VAN WERT — The members of Van Wert Chapter, Order of DeMolay will install the elected and appointed officers on Saturday, May 31 at 7 p.m. at an event open to the public. The chapter invites all to join them in this celebration of excellence which will take place at the Masonic center located above Mengerink’s Source for sports at the corner of East Main and Market Streets. The installing team will be lead by the International Master Councilor, Bob Laing.

The incoming leadership consists of Cade Chiles, Nick White, and Brock Berry. The Van Wert chapter has risen to be one of the foremost chapters of DeMolay in the state, held an outstanding DeMolay Month observance, has had impressive growth in membership, and will be the home chapter of the incoming state president, AJ Thomas.

The installation of officers takes about an hour, and refreshments will be served afterwards. The young men will be dressed in shirt and tie, and it is requested that guests will dress accordingly. Friends, family, sponsors, and others interested in DeMolay are welcome. Any questions may be directed to Dr. Kevin Laing, chapter advisor.
