Sir Knight Paul M. Leary, REGC
Grand Commandary of NH
Dear Brother and Dad Leary,
On behalf of the young men of New Hampshire DeMolay we want to thank you and your Sir Knights for your generous contribution to our educational programs.
This and other recent donations will allow for our State Junior Councilor Tim Sprague to attend a DeMolay Leadership Conference in Oklahoma. He will be spending a week immersed in a program that will help him improve his skills as a DeMolay State Officer.
We will also be sending four or five DeMolays to Region 1 Leadership Training at Camp Lions Pride, New Durham, NH. They will spend their week gaining knowledge about DeMolay and how they can help lead their local Chapter.
We are very pleased to see the ties between NH Knight Templars and NH DeMolays being re established.
Please feel free to share this with your membership!
Scott F. Jenckes, State Master Councilor
George L. Baldwin, Executive Oficer
New Hampshire DeMolay
