“I have been blessed by my faith, my family and my fraternity. My DeMolay experience of just two years as a Chapter Scribe taught me all I needed to know about brotherhood and service. Although I have presided over many wonderful Masonic organizations in Pennsylvania, I always returned to DeMolay to repay the Dads who mentored me, and to preserve and grow the Order for the young men who are the future of our nation.”
