Lodi Chapter, Order of DeMolay, held its 166th installation of officers, on Nov. 9, at the Woodbridge Masonic Lodge. Levi Pivoda, Master Councilor of Valley Division, installed the following officers: Jesse Stratton, senior councilor; Spencer Dayton, junior councilor; Travor Rallens, senior deacon; Cole McLean, senior stewart; Aaron Williams, junior stewart; and Hunter Moon, marshall.

Although Lodi Chapter did not install a Master Councilor, the members are working tirelessly to keep their chapter running. In the Absence of the Master Councilor, Brothers Stratton, and Dayton, will work to fulfill the duties of their office, and of their superior. The position of Master Councilor is the presiding officer and the head of the DeMolay chapter. The title of “Master Councilor” instead of “President” reflects the Masonic/DeMolay tradition of using ceremonies and titles from the stonemasons of the Middle Ages. When the great cathedrals of Europe were being built, the mason in charge of a building site was referred to as the "Master of the work."

The DeMolay fraternity is the premier and most widely prestigious youth organization in the world dedicated to teaching young men between 12 to 21 years of age to be better persons and better leaders. DeMolay members learn leadership skills, public speaking, time management and financial management. In addition to these skills, DeMolay also offers an expansive social and athletic program with the opportunity for civic awareness, responsibility and character development through a variety of self-directed, real-world applications and activities.

Numerous young men in the United States actively participate in DeMolay chapters today, and well over 1 million men have benefited from DeMolay program and experience since it was founded in 1919. Senior DeMolays have achieved greatness and fame as astronauts, presidents, U.S. senators, governors, business leaders and successful, community-minded citizens.

The Lodi community has an active DeMolay chapter that works on behalf/ and with the Masonic Lodge/families and others in Lodi and Woodbridge to build a better and promising future for mankind.
