Centennial Memory #8: Legion of Honor Ceremonies

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.

The Legion of Honor is given by DeMolay International for dedicated service to DeMolay or society in general. The Active Legion of Honor, represented by the red cordon, is given to Senior DeMolays over 25 years of age. The Honorary Legion of Honor, represented by the white cordon, is given to a Master Masons over 30 years of age. Both are distinguished honors that symbolize dedication and service. An annual observance takes place near the date of March 18, remembering our vows and dedication to the organization. 

Conferrals are typically done twice a year, one taking place in the east, the other in the west. Locations have varied over the years, with Elizabethtown, Reading, Greensburg and Pittsburgh being popular locations. Below you will find class photos from several of our ceremonies.     

Until next time - "Dad" Joe Pullin
