Grand Knight’s letter June 2018
Brothers, as we start this new Columbian year and the beginning of my term as your Grand Knight, I ask for your prayers for the Council and myself. I first want to say thanks to prior Grand Knights for all their advice and thoughts, which I hope will continue. I will also rely on you brothers to help maintain the esteem and respect the Council 6201 holds.
The month of June saw the Council provide the meat and cook for the St. Aloysius Family Picnic Ministry (thou the turnout was light, due to the weather), this was the first time, and the Ministry hopes to make it an annual event. We also hosted the 10th Annual Motorcycle Run, that benefits the Caregivers Volunteers of Central Jersey. We have worked with the Motorcycle Ministry, who have run the event all 10 years and it is an event which I personally enjoy, and I am glad we can help them raise monies for this great cause. The weather started off a bit dreary, but it turned out to be a beautiful day and the ride was well attended.
As we are coming more into the Media age, the way we will be communicating with you about programs and events will be advancing also. We currently use email as a major method to inform you of what the Council is doing and/or planning to do. Our council web site (www.kofc621.com) has much information about current and upcoming events.
The months of July and August are considered our slow months, with families on vacation, the long warm days at the beach and time to spend with our family. It is also a time to refresh ourselves, getting ready for the rest of the Columbian year. A barbeque will be held at the club on Independence Day (bring side dishes or desserts). The installation of Council Officers and of the newly reformed Ladies Auxiliary will be held on July 14th after the 5PM Mass at St. Al’s. There will be dinner after at the club. Our venerable founder Fr. McGivney birthday is the 12th and Assumption Day is on August 14th.
So rest up and become refresh so that the Council can continue it great work for our community and church.
Lastly, I would ask you, if you have any ideas on how the Council can be of service to our communities, churches or a fellow brother or family, please let me or one of your officers hear from you. My email is email@example.com and my cell is 732-278-6217; I take texts and will respond as soon as I am able.
God blessing and please pray for all those in need.
