NJ DeMolay enjoyed a successful trip to Alexandria for DeMolay Congress and DeMolay International Session.  The Congress presented a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and enjoyed an evening tour of the various monuments around the National Mall.  Congress also held their meetings at the George Washington Masonic Memorial and NJ was well represented by our Congress delegates, PSMC Jake Singleton and SMC Matthew Gahagan.
