I hope that you and your family had a healthy, happy and relaxing Summer. I say relaxing, because we have a number of activities scheduled that need your help throughout the year. I want to use this opportunity to personally thank the many brothers in this Council who always step up and do all the things that keep this Council great. Every event that is undertaken and executed is always done professionally and is always concluded successfully. God has blessed this Council with the cream of the crop. We have so much talent and skill in one Council that it never ceases to amaze me. There is no Grand Knight in any Council that has a better group of skilled and talented Knights. Thank you all for your talents, your time and your love of our Council.
