What Are Squires of The Round Table?
Established in 1995, the Order of The Squires of the Round Table was established to allow young men from the ages 9-12 to participate in the fun of DeMolay without the ritual work and longer meetings that are a part of DeMolay.
The Olympia Squires meet at 7:00 pm the second Monday of each month at 521 North St SE, Tumwater WA.
How A Manor Runs:
There are up to seven Squire Officers, three of whom are elected by their peers. Elected Officers are Master Squire, Senior Squire, and Junior Squire. Appointed Officers are Squire Chaplain, Squire Marshall, Squire Recorder, and Squire Treasurer. During each term of four months, the Master Squire should plan at least one fun activity and at least one fund raising activity. The events must be approved by the Sir Knight and the Squire Advisor. A Squire Advisor, who is a member of the Chapter Advisory Council, must be present at all Squire meetings and functions. He or she should sit on the sidelines, and is mainly the advisor for the Sir Knight, allowing the Sir Knight and the elected officers to run the meeting.
The Squire Emblem
The Squire emblem is a round circle emblematic of the Squires of the Round Table and is divided into four sections. The first section in the left-hand corner is a DeMolay emblem because if there was no DeMolay, there would be no Squires. In the upper right hand corner is a gavel, which represents the gavel of justice held by the Master Squire during the meetings. In the bottom left hand corner is a sword emblematic of the sword of truth held by the Senior Squire during the meetings. Last, in the lower right hand corner are the books of wisdom which are held by the Junior Squire during the meetings.
