History of DeMolay Mothers' Circle

The Advisory Council of a Chapter may organize a Mothers’ Circle. The Mothers’ Circle of Albert Pike Chapter No. 58 was organized in April 1936. “The purpose of a Mothers’ Circle is to cooperate with, and assist the Advisory Council of the Chapter in promoting the welfare of the Chapter and its members, to serve the Chapter, and strengthen the interest of the members of DeMolay and their aims toward higher standards of thinking and living, and to provide the things which only a mother’s interest and woman’s hand can accomplish.” The Mothers’ Circle of Albert Pike Chapter No. 58 was organized in April, 1936.
