Dear Brothers and Sisters in Columbianism,

            Last Columbian year, the Council borrowed $5000 dollars from the Student Loan account, this was done with the approval of membership. Well I’m happy to announce that on June 30th right before the Columbian year ended the Council was able to pay back the Student Loan account in full. I thank each member for their support during the year.

Last month, I spoke about the importance of involvement in our Council and call to action from our members and young members that we do not see often. This still holds strong for this month, my Brother Knights we need your help to push forward. Our membership committee is working hard to increase our new members. Both Supreme and State councils have setup a new goal for us to achieve during the 1st quarter. Supreme has established a recruiter’s award program, any member that brings in 1 new member will receive a Pope Francis medallion and 2000 VIP points, or any member that brings in 5 new members will receive a Pope Francis medallion and 10,000 VIP points. On the State level,  the council that brings in 5 new members by October 1st, 2015 will receive 10% off their State Per-Capita, also the council that recruits over the 5 new members in each major conference will receive $500 donation to the Seminarian of our choice. Both these programs are a great way for us to increase our membership and way to get all our brother’s involved in the Council. Please pick up your membership applications and sign up a new member!

This Columbian year we will be changing a few items at the meetings. 1st -  Membership Cards, Sign-In book and 50/50 will all take place prior to the start of the meeting, please use the front door of the American Legion. 2nd -  we will going back to our repast taking place after the meeting. My brothers, we are currently looking for a Lecturer if anyone is interested please see me.

Update on the Convent: on June 27th a working party was put together to clean out the Convent. We cleaned out about 85% of the convent basement. All that remains is the board room supplies. Thank you to all who came out to help. After speaking with the American Legion we were able to work out a deal with for us to use their garage for storage. All our belongings are here with us, thank you to the American Legion for working with us.

I thank you for your continued support and let us in Charity, Unity, and Fraternity move to a brighter future!

Vivat Jesus
