normal posting schedule (Mondays and Thursdays.)

Today's post comes to us from "Dad" Eric Ullom, PSMC and Deputy Executive Officer. "Dad" Ullom recently came across a copy of "The Kommander," which was the newsletter of Auvergne Priory. Priory is a little known program within the Commonwealth. It was originally designed to provide another avenue for leadership for older DeMolays. The program was tried in the 1980's, but fell dark in less than 10 years. "Dad" Labagh has talked about trying the program again, but no final decisions have been made.

However, as a piece of PA DeMolay history, this document is pretty interesting. Published in March of 1984, it covers some of the activities of the organization right from the very beginning. You'll notice three names on the list officers that are pretty familiar - "Dad" Lee Cram, "Dad" Jess Leidig, and "Dad" Eric Ullom - all of whom serve on our EO's staff to this day. It also shows how the Priory met, in Convocations, twice a year.

Thanks go out to "Dad" Ullom for sending this our way. We're depositing it in the electronic archive for future use.

Frat! ~ "Dad" Seth Anthony
