North Shore Chapter Seeking
Volunteers for Topsfield Fair Booth
North Shore Chapter has a booth at the Topsfield Fair. They are seeking volunteers to help staff the open times. They are hoping that you may have time to help with a shift at our booth. They are in great need of assistance. The open shifts and schedule can be downloaded. Click Here.
For those who do work a shift the Chapter will give you a ticket to get in and cover your parking expense. Pick a shift, get in for free and stay after your shift for the fair and have a "Free" day. That sounds like a lot of fun.

Worcester Chapter Helps the
Community of Brimfield Recover
Worcester Chapter journeyed to the Town of Brimfield to help out the community in general and Mom & Dad Ricci in particular. Mom and Dad Ricci where
impacted directly from the tornado that struck western Massachusetts. They had a very successful event in which Worcester DeMolay made an impression on the town of Brimfield. DeMolays removed 10 trees in less than four hours. Even the volunteers from Northern Tree Company were impressed with the work the young men did and how fast they did it without any hesitation. Job well done.

New Membership Program
State Master Councilor Timothy W. Nogueira and his team of state officers have developed a new Prospect Party In-A-Box program. This program is a re-write and update of a similiar program employed in 2008.
The idea is to give to the Chapters all the tools and instruction necessary to properly plan and execute a Prospect Party. In the box are the resources to plan a membership drive, to train members how to speak intelligently about DeMolay and to answer questions from propsective members and parents as well. Tim has also added a Powerpoint on retaining new members once they join.
The State Officers will be hand delivering this program to each Chapter during their regular visitations. Plan time to let the State Officers go over the contents and the implimentation with your membership. This is a creative and imaginative program that is designed to jump start the efforts of your Chapter in membership.
If Tim or his State Officers do not get to your Chapter fast enough, please do not hesitate to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
