My Brother Knights at the Union Knights of Columbus,
I would like to start this month’s message with a very heartfelt thank you to all those who made this year’s family picnic the huge success that it was. Despite the rainy weather about 300 people came out for the event. The food was fantastic, the entertainment was great and a good time was had by all. This again shows what happens when we come together as a community and make good things happen. Again thank you to all who labored so long and so hard.
We had a successful fund raiser at the Red Cadillac on September 17th in which a percentage of the revenues taken in from brother Knights and their family and friends by Red Cadillac will be donated to our Citizens with Intellectual Disabilities Fund. This demonstrates the first principle of our order, Charity. We at Union Council work hard throughout the year to raise funds to help those in need. I want to thank Joe Montes of Red Cadillac for supporting us in this effort. We run many such fund raising events throughout the year. Please come out and support those local businesses who support us.
Our next major event is our Past Grand Knight’s dinner on October 11th honoring our immediate Past Grand Knight, Steve Nagy. For just $25 per person you can share in the evening. There will be food, entertainment and again a good time. Don’t miss out! Details are elsewhere in the Digest.
I am once again happy to report that everything is going well at Union Council and this is a great time to be a member. On that note be sure to approach every Catholic man you know about joining in fulfilling the mission of the Knights of Columbus. We are hosting a first degree at Union Council on October 15th and would love to have a large attendance. If you enjoy your membership please share it with your family and associates. The more committed members we have, the better we become. Charity, Unity and Fraternity are the first three principles and we work hard to fulfill our mission. The more hands we have lifting the load, the lighter is the load for each hand. Please join in.
