Dear Brothers,
First, let me thank those that worked hard at the barbecue August 14th: John Rago, John Jordan, new member John Pius, and Richie Parez. They did the work of ten men! Brothers, when I ask for volunteers, please offer to help. Our mission as the Knights of Columbus is charity- not only money, but your time, as well. We have supported OLPH Parish for well over 100 years, and I want us to continue that tradition with the same zeal as in previous years. More opportunities to serve our neighbors are coming. Faith in Action programs give our organization strength and visibility. Visit our Facebook page and website to see some of the things we've been up to.
Our annual fishing trip, under Jim Barthelmes, was enjoyed by the folks who attended. As evening approached, STINGRAYS were hooked!
Now that summer is fading, we return to business attire for the officers. September 3rd is the date for our Installation of Officers. This will be a social evening. Light refreshments will be served after the ceremony. All are welcome.
The Golf Outing is coming up fast- Monday, September 16th. Contact Bob Dobres or Mike Hearney to participate. John Jordan is chairing the annual Columbus Day Dance. Ladies Auxiliary President, Stella Barbera, will be the honoree. Please support this event, scheduled for Saturday, October 19th. C&B continues under the leadership of Tom Romano. Offer to help him sell tickets, from which the proceeds are used to support charitable activities throughout New York State.
I wish to announce that our Council, through our participation in so many Faith in Action programs, has achieved the Columbian Award. Congratulations to you, my Brothers, for your dedication to serving our Parish and community. Let us continue grow in charity.
I am happy to have presented Carmelo (aka Carl) Zoccali with the Knight of the Quarter Award. Carl does a lot for the Council and is an usher at the noon Mass at OLPH. I also presented Bob Dobres with a Lifetime of Service Award (affectionately called Knight of the Century). Everybody knows how dedicated Bob is to the Knights of Columbus, on many levels, and to OLPH Parish. Congratulations to both outstanding Brothers!
Finally, contact our Tidings Editor or myself, to receive the Tidings by e-mail. If you do not have e-mail service, give us the e-mail address of a close family member, who can print it for you. Eventually, the mailed version of the Tidings will be discontinued. The money saved (thousands of dollars each year) will be used for other Council purposes, primarily charitable functions.
Your Brother in Christ,
Stephen M. Strigaro, Grand Knight
