Grand Knight’s letter December 2018
Greetings Brothers and Sisters ,
As your Worthy Acting Grand Knight I am writing this Newsletter with a heavy heart. Words cannot express my sadness on the loss of our Brother Worthy Grand Knight Russ Taylor. Russ put up a noble fight but in His infinite Wisdom, God had some other plan for Russ to accomplish. May he rest in peace. My deepest condolences go out to his family.
Please keep Russ and his Wife Ann & Family in your thoughts and prayers.
As we move into December I just want to reflect on all the past activities we had in the month of November. We are one busy Council!
Our Deceased Members Mass was held at St Veronica’s Chapel on November 2nd. A special thanks to Father Euk for having the Mass and Linda Salvi for leading us in song. Thanks also to PGK Barry Kakos and Pat O’Connor for their devotion on reading the names of our deceased members of Council #6201.
The Formation/2nd Degree was held on November 7th led by the Formation Degree Team of Brian Curran. We had six Brothers making their Formation Degree. Thank you, Brian and Team, for your commitment.
On November 10th my Brother Knights cooked for the St Veronica’s 50/50 Dinner Dance. A special thanks to PGK Victor Salvi and his team of cooks. We had a great time as usual!
Our Ladies Auxiliary is in full swing and had a Pallet Painting Party on Wednesday November 14th. It was a successful event with 23 ladies participating.
The Thanksgiving Food Baskets was held on Saturday November 17th and we had a great turnout of Brother Knights and their Families to help the less fortunate at Thanksgiving. We fed 30 families. I was glad to be a part of it again this year. Thanks to PGK Bob Clifford and all who came out to help with this event.
Iron Couples Knight was another fun event held on Saturday November 14th. I had never participated before, but it was definitely a fun evening. Thanks to Steve Stazko and Family for hosting it again this year.
Moving into December we begin the Month with the start of Advent and beginning of the Christmas season.
We have the Christmas Tree Lighting coming up on Friday, December 7th. There will be no Rosary or Social Meeting that night but come out and bring your family to sing some Christmas Carols and help decorate the Christmas Tree. We will have some cookies, cake and hot chocolate as we celebrate the birth of Christ. It will begin at 7pm so please mark your calendars.
The very next day Saturday, December 8th is the PGGK and PCCP Dinner to honor PGK David Idank and PCCP Rich Russo. Please come out and thank both Brothers for all their accomplishments and for the outstanding job they did last year. Remember this is also the Feast of the Immaculate Conception and is a Holy Day of Obligation. Please see both Church bulletins for the mass schedule.
Breakfast with Santa is on Saturday December 16th. Yours truly will be in the kitchen along with Santa’s helpers whipping up pancakes and other breakfast treats! Hosted by the Bradleys!
The Adult Christmas Party will be held right after the Business Meeting on Friday December 21st and most importantly the Christmas Food baskets will be held on Saturday December 22nd. From what Bob Clifford tells me we are feeding 146+ Families this year. If you never participated in anything at the council this year you will want to do this. Please bring your families to our Council home to help assemble “baskets” at 9 am. This by far in my opinion is one of the best events and truly brings the message of what Christmas is all about.
Old Timers Reunion will be held in the afternoon on Saturday December 22nd. Come out and meet some of the Brothers that helped make this Council to what it is today.
Finally, please keep an eye on the calendar on the K of C website for updated events.
For the latest news expect a few e mails to come your way.
To all my Brothers and Their Families. Have a very Merry and Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year!
Tom Raulinavich, Worthy Acting Grand Knight
