Dear Brothers and Sisters in Columbianism,


I would like to thank the membership for attending the special meeting last month to discuss the future of our Council. We had a packed house and there was a great exchange of ideas and concerns for our future.  As you know we are in the process of selling our building. During the meeting which focused only on the Council, many questions were raised that could only be answered by the Home Association in regards to the building. In response to the many questions being asked the membership formally petitioned the Home Association, requesting a meeting of the general membership. This request is to update the membership on the current sale of the building and the general status of the Home. This meeting will take place on November 4th after the regular scheduled council meeting.


A brief building update, we have another potential contract that is in the works. This contract price is lower than the $760,000 that was previously offered.  I encourage all our 3rd Degree Brother Knights to come and attend this important meeting. This is your best opportunity to ask questions and get a full update on the home and the pending building sale.     

I would like to thank Tom Romano and his committee on running a successful Day at the Races this event went very well! A thank you to our Columbus Day Dinner & Dance chairman Dominick Germano and Eddy Intemann  and their wives for running a great event. We had about 160 people in attendance, this is a great turn out to honor our Brother Knight Joe Minore. I want also thank Andy Martorano and his staff for running a successful Blood Drive, we collected 40 pints of blood.

This month we have our Annual Memorial Mass. I am asking that all our Brother Knights to join us that evening to remember our departed Brother Knights, please see the Tidings for more information. Starting this month we will be having our repast before the meeting, the repast will start at 7pm and meeting will start at 8pm. This is a trial run and we see how well it takes off, this is for our regular scheduled business meetings.

With our C&B program in full swing we have been doing very well. Our last count - over 200 books are sold. This is outstanding progress over the last a several months. We are very close to reach our C&B quota. If any Brother Knight still has a C&B book sitting at home, please turn it in to any officer as soon as possible. Let us make the last big push to make our councils quota!!! 

It is with sadness that I inform you of the passing of Mr. Gordon A. Werner; Mr. Werner was a close family friend. He was also a friend and generous supporter of our Council and the Lindenhurst Community.  Please keep his wife Bernadette and his family in your prayers.

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


Fraternally Yours

Philip A. Renna
