Grand Knight

Steven Strigaro

Worthy Brother Knights, January was a relatively quiet month for us, but February and March will be busy. Before I go any further, let me thank some committee chairs for their recent work: Bob and Carolyn Dobres, for the Members’ Christmas party; Joe Ryzak for the Exceptional Children’s Christmas party; Andy Martorano, for the Blood Drive; John Reynolds and Rob Saracino, for the Free Throw Contest; and Mike Hearney and Bob Newberry for the “Keep Christ in Christmas” poster contest and awards ceremony. In February, the Islanders hockey game is sold out. We will host a 1st (Admission) Degree on Tuesday, the 5th. Our Squires Circle will hold their annual Sweethearts Dance on the 8th. Tim Gill will hold another Food Drive, outside King Kullen, Sunday, the 10th. The Councils of the 11th District are planning two events in March. On Sunday, the 10th, a men’s retreat will be held at Saint Martin’s parish, in Amityville. This retreat will be open to ALL MEN, not just members of the Knights. Contact me for details. Friday night, March 15th, will be a fundraiser dinner-dance to benefit the Wheelchair Mission. See me or Charlie Shami for tickets and info. I ask everyone to participate in the “Faith in Action” programs planned by our Council, and maybe come up with other suggestions. Visit, go to PROGRAMS, then FAITH IN ACTION. Another thing you can do to help us keep track of volunteer hours and donations, fill out a FORM 1728A. If you currently get the Tidings by e-mail, one is attached. IF YOU DO NOT receive the Tidings by e-mail, PLEASE give us an e-mail address that we can use. This will save us money, which can be used to provide more charitable contributions. Please remember to pray for our sick and deceased brothers, especially those listed inside. Fraternally yours, Stephen M. Strigaro, Grand Knight HOME: 631 225 0928 CELL: 631 747 4929
