Greetings Worthy Brothers!
We start another new Columbian year with many things to accomplish. I want to thank you for trusting me with being your new Grand Knight and I know that together we can make this year another success!
Fortunately, many of the events and projects planned, are the same as last year so get ready to do it again with the same gusto.
I would like to give a shout out to Br. Dennis Bauer, who answered the call to: 1) buy 14 cases of water and 2) deliver those bottles of water downtown to San Diego High School, Monday, July 17th for the Stand Down Project to help Homeless Veterans in San Diego.
Thanks again Br. Dennis. Thanks too, goes to Br. Paul Marquie who took time to try to secure some water for us through the St. Vincent de Paul Society. It did not work out unfortunately.
Here is a list of events coming up very soon:
I have made some additions to this website in order to streamline and reduce the newsletter that you normally receive. Many of the items featured in the previous newsletter are now found on the homepage, such as members birthdays, attendance drawing, prayer warriors, meeting schedules and many others like this Grand Knights Report are now on this website. My intention is to have everyone use this website as much as possible.
I would like to encourage everyone who will chair an event or project, to fill out a service award form as soon as the event is completed-while it is still fresh in your memory. There is a downloadable State form located on the homepage that can be filled out online and then attached to an email to me. I have also created a page that has a simplified state form that anyone can just fill out the information that is required and then hit "submit":
[http://www.kofc9332valledeoro.org/ca-state-service-awards-form.html] Once you hit submit, your form is sent to me at my email. I will then transcribe it. What I am trying to stress is for those who chair an event to get that information to me and the Service Award committee, ASAP! So we don't have the last minute rush in March. Thanks in advance.
I have also added or revived some social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for our council. Links to them are in the "accordion" box on the home page. Just click on the last line with+. If you haven't been to a meeting in a while, please come and get involved in YOUR Council!
So brothers, we've got our work cut out for us. Together we can make this Council shine next May at the State Convention in Sacramento!
