Dear Brothers and Sisters in
Let me first thank our installation committee Bob Rooney, Vinny Ayers, Phil Renna Sr., and John Jordan, for a job well
done. Our State Treasurer who attended, was very happy with our ceremony and
dinner. He was pleased also to see our young knights present that evening as
well. I thank all that came out and joined us this great celebration. Our State Treasurer
also invited my wife Katherine and I to be interviewed for TELECARE . We will be filming on October 2nd,
this is great positive publicity for our Council.
month we have two events, they are the Day at the Races and Columbus Day Dinner and Dance. We will be honoring Joe Minore
this year at our Annual Columbus day Dinner and Dance. Please come out and support Joe for all the hard work he has done for
our Council. Please see the Tidings for more information on this event and others.
Building Update: there is another buyer, his offer is for $760,000. At our
last board meeting the board by a vote of 11 to 2, voted to sell the building for the offer of $760,000. This price is close
to 50% less than 1.3million we were at this time last year. I have requested several times that evening for the board to bring
this back to the Home Associations membership before they sign the contract. This requested was turned down by the Board of
Directors. They feel that this price is the best price possible. I encourage any member that may have concerns
with this to please come to the next board meeting.
this contract moves forward, we will need a home. I have been in contact with our Chaplin for either temporary or permit space
at the Church. I would like to discuss this at depth, with that being said I am calling for a general membership meeting of the Council, this will take place at our first council meeting October 7th, 2014 at 8pm. We will also be discussing and voting on the 2014/2015
budget. I urge the membership to please attend this meeting.
Our council will continue to move forward and be the flagship once again. Over the last several months I have been
stressing the importance of a call to action to our membership. Our Officers have taken the steps to make us great, what we
need now is your help to move our Council forward.
you for your support and let us in Charity, Unity, and Fraternity move to a brighter
Philip A. Renna
