More and more Master Masons and Senior DeMolays coming from the different Masonic Lodges and DeMolay Chapters in the Philippines are giving their individual pledges and commitments to the DeMolay Centennial Crusades. This time, delegates and participants to the Southern Luzon Masonic Multi-District Convention that was held on October 4-5, 2018 at the Legazpi City Convention Center in Legazpi City, Albay have signed up as Frank S. Land Centennial Fellows and Jacques DeMolay Centennial Fellows.
