My Brother Knights at the Union Knights of Columbus,
It’s difficult to believe that the summer season is already over. Time sure flies when you’re having fun. And much fun was had by all over the last two months. There were many successful and well attended events held. A first time lobster fest sold out the 150 tickets available and got rave reviews. A trip to Citifield also sold out. Two splash parties were held and were very well attended. A fishing trip and two trips to Monmouth Park were also conducted. Sangria nights were held twice and also were well attended. Pool membership was up to 205 members. Our members took over the operation of the snack stand and it too did very well. The weather was very good most of the summer. Bottom line … things are going well at Union Council and I take this opportunity to thank all those who worked to make these events the successes that they were. This goes to show what can be accomplished when we come together with our focus being on the good of the council and it’s members and their families.
The ceiling tile replacement project in the hall was completed over the summer. Come to one of our meetings on the 2nd and 4th Monday of every month and check out our brothers’ hard work. Thanks again to the brothers who put in countless hours accomplishing this task.
The next two major events are our annual family picnic on Saturday, September 13 and the annual Past Grand Knight’s dinner on Saturday October 11 to honor PGK Steve Nagy. I urge all of you to come out and support these events. Details on them are elsewhere in the digest. Please come on out and keep the momentum going. There are other events and physical improvements in the planning stages.
I am thrilled to be Grand Knight during this very positive period of time. Please help us keep the positive momentum going by helping at events or at a minimum coming to events and meetings. This is a great time to be a member of Union Council. Come on out and join the fun.
