Grand Knight’s letter November 2018
Greetings Brothers and Sisters ,
I really do not know where to begin this letter. First, I have to thank God for letting me know there was something wrong with me and for the doctors, nurses, aides, and lab techs who found out what it was and treated it. But most of all, I thank you for your support during the process and for your prayers, which helped me beyond measure. I thank you all and my love is something you can be sure of.
A few events took place while I was out of commission:
The Admission Degree – thanks to Cliffy, Frank & Phil for filling in.
The Greco benefit – Jeanmarie, the energy you put into an event is mind-blowing; Lou McGraw, your efforts to bring this to life were awesome.
The basis of the Knights is charity; Father McGiveny started the Knights to help the members of the community and we continued this tradition with the benefit for the Greco family. I do not know exactly how much was raised but I know we served our founder well.
There are several events taking place now for which we can show our support. One is our drive to raise monies to bring your service personnel home for the holidays. We are selling magnets to raise these funds. Pick up some of the magnets and sell them to co-workers, family and friends.
A second event is “Coats for Kids.” Your donation of new and slightly used coats will be distributed through Catholic Charities to our local neighbors.
Before Thanksgiving, we will again be working with St. Al’s to distribute food baskets to our neighbors in need of a holiday meal.
We will be providing the cooking staff for the Mega 50-/50 dinner at St. Veronica’s. Check with PGK Victor Salvo see how you can help.
Our Past Grand Knight dinner is coming up. This is our chance to show PGK Dave Idank and PCCP Rich Russo how much we have been enriched by their leadership. If you want to help support this event, there is an ad journal; see one of the officers for a form.
The Council is holding a “Formation (2nd) Degree” and I believe it is our duty as fellow brothers to support these individuals on their way to full Knighthood. So be there for them – and for yourself – as this is a great renewal.
Russ Taylor, Grand Knight
