Summer is coming to a close, and we about to embark on two September experiments:
the return to school, for our children and school personnel; and our return to in-person meetings, at the American Legion
Hall. They come with similar restrictions: mandatory wearing of masks and social distancing. Neither experiment is guaranteed
We will work out a system to live-stream Council meetings via ZOOM, for those who are unable to join us in person. (Meeting

We lost one of our longest-tenured members in August: Steve Damm, a well-known and well-respected member of Lindenhurst
and OLPH Church. His contributions to our community and parish cannot be over-stated.
Our first boat cruise, around Great South Bay, was a pleasant evening. I would like to see more folks join us when we
do it again next summer. Thank you to Chairman Kevin Sabella, and the captain and crew of the Captain Eddie B III.
We are making progress with the Leave No Neighbor Behind program. Chairman Alex Keller needs many more volunteers to fulfill
the vision of this program. There are many aspects which you can serve your Brother Knights and our needy neighbors.
Our Installation of Officers is scheduled for Saturday evening, September 19th, following the 5pm Mass, at OLPH Church.
DD Paul DiOrio will preside. Because of the current circumstances, there will be NO reception after the Installation.
We hope and pray that our lives return to normal soon. We plan to restore the good works we perform for our Parish and
Village. The question remains: WHEN?
Continue to pray- for ourselves; our loved ones; those who serve, protect, and heal us.
Stephen M. Strigaro, Grand Knight
