January 1, 2012 - December 31, 2012
2012 was a year that saw the Chapter membership almost double, and did see the first ever Frank Marshall Championship Tournament Championship Banners claimed by the Chapter. It saw the Dixon Squire Manor # 3 of the Order of the Squires of the Round Table complete its first full year. The Chapter took part in every major Texas DeMolay event throughout the year, and our very own Tony Peebler became the District Deputy State Master Councilor for District 5 (Houston Area). During this time, the District began to come to life with District initiations held at Reagan and Houston Chapters, A District wide Masquerade Ball at Pasadena Chapter, A Texas DeMolay officers seminar at John Wayne Chapter. The Chapter continued its charitable work with Relay for Life and the Alvin-Manvel Food Pantry. There were numerous events during the year, which are highlighted with news stories below, or in the 2012 photo gallery.
