My Brother Knights at the Union Knights of Columbus,
Now that the holidays and Super Bowl are over it’s time for the Council to get active again. A successful New Year’s Eve party and Super Bowl party were run by the Columbian Club. Thank yous are in order for those brothers who made these events happen.
The council has a couple new and hopefully exciting events coming up.
First, we’re going to try something new to attract new members to our order. On Sunday March 8th at 1:00PM we’re going to run a membership event at the council. We will show a 40 minute movie about Father McGivney and the founding of the order followed by brief talks by the Grand Knight, Membership Director and Fraternal Benefits representative. While our goal is to bring in new members via this event; it will also give an opportunity for all of us to get a reminder of what the Knights of Columbus are and why we were founded and continue to thrive. The event is open to all prospective members and their families. We will advertise in our local churches but it would be great if you promote this event to gentlemen who you feel would be an asset to this Council.
Second, on Monday April 27th at 8:15 PM we will forego a second business meeting and have a social meeting open to all. We will have a guest speaker, Ed Lucas. Ed is a legendary New York baseball writer who has interviewed everyone from Joe DiMaggio to Mayor Giuliani in his 55 year career. He has accomplished all of this despite being blind. Ed Lucas is a motivational speaker who has a very interesting and powerful message to deliver. I would encourage you to come out and hear his message.
And of course, there is the Union County St. Patrick's Day Parade festivities at the Council Hall on Saturday March 14th.
Our monthly family dinners continue to be a success. They are held the 3rd Thursday of each month at 6:30 PM except in the summer. The menu varies but is always good and is a true bargain. Come on out and bring the family.
As you can see there is a lot going on at Union Council.
Come on out and support our events and get involved.
