Building Tomorrow’s Leaders Today
Round Hill Lodge is especially proud to have some of their own Master Masons on the cutting edge of the resurgence of DeMolay in the Southern Tier District of Free & Accepted Masons.
During the Spring of 2015, five young men from Binghamton and Endicott came together to form the Phoenix Chapter of DeMolay International. This group of future leaders meets at the Johnson City Unity Masonic Lodge on the 1st & 3rd Wednesdays of each month.
What is DeMolay?
Something better: Faith. Values. Respect. Reverence. Courtesy. Fidelity. Cleanliness. Patriotism. Personal Development and Community Service.
DeMolay is the premier youth leadership organization building young men of character and dedicated to making young men better people and effective leaders. Providing a program based on timeless principles and practical experience, DeMolay strives to not only create an extraordinary leader, but a leader of true character. DeMolays hold themselves to a higher moral standard, striving to constantly improve and be better each and every day.
DeMolay’s believe in:
Core Values: A DeMolay is honest and accepting of others from all backgrounds. He maintains health in his spirit, mind, and body by striving to improve and represent the seven core values of DeMolay.
Love of Parents: To understand, appreciate, and reciprocate the love our parents give to us.
Reverence: To respect the religious beliefs of everyone, and to believe in a cause higher than ourselves.
Courtesy: To value every person through acceptance, empathy, respect, and tolerance.
Comradeship: To form true and long lasting friendships far and wide.
Fidelity: To be true, trustworthy, and honest to yourself and your values.
Cleanness: To be clean in thought, word, and deed.
Patriotism: To honor your country and be a contributing citizen. To respect those who have and continue to serve our Country in every field of sacrifice and service.
Personal Development: Through the practice of our core values, skills, and personal relationships we encourage positive behavior, good health, and achievement.
Community Service: DeMolay encourages our members to identify and understand the needs of their communities. The young men will learn to develop and participate in youth-led responses to those needs such as hunger, homelessness, illness, veterans’ causes to name a few. Service partner foundations include Relay for Life, the Shriners Hospitals for Children, VA Hospitals, and many more worthwhile causes worldwide.
These values challenge each and every member to better themselves as individuals and as a group.
