84th Annual Conclave Closes

Conclave 2014 is in the past...

     With a rap of his gavel, the 84th Annual Connecticut DeMolay Conclave was declared closed by new State Master Councilor Nicholas S. Carpenter on Sunday July 13, 2014.

     Conclave was deemed a success by many who attended.  We saw much competition, much chapter enthusiasm, much chapter spirit, but most of all we saw much DeMolay Comradeship.

         Connecticut DeMolay was proud to host the Most Worshipful Grand Master of Masons in Connecticut, Dad Simon R. LaPlace.  Thanks, Dad LaPlace.

         Milford Chapter earned themselves the 2014 Mid-Year Growth Award.  Having brought 5 new members into DeMolay and has achieved net growth for the year.  Connecticut DeMolay is still working toward the goal of at least 54 by year end.

     Executive Officer's Award of Excellence was given to Mom Dori Stern for her work as registrar at the many DeMolay events (Conclave, Brotherhood Weekend, Winterfest and more) over the last 10 years - having touched the lives and improved the processes for all DeMolays during this time.  

     Another Executive Officer's Award of Excellence was awarded to the members and advisors of New Haven Chapter for having been the most improved chapter during the last year (Conclave to Conclave) - bringing 19 young men to Conclave this year was quite a feat and was well above and beyond the total from any other Chapter.

     Nathan Hale Chapter took home the coveted PSMC Conclave Chapter Spirit Award for their united display of chapter brotherhood and enthusiasm all weekend long  

     Marcus Anyafulu was awarded the Damian Becroft Conclave Sportsmanship Award "For conduct and attitude considered as befitting participation in sports, in life’s lessons and in living the precepts of the Order of DeMolay, especially fair play, courtesy, and gracefulness in victory and in defeat during this year’s Conclave.  This is an annual award that is presented at each Conclave in memory of Brother Damien Becroft, who exemplified all of this and more."
     Doric Chapter, for the 4th year in a row, emerged as the Conclave Winners.  Having dominated the sports field, the chapters placing in ritual did not stand a chance against this "dynasty".
     Sleeping Giant Chapter took 2nd place, New Haven Chapter came in 3rd.
Congratulations to all and Thank You for a memorable weekend.
