Paradise Valley DeMolay had their Installation September 27th at the Paradise Valley Masonic Lodge.
Mr. Shane Crabtree was the installing officer, installing his son, Dakotah Crabtree, for his second term as Master Councilor.
As PV Chapter’s outgoing Chapter Princess, I had the pleasure of installing Kristle Cowan (13) as PV’s new Chapter Princess. Chiara Hommel (22), outgoing Chapter Sweetheart, installed Kyra Rial (22 and current JMAJD) as PV Chapter’s new Chapter Sweetheart.
During presentations, Chiara and I presented Dakotah Crabtree, MC with a gift, as well as presenting Timothy Dougherty, outgoing Master Councilor, with a gag gift. The incoming Sweetheart, Kyra Rial, presented Dakotah with his mascot, a rat.
Dakotah’s theme for the term is Renaissance, and he explained that renaissance is a time for new beginnings, or a rebirth. He aims for his term to be a renaissance for PV DeMolay.
Afterwards, there was a reception. The tables were decorated to be renaissance themed, with crowns and swords as decorations. It was both fun and heartwarming, as Dakotah gave a final, touching, announcement during the reception.
This was an awesome installation, and I am honored to have served PV chapter as their Chapter Princess for the past year!
