Matthew Killmer, Roseville Chapter

Running for Master Councilor

Hi!  I’m Matthew Killmer, Past Master Councilor and soon-to-be Chevalier of Roseville DeMolay and I am running for the office of Nor Cal DeMolay’s Master Councilor. I have been to DLC for the past 8 years…5 years as a camper, 1 year as a Knight, and 2 years on Staff. Each of these years I had the opportunity to learn more about myself, DeMolay, and gained the experience to help me be a better leader. As your Master Councilor, my main goals are to improve the jurisdiction by empowering the chapters.  This will be through encouraging mentorship between members and initiates, getting members more excited about ritual to improve the public image of the jurisdiction, and by expanding the reach of communication by utilizing more social media as well as the Divisional Representatives.  I want to serve the members of Nor Cal and help give them the power to make change happen in Nor Cal DeMolay, because I know it truly starts with them.

Hello, Northern California DeMolay! I’m Natasha Franzen and I’m running to be your jurisdictional Sweetheart. Currently I am serving as the Superior Division Sweetheart. I’m a past Chapter Sweetheart of Valdo A Sei, a Past Honored Queen of Bethel #2, Reno, and a Past Miss Nevada Job’s Daughter. I continue to be a very active supporter of my home chapter and member of Ben Franklin assembly, #21, and Bethel #2, Reno. If elected to serve as your jurisdictional Sweetheart for the ensuing year, my primary goal would be to lay the foundation for a strong and productive relationship between all of the Masonic Youth groups, that could be built upon and enjoyed for many years to come. I hope to incentivize and encourage Chapters to reach out to the many Assemblies and Bethels within our jurisdiction. I’d look to provide the resources necessary to eliminate any possible roadblocks that the youth orders may face in communicating with each other and attending each other’s events. I’d also like to take the time to appreciate and assist the young women who have already elected to devote their efforts to the Sweetheart program, making sure that they have the most meaningful experience possible. Above all, I’d like to help you to cultivate the positive relationships that will make a difference in your Chapter and in your life. I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish together.
