K8D will be operating during the Ohio DeMolay Conclave, July 18-21, 2019 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Order of DeMolay. DeMolay, sponsored by Masonic groups, is for young men from 13 to 21 and named for Jacques DeMolay who was the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar in France. He is recognized for his fidelity to his vows and comrades. DeMolay teaches the seven cardinal virtues of filial love, reverence for sacred things, courtesy, comradeship, fidelity, cleanness and patriotism.
