As part of a complete program to bring awareness of the Order of DeMolay before his home lodge, “Dad” Scott Gilligan presented a video that outlined the creation of our organization, and then directed a Q&A session with the members of his Lodge. It is only with the direct support of PA Freemasons like those found in Brotherhood Lodge, that our Masonic Youth program continues to thrive, making these young men better sons, and junior citizens.
