On Sunday, April 6, 2008, new officers were installed at the Ethan Allen Chapter, Order of DeMolay, which is sponsored by Fidelity Lodge. Nicholas Gasorek, age 13, of Weehawken, was installed as Master Councilor, succeeding his brother Christopher, age 17, who had served over the previous year. Matthew Duglin, age 17 of Upper Saddle River, was installed as Senior Councilor, and Simon Kramer, age 13 of Oradell, was installed as Junior Councilor. The ceremony took place at the lodge and was conducted by current and past senior officers and advisors of the state organization including Bruce Golway, Assistant Executive Officer, and Richard Peterson, Honorary State Master Councilor. New Jersey Executive Officer Lee Beattys presided over the evening’s activities, which were attended by family, friends and representatives from related Masonic organizations. The ceremony was accompanied by Mrs. Rita Birne on the organ.

Lewis Gasorek, father of Nicholas, presented him with his gavel. James Chwalyk, Jr. of Bloomfield presented the “Shield Talk”, while Joseph Hill of Bergenfield performed “Ceremony of Light” service honoring the seven values of the organization, which include filial love, comradeship, courtesy, and patriotism.

Nicholas commented on the evening, “It was a wonderful night celebrating the Ethan Allen Chapter’s success with so many family and friends. We will continue to actively participate in community service projects, such as the recent Child Identification Event at Fidelity Lodge, while have fun playing sports, attending dances, and continuing our leadership in local and national public speaking competitions. I look forward to leading the chapter in these and other activities this year.”

Following the installation ceremony, merit bar awards were presented to six chapter members who had successfully completed the requirements for the honors that cover different areas of chapter and community service. The members receiving awards were: Nicholas Gasorek (11 merit bars), Joseph Hill (10), Matthew Duglin (10), Christopher Gasorek (9), Daniel McGrady, Jr. of Dumont (5), and Simon Kramer (4).
