Wisconsin DeMolay's Centennial is Here!

 

In 1922 Wisconsin DeMolay was founded with the very first chapter being located in Kenosha, WI.  Over the years Wisconsin DeMolay grew and grew until at it’s peak, Wisconsin DeMolay hosted over 50 chapters within the state of Wisconsin.  In 2022 Wisconsin DeMolay will be celebrating our 100 year legacy of the outstanding leaders that have been produced through their time in Wisconsin DeMolay.  Join us in celebrating 100 years!

 

Expect a whole host of different activities to come from Wisconsin DeMolay over this next year such as our Centennial Advisor Conference in January, the Centennial Lottery, and some amazing additions to Sweetheart Weekend and Conclave! We hope that you will celebrate with us as we look back on our past 100 years.

Wisconsin DeMolay Centennial Lottery!

Your State Officers have decided to create something special for our Centennial Year with the Centennial Lottery, a membership incentive program that will reward our members simply for being active within DeMolay!

Members can gain tickets from January 3, 2022, to March 26th, 2022, by doing various activities such as attending a chapter meeting or being the 1st line signer on a new member, that can be used to go into a lottery for an epic array of prizes that the State Officers have hand-picked based on many of the interests of our members. Members will be allowed to choose what prizes their tickets go to!

Some of our big lottery items include the current generation gaming systems, tickets to Great America, and much more! View all the information below!

How to Earn Tickets

As mentioned above, Active DeMolay’s will be able to earn tickets based off different activities they do in DeMolay. We want to reward them simply for being an active member of the organization and some of our ticket earning activities reflect that so that if members only want to attend chapter meetings, they still will be able to participate.

Tickets should be tracked by Chapter Advisors and Submitted to the Operations Coordinator. Please use the spreadsheet here as an example
