June 7th, 2022 General Meeting Minutes
GRAND KNIGHT’S REPORT: As Knights you have contributed much to our church and to our community and I am proud to have served as your Grand Knight these past two years. We will have officer elections tonight and this council will continue doing great things under new leadership. We’ve had a busy past couple of months and this month will be no different, our church’s 48th anniversary picnic had a great turn out on a beautiful day, resulting in a successful event. We served hundreds of hungry parishioners and I believe that with our presence and our participation, we are helping to restore confidence in our parish as a safe and fun place for friends and family to gather again. Since the pandemic it has been a bit of a uphill battle to get people back out but it was really wonderful to see a lot of people show up this past Sunday.
Brothers are council was chartered in June 1982 and that means that this month marks our 40th anniversary we intend to mark that milestone with a big celebration on Saturday June 18th at 5:00 PM. We will start the evening with corporate communion mass and follow it with a banquet complete with catered food live musical and entertainment and wine and beer will be served. This will be an elegant evening and an opportunity for the 4th degree to wear their tuxedos, for the rest the dress code will be black tie optional, suit and tie. Our program will include a tribute to our past and present clergy as well as honor our past Grand Knights. All past clergy have been invited as have all our past Grand Knights including an invitation sent out to our Bishop Edward Burns. We will end the evening with the presentation of the Knight of the Year award. The past recipients of the Knight of the Year award have been entrusted with selecting this year’s recipient.
