Dear Brothers and Sisters,
As I become Grand Knight of our Council, allow me to state my goal:
to Lead and to Serve.
I hope to lead the Council, as well as
serve the needs of our members and parish community. I want to thank our members for putting your faith in me, by electing
me Grand Knight. Along with our newly elected officers, I believe my goal is within reach.
a lot of events coming up within the next few months. June 30th we will need help
for the “Passport to the Parish”, manning the barbecue. In July, at our first meeting, we will celebrate
Independence Day by wearing patriotic colors. Our second meeting will be Hawaiian shirt night. July 29th
is a Fifth Sunday Mass at 8am. Please, let us attend as a group.
August includes the Giant Yard Sale, on
the 18th. See Alex Keller to offer your assistance. Our annual LI Ducks baseball game
will be the 24th. The OLPH Choir will sing the National Anthem. We also will host another barbecue,
on the 13th, prior to the children’s play at the OLPH School.
September will also be busy. The
Golf Outing and Installation of officers are coming, and perhaps, a membership drive.
A Council Facebook
page is coming. An announcement will be made when it is ready to launch.
One additional item: if you are
receiving the Tidings by mail, please give us an e-mail address. We need to greatly reduce
expenses related to printing and mailing the Tidings. The savings will allow us to support more charitable activities.
I thank everyone for the prayers, telephone calls and visits during my recovery
from my leg injury.
GOD Bless America. God Bless
our Council. God Bless Us All.
Stephen M Strigaro, Grand Knight
