Greetings Brother Knights,
Next month we will be holding our spring membership drive, on the weekend of March 17 – 18. Do you know any Catholic men who are not members of the order? Don't wait until that weekend to ask them if they are Knights. Speak to them and tell them about the benefits of membership. We need more young men to join us and more family men as well. We need new people with fresh ideas so that we can progress as a Council. It take two people to have a conversation, and one of those people has to start it. Why not start a conversation over coffee after Mass? You just may be the first person who's approached a potential new member, and you'll never know until you start the conversation.
We need ideas for fund-raising. Every month we get requests from organizations that need financial assistance. We cannot help if we have no income. It's difficult to turn down such requests. So far we've been lucky because we've had sufficient funds to enable us to make a contribution, but we must also find new ways to add to our general accounts.
The next function on our agenda is the ever-popular Pasta Night. It's a terrific evening of fun for the whole family, and it is always a sell-out. If you can help please volunteer. It's so rewarding, especially when you see how much fun the children have.
Al Girard, Grand Knight
