Our Meatball Madness Spaghetti Dinner was a great success! Thank you to everyone who bought a ticket, donated food and supplies, and/or came out and enjoyed a relaxing meal with our DeMolay. Our Advisors cooked dinner from scratch (homemade -meatballs and sauce, even homemade desserts).
We had a lot of fun and made some money.
Our goal with this dinner was to help offset the cost of our Chapter’s attendance at Escape to Florida in January. Our members work hard to raise the money to attend events. We look forward to working with the various lodges in our district to serve dinner at their Installations and participate in other activities with the lodge throughout the coming year.
We are still working on paying our way to Escape in January – Please help us out by donating through Zeffy

Dale Chapman Chapter, DeMolay has been looking for fun ways to interact with our community. We had to put this off due to the quarantine, but we are back and better than ever!

So come one all and join us for a rousing good time playing Bingo.
We will have individual bingo cards that night for $1 each. We would love to presale/ reserve cards so that we have an idea of how many people are coming, but walk-ins are welcome.

During each round of our Bingo Game that night you can play as many game cards as you like.
Prizes will be awarded. (We are currently looking for people and groups to sponsor our prizes – gift cards, and baskets are appreciated.)
There will be snacks and drinks available to purchase that night, and we are also having a pre-order bake sale – Who wants scones? (all other snacks and drinks can be purchased on site…)the pre-order form is on our event page to buy your scones online – we will deliver them on bingo night…
Due to Florida DeMolay’s suspension of in-person events, we will have to postpone the Bingo night and bake sale. We will let you know when we are able to set a new date. We will also be postponing/suspending all meetings practices and fun nights through at least April 5th.
At our committee meeting this Wednesday, our chapter went over plans for the painting party. The committee discussed costs, and the party was going to cost us over $1000, while we expected to make less than $400 net profit.
The members decided that they would scrap the paint party and instead hold a bingo night. We will still be delivering scones and pies and will have other snacks and baked goods for sale at the event.
So come one all and join us for a rousing good time playing Bingo. We will have individual bingo cards and books of cards available that night. We would love to presale/ reserve cards so that we have an idea of how many people are coming, but walk-ins are welcome.
Our Chapter has been looking for fun ways to interact with our Masonic community and have come up with the idea of hosting a painting class similar to the Paint and Sip stores. – Obviously- since we are minors we won’t be having alcoholic beverages, but we will provide some finger foods and drinks and everything you need to create a gorgeous 16×20 painting. So come out and join us on April 3, at 7:30 pm at the West Volusia Shrine Club on 15A in Deland.
We have the price for the painting class and are trying to decide which painting to make. (You can give us your opinion at any of our events, or on FaceBook. The class is expensive, so we won’t be making much profit on the class. But we think it will be fun and hope you think so too.
To help support our chapter we are also hosting an online bake sale and will make our deliveries at the class. We will also have a raffle and 50-50 while we are there.
All baked goods will be delivered at the Painting Class on April 4, 2020.
To pay for the painting class click Add to Cart. A PayPal page will appear in another tab. Come back to this page to add bake sale items. You can adjust quantities and checkout with your credit/debit card or PayPal account.
We are trying to decide which painting to pick. Which do you like best?
We are looking for sponsors to help our top 3 officers get to BLAST this March.
This is a joint venture youth leadership training weekend between Georgia and Florida DeMolay. Our JBU Team has worked with the Georgia training staff to come up with a great program to help our members with Leadership, DeMolay Basics, Ritual, and Career Assistance. There will also be sessions for Adult Education and Training. We encourage each Chapter send at least one Councilor to this event, but EVERYONE is welcome to attend!
Information from Florida DeMolay – The Meridian Sun
Sion King (our Master Councilor for Aug. 2019- Jan. 2020) set a goal to raise $2000 this term. To motivate his brother DeMolay he told them that if they met that goal he would shave his head. Right now we have raised just under $1000 and he has roughly 1 month left in his term.
Last night he asked the guys to brainstorm ideas to raise the rest of the money.
We decided to hold some more fundraisers. Here’s how you can help:
Buy Krispy Kreme Donuts from us. You can either buy online or find a DeMolay and pre-order them. We will deliver them to you on Friday, January 17th, or Saturday January 18th.
Buy a coupon for one dozen Original Glazed® doughnuts. (Redeemable at participating Krispy Kreme retail shops only, not valid at grocery stores or other retail outlets that carry Krispy Kreme products.) ((This lets you buy now and eat later)). They are Convenient! Redeem your certificate anytime you visit Krispy Kreme.
Whether you buy a certificate or a dozen donuts from Dale Chapman DeMolay, you’re getting a great product and supporting your youth.
