I would like to take time right now to congratulate and recognize my fellow DeMolay members. May the world around us be taken in with the utmost perception of respect. God is proud and God loves the cause we’ve entered. Happiness is within reach as long as love is one in the same

State Master Councilor
A good leader should be forceful, but patient
should be demanding, but negotiable.
He should have the courage to fight anything,
but the knowledge to not fight at all.
He should make his followers get to work when it is needed,
but be relax when the work is done.
A good leader should find a way to make everyone happy,
but make decisions for the majority.
He should have the heart of a mother bear,
but discipline to say no.
A good leader should lead not to satisfy himself, but others.
He should clean up the mess of the past, and not make a mess of his own.
A good leader is one who can look at every option in the eye,
but still have room for new ideas.
A good leader must have a plan from start to finish,
but is prepared for what may happen during the journey.
A good leader is a person who doesn’t care what others think,
as long as he knows it’s for the greater good, and that it is fair, and unswerving.
A good leader, is one who will take charge, and becomes a better leader.

I hope you’re holidays were fantastic and that you gorged yourselves to being enrolled in “WeightWatchers.” Now on to actual business. The Alliance Chapter Order of DeMolay will be installing Brother Chris Goodell as Master Councilor of the Spring 2012 term on January 15th. This Spring is a special one because there will be three family members on the head line of each organization. Betsy Goodell, Honored Queen of Bethel #3, Chris Goodell, Master Councilor of Alliance Chapter, and Gary Goodell, Grand Master. In this DeMolay term there will be plans for a ski trip, bowling, a lock in, and attendance to Round Up and Conclave by more than just me! (YAY!) We are also planning on getting in contact more with other chapters and finding ways that we all can work together. Happy New Years, see you at Round Up!

Greetings from the west side of the state. Tonight, the Alliance Chapter, Order of DeMolay underwent the Initiatory Degree. We initiated 5 members: Walker, Cole, Ezra, Anthony, and Lane. Now this Friday at 8:00 we will be having a lock-in at our Masonic Temple. At the lock-in there will be a few movies, games, and more planned activities. Currently, our chapter is booming and everyone should be expecting to see more than one of us at Round Up/Conclave this year.
