Brother Knights:

I hope all of you have had a nice, relaxing and enjoyable summer with your families. As we are now into the month of September we need to think of our new Columbian Year and what is up and coming for your council. I look forward to working with Deputy Grand Knight Kevin Lopresti. We have had some discussions and would like to make our theme this year “The Year of the Family”. I would like your feed back as to what you would like to do as a family, including the extended family with grandchildren. Some ideas would be to go bowling, play softball, have a picnic, go swimming. I look forward to your ideas.

Donna remembers, way back, going to Edworthy Park on a Sunday when games were played and a big picnic took place. Those were the days when our council was thriving with young families but are now enjoying their grandchildren.

Thank you to the volunteers who come out so willingly to work the booths at the football games and special thanks to Bro. Randy Lopez and is wife Carolyn for taking on the chairmanship of this Stampeder Project. They are doing a great job and I ask that when Carolyn sends out a call for help that we step forward.

Thank you also to the Brother Knights who replied “YES” when I called and asked them to take on a position in the Service Programs. We want our council to be vibrant and  that can only happen by being involved and carrying out the various programs. These chairmen will require assistance throughout the year so again, please give a helping hand wherever needed.

This coming Wednesday, September 7th, 2011 we will have our first general meeting at the Council Chambers. I look forward to seeing you all there at 7:30
PM. Why not remind a Brother Knight to come who has not attended in a while and maybe even offer him a ride.

Henry Feddema, Grand Knight
