Dear Brothers and Sisters in Columbianism,

 

            Let me first thank Gayle Shami, Tom Romano, Joe Ryzak, Bob Dobres, Vinny Ayers and their committees for putting together a great set of Christmas Parties. I thank everyone that attended and helped with each of these events. Let me take this time to wish all of you a Happy New Year.

 

            In last month’s message I stated that 400 South Broadway has been our home for last 60 years, unfortunately it’s time to move on. Now, I know it will be hard for us and the Lindenhurst community to move on; we all have our memories of events that were both happy and sad. It is hard for me as well. For me it is so much more than a building, it is where my mom grew up, where she met my father and they were married. Where my Grandfather was Grand Knight, and where I grew up, was Chief Squire, I took my 1st and 3rd Degrees, and where I became your Grand Knight. Each of us has our greatest and fondest memories of this building. Hold on to those memories and the people that helped make our Council what it is today. We take those memories with us and they will help us to move forward! Yes, it will be hard to move forward but with the help of our brothers, sisters and GOD, we can overcome this!

 

Remember, it is not a building that makes O.L.P.H. Council #794 it is our members!

 

Over the course of the last few months we have been speaking with our Pastor and Chaplin Msgr. Joe, to acquire potential meeting and storage space for us. I can now finally say that an arrangement has been negotiated!  We will be using the O.L.P.H. Convent Meeting Room 1 for meetings starting January 6, 2015 for all Council, Ladies Auxiliary, Squires and Retire Knight meetings and Meeting Room 2 for storage. In this arrangement we are hosting Thursday Evening BINGO in the O.L.P.H. School Auditorium starting January 8, 2015.

 

January 1st we begin to rebuild our home, our family and most of all our Council! In order to do this we need to be unified together as ONE!  We must look to the future, we must move forward! We will need the support of our entire membership!

 

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

 

Fraternally Yours

 

Philip A. Renna
