On the weekend of December 4th to 6th, Pennsylvania DeMolay held it’s annual December Membership Class. This year, the weekend was held in memory of Thomas Ranken Patton, the same man that the Masonic Conference Center – Patton Campus in Elizabethtown is named after.
The weekend started Friday night with new candidates getting to know the campus that most members have been to several times. While most were getting acquainted with the building, degree cast members spent the night rehearsing their parts to perfect them for Saturday’s festivities.
The degree cast, assembled by State Junior Councilor Jacob Beers, displayed an all star cast of members from chapters all across the state, and even one member from New Jersey, as PSMC Jordan Selby helped with the degrees as well. State Master Councilor Adam Pritchard took charge of the Initiatory Degree, State Scribe Aaron Muldowney and Brother Alex Pittaro led the DeMolay Degree, and Appointed State Officer Andrew Santilli led the 4th Section. A total of 17 members joined at the class, helping increase the membership total for the year. Congratulations to the new and excited members of Pennsylvania DeMolay! Welcome to the Fraternity!
