Dan and Sharmon Walters were touched by the donation of 200 stuffed bears to Denton Regional Medical Center recently in memory of their daughter, Ashley, who died at 21 from injuries suffered in an accidental shooting in 2013. Legacy DeMolay, a character and leadership development organization for young men 12 and up, donated more than 1,200 bears throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area on Ashley Walters’ behalf.
March 18th is a day that every DeMolay should know. On this day back in 1314, Jacques DeMolay was burned at the stake. Jacques DeMolay was the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar. The Knights Templar was a wealthy organization during the reign of King Philip the Fair of France. He ordered the destruction of this order by seizing all of the known Templers in the Land. False confessions were created, and DeMolay and his principle officers were tried and imprisoned for years. After DeMolay stood up for what he believed for and stayed true to his brethren and not disclose any of the secrets or where they were. King Philip order the trials stopped immediately and DeMolay burned at the stake on March 18, 1314. It is really special that today marks the 700th anniversary of this faithful day. Due to his character and loyalty we honor this man, whose name we have taken for our order. The virtues that he had 700 years ago we still try to live by today. When Dad Land founded this order in 1919 he suggested the name DeMolay to the young men who didn’t know what to call their new organization. March 24, 1919 was the day in history that launched the Order of DeMolay. During the next few years, however, the date of March 18, the date in the past that had witnessed the death of Jacques DeMolay, came to be more frequently used. That is why today we celebrate the 95th anniversary of DeMolay.
I hope everyone has a great day today! Remember to wear a DeMolay shirt to work or school and show everyone you know that you support DeMolay, I know I will!
This is also DeMolay week so get out there and do something in your community and let people know who we are! Also just a reminder my competition is still going on, every chapter still has time to do it!
After the Mayor of Alvin proclaimed March 2014 as DeMolay Month in Alvin, Texas at the last stated City Council Meeting of February, and the story was carried on the front and 2nd page of the Alvin Sun, John Wayne Chapter members ramped up their efforts for a successful month with several activities.
