Centennial Memory #92: Tri-State Convention in 1999

To celebrate the DeMolay Centennial, PA DeMolay will be counting down 100 memories worth celebrating that took place within the DeMolay Chapters and Jurisdiction of Pennsylvania.

In 1999, Pennsylvania DeMolay teamed up with New Jersey and Delaware DeMolay for a Tri-State Convention. The Convention was held at the Beach Terrace Hotel in Wildwood, New Jersey.

Here are some of the biggest takeaways from the 1999 Convention

  • Brother Rakesh Kumar of Allentown Chapter presided for Pennsylvania as the current State Master Councilor.
  • The newly elected State Master Councilor at Convention was Brother, and "Dad", Louis E. GrowMiller of Somerton Chapter. The rest of his officers were Deputy State Master Councilor, Walt Pietrowski; State Senior Councilor, Greg Deal; State Junior Councilor, William Wichterman; State Scribe, Ravi Shah; and State Treasurer, Brett Fisher. The State Sweetheart was Miss Meg Perla, representing Friendship-Bray Chapter.
  • "Dad" Dave Glattly, who is currently the Sovereign Grand Commander for the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction of the Scottish Rite, was appointed as the Executive Officer of New Jersey DeMolay.
  • The 1999 Convention Yearbook was divided into 3 sections to accommodate all three Jurisdictions represented at Convention.
