The PA Masonic Youth Foundation directly supports three Masonic Youth Groups – Pennsylvania DeMolay, the Order of the Rainbow for Girl’s in Pennsylvania, and the Order of Job’s Daughters in Pennsylvania. It also provides programs and assistance to the Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania and Deborah Grand Chapter, Order of the Eastern Star, PHA, with their Masonic Youth Groups – the Knights of Pythagoras and the Ruth Mitchell Tucker Girls Youth Department. These five Masonic Youth Groups get together several times throughout the year to share ideas, discuss projects, and plan activities together.
On the weekend of April 25 – 27, 2014, the PMYF hosted the five Masonic Youth Groups at Patton Campus, in Elizabethtown, PA, for a Masonic Youth Unity weekend. The event, planned by the Youth Leaders of the groups involved, covered important topics such as membership, understanding each organization, and planning joint events. Fun activities were also included, like a talent show and board games. While the young people worked through their program, the adult leaders of the groups also met to discuss best practices and the latest challenges that come with working with youth.
The weekend was very productive and well received by all. Thank you the Masonic Family in Pennsylvania for providing such an excellent opportunity for youth from across the Commonwealth to share ideas.
Special thanks to Mr. Danny Bryant, an adult leader with the Knights of Pythagoras, for taking photos for the weekend and providing them to PMYF for use.
