Grand Knight’s Message for April 2018

My Brothers,

By the time you read this message, I should be on a boat in the Eastern Caribbean.

March was a busy month for all of us. We had St Patrick’s Day dinner, Recruitment drive, and the Easter egg hunt.

The St. Patrick’s Day Dinner was quite a success. We cleared approximately $1892.00 and everyone had a great meal and a lot of fun with the story telling. Brother Molinari will give us a full accounting at the next business meeting.

The membership Drive was the most successful drive we have had in quite some time.  We have 7-8 Catholic Gentlemen attending there First Degree prior to our next business meeting on April 10th.  It’s important that all attend to show these new brothers our commitment and strength.

I want to thank Tom McGaw for his continuing success in increasing our membership. We have had a great year in recruiting.  I would like to acknowledge his team who know the importance of recruitment and volunteered to help.

Info Booth:  Brothers Aaron Fausone, Doug Cooper, Ed Kilgore, Jerry Bordessa, and Frank Quinn

I was at the Easter Egg Hunt on March 31st.  It was well organized and well attended by our brothers and of course the children and their families.  Thanks to Brother Jerry Matacia and to the Squires and Squire Roses for their help and to our Rabbit, Matthew Matacia, who had a great impression on the children. Job well done.

Thanks to all who helped during Easter services. The church was packed and I know Fr. Michael appreciated our presences.

A reminder of the Blood Bank drive sponsored by us on Sunday April 15th. GIVE BLOOD.  Blood donations save life’s.

Congrats to Brother Ed Kilgore who was the big winner at social night.  I was dealer have way through the night.

A reminder that the Grand Knights Barbeque has been moved to June 12th due to the confirmation ceremony being held on May 8th.  We still will have our normal business meeting, but parking may be a problem. The Deputy Grand Knight, Dave Dibble, will be conducting the April Business meeting due to my vacation.

God Bless

Michael P. McBride, Grand Knight
