In January of 1968, Chester Chapter was named the DeMolay International Chapter of the Year for 1967. One would wonder what was involved in order to earn Chapter of the Year. The judging was done on a 5 category base: administration, membership, ritual work, special activities or awards, and chapter activities. Although several PA DeMolay Chapters have placed in the top for consideration, the first, and only, to achieve this accomplishment was Chester Chapter. For a full review of what earned them the Chapter of the Year, below you will find pages explaining their accomplishment of each phase of the judging, found in the January issue of the DeMolay International Cordon Magazine. It is important to note that Chester Chapter would go on to win the title again the next year as well.
