The San Jose Scottish Rite Bodies can take pride in their sponsorship of the San Jose DeMolay Chapter #1, which, incidentally, is the oldest DeMolay chapter in California. The Chapter, which had been dormant for several years, became active in November 2009 with the initiation of 3 boys at the Grand Master’s Class. Their first project was a Super Bowl party last February at the San Jose Masonic Center, which resulted in a successful, fun-filled afternoon for approximately 65 youngsters.
On August 15, the Chapter held an “Iron Chef” competition at the San Jose Masonic Center, which drew 125 paid visitors and netted them over $1000. The contest featured teams from 5 lodges, California #1, Three Great Lights #651, Golden Rule #479, Willow Glen Fraternity #399 and Santa Cruz San Lorenzo #38. The judging was accomplished by 3 professional chefs, all of whom having experience in international culinary competition.
Those attending this event were treated to a fine buffet provided by Brother Gregg Hall. The winner of the competition was the team from Golden Rule Lodge #479, with Santa Cruz San Lorenzo Valley #38 and California #1 placing 2nd and 3rd respectively.
The active members of the chapter advisory council, chaired by  David Cohen, 32°, are Daniel Marcussen, Richard Fisher, 32° KCCH, Harvey Macinich, 32°,Joe Campbell,32°, Bret Welch,32° and Richard A. Meyers, 32° KCCH. Any member of the Valley is welcomed to attend our combined (chapter and advisory council) meetings, which are held on the first and third Tuesday evenings, at 7:00 p.m., in the library.
