I would like to thank the
membership for attending the special meeting last month to discuss the future
of our Council. We had a packed house and there was a great exchange of ideas
and concerns for our future. As you know
we are in the process of selling our building. During the meeting which focused
only on the Council, many questions were raised that could only be answered by
the Home Association in regards to the building. In response to the many
questions being asked the membership formally petitioned the Home Association,
requesting a meeting of the general membership. This request is to update the
membership on the current sale of the building and the general status of the
Home. This meeting will take place on November
4th after the regular scheduled council meeting.
A brief building update, we have another
potential contract that is in the works. This contract price is lower than the
$760,000 that was previously offered. I
encourage all our 3rd Degree
Brother Knights to come and attend this important meeting. This is your
best opportunity to ask questions and get a full update on the home and the
pending building sale.
I would like to thank Tom Romano
and his committee on running a successful Day at the Races this event went very
well! A thank you to our Columbus Day Dinner & Dance chairman Dominick
Germano and Eddy Intemann and their
wives for running a great event. We had about 160 people in attendance, this is
a great turn out to honor our Brother Knight Joe Minore. I want also thank Andy
Martorano and his staff for running a successful Blood Drive, we collected 40
pints of blood.
month we have our Annual Memorial Mass. I am asking that all our Brother
Knights to join us that evening to remember our departed Brother Knights,
please see the Tidings for more information. Starting this month we will be
having our repast before the meeting, the repast will start at 7pm and meeting
will start at 8pm. This is a trial run and we see how well it takes off, this
is for our regular scheduled business meetings.
our C&B program in full swing we have been doing very well. Our last count
- over 200 books are sold. This is outstanding progress over the last a several
months. We are very close to reach our C&B quota. If any Brother Knight
still has a C&B book sitting at home, please turn it in to any officer as
soon as possible. Let us make the last big push to make our councils
with sadness that I inform you of the passing of Mr. Gordon A. Werner; Mr.
Werner was a close family friend. He was also a friend and generous supporter
of our Council and the Lindenhurst Community.
Please keep his wife Bernadette and his family in your prayers.
I thank you for your support and let us in Charity, Unity, and Fraternity
move to a brighter future!
