My Brother Knights at the Union Knights of Columbus,
Spring has finally arrived as has our religion’s holiest season, Easter. It is important to remember that Christ our Savior died for us on Good Friday. The Easter season is the time for us all to reflect on that fact and remind ourselves that we are created in God’s image. We should all strive to be the best Catholics that we can be. We as brother knights should remember the principles of our order, Charity, Unity and Fraternity and practice them to the best of our abilities.
With the coming of Spring also comes the beginning of outdoor activities at the Council. The pool opens on Memorial Day weekend so it’s time to renew your membership if you have not already do so. There is a lot of work that needs to be done around the grounds in order for you to enjoy the facilities. Work parties have started so if you can spare a few hours on a Saturday to help out please do. Your help is appreciated and needed. Many hands make the job easier.
The nominating committee for the next Columbian year has begun the work of finding officers to lead Union Council in 2015 – 2016. If you have interest in serving as an officer please let the committee know. The coming year is one in which there are several positions to fill due to the retirement of some long time officers. If you’ve been on the fence about stepping up now is the time to get off the fence and lend your Council a hand.
I will mention one more time that 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.
Union Council is going strong but needs the support of all of you. Please come out and support our events and get involved.
