DeMolay is a youth group of young men aged 12 to 21, established in 1919 after World War I. At that time there were many young men who had lost their fathers in the Great War, and founder Frank Land saw a need for these youths to have adult role models and mentors. DeMolay began with nine members, but within a few years it had grown into several states with hundreds of members.
Brother Shane Sterner, Senior Warden and Past Master of Sentinel Lodge #155, is now Dad Shane or Dad Sterner. Along with the Montana State Executive Director's Representative Trever Howard, Shane's goal is to revitalize a DeMolay Chapter headquartered in Missoula.
