     From Your State Master Councilor:

Brethren of Ohio DeMolay,

    supporting that event to the fullest. It is truly an honor to serve you as your

    State Master Councilor. We will be starting a new program on the State Council

    Congratulations to the

    From Your State Scribe:

    Hello Brothers of Ohio DeMolay,

     Wow, I can not believe how much fun I had at Conclave this past year. I hope that everyone had as much fun

    as I did. I have a feeling that every State Event this year is going to be a blast, and the most fun that you have ever had

    in DeMolay. The State Officers had an extremely successful retreat weekend, and are hard at work making sure that

    you have the most fun you have ever had in DeMolay.

     This year I would like to see every chapters Installation and Inspection advertised in the E-connection, as well

    as any and all events that Chapters and Districts would like to invite all of Ohio DeMolay to participate at. I know that

    if we just advertise the events in your home chapters that the attendance will increase and we can help Ohio DeMolay

    all over the state grow and have tons of fun. So any activities that you want everyone to know about, just send me an

    email, or let a State Officer or District Representative in your area know about the activity, so they can let me know.

     Lastly, this year I will be traveling with the Ohio DeMolay Picture Board. You may have seen this at

    conclave over the last few years. I would like to see every chapter represented on that board, so send in any pictures

    that you would like to show off to the State, and I will make sure that it gets posted on the Picture Board. But please

    remember that they must be DeMolay appropriate pictures. Well that’s all I have for this month, I look forward to

    seeing everyone around the state, and may God Bless all of you and your families.

     In DeMolay Service,

     Joseph R. Rehnert

    From Your State Senior Councilor:

    My Brothers of Ohio DeMolay,

     Greetings from your State Senior Councilor. As I am now in charge of fund raising, I would

    like to tell you about the traveling DeMolay and More Store. Wherever I travel, the store travels with

    me. I have t-shirts, window stickers, and a small supply of DeMolay bobble heads left. This year, we

    are introducing new DeMolay hoodies. Since it is getting colder, you can stay in style, keep warm, and

    show everyone your love for Ohio DeMolay. I will be traveling around as much as possible, so you

    will have an opportunity to check out the merchandise. I am really excited about this year and I know

    that it's going to be a lot of fun. I am counting on everyone to work as a team to raise money for Ohio

    DeMolay. E-mail me ( with any questions you have.
