MAHS sophomore honored for work with DeMolay

Posted

Timothy J. Nevil of Middletown, who served as master councilor from June 25, 2016, to Jan. 7, recently was recognized with the prestigious Past Master Councilor’s Meritorious Service Award for his outstanding service to DeMolay at a meeting of the Elizabethtown Chapter, Order of DeMolay.

Nevil is nearing the end of his sophomore year at Middletown Area High School.

To earn this award, a master councilor must preplan his six-month term so that it includes a minimum of one activity in each of these categories: social, civic service, Masonic service, athletic and fundraising.

Additionally, he had to plan for the observance of four obligatory days that the chapter was, by international rules, required to observe: My Government Day, Educational Day, Frank S. Land Day in memory of DeMolay’s founder and Day of Comfort.

There are also public speaking requirements, the recruitment of a minimum number of new members, the filing of all required paperwork, and certain administrative tasks must be completed.

At the close of the six-month term, the master councilor submits a comprehensive letter detailing how the requirements were met.

Mark Brumaghim, Supreme Tall Cedar of the Supreme Forest of the Tall Cedars of Lebanon, of Harrisburg, visited the chapter as a part of its DeMolay Month Celebration to make the formal presentation of the jewel and certificate of achievement.

About 20 percent of the young men who serve as master councilor of Elizabethtown Chapter earn this award.

Elizabethtown Chapter, Order of DeMolay, is a fraternal organization for young men between the ages of 12 and 21 years of age. For more information about Elizabethtown DeMolay, contact chapter adviser Jesse Spence at 717-209-0843 or etowndemolay@gmail.com.
