The Knight's Shield - May 2021

Spring is here! I for one am glad to have the warmer weather and to see nature waking up from winter.

I hope this finds you and your families happy and healthy.

We had our first round of nominations for officer elections at last month’s meeting. The nominations are posted later in this newsletter. If you will not be attending the next meeting, I will be glad to accept nominations via email or phone call. There will be one more round of nominations...then elections will be held at the next meeting. Also, please remember that it is acceptable and encouraged to self-nominate if you would like to be involved in helping to run your council.

There is an online seminar by Tom Henga about retirement called "Paychecks and Playchecks" coming up. He is an author and very good presenter. I really enjoyed his last one. The flyer is attached to this newsletter. Please consider attending this as the council will get credit toward the Star Award if we get enough participation. Please let me know if you are going to attend so I can follow up and ensure that we get the credit that is due us. See the attached flyer for more information.

The road cleanup is coming up 4/24. We will meet in the North parking lot at 8am.

I just received word that the convention at Mackinaw is cancelled and will be virtual again this year.

This month. we recognize Memorial Day, (note I intentionally say recognize instead of celebrate). This is the holiday where we remember those who gave their lives in service brate, lets just make sure that we do remember and give thanks to God for the soldiers who made the greatest sacrifice for our freedom. As Franklin D. Roosevelt once said, "Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy forget in time that men have died to win them."

From my family to yours, we wish you a happy spring. As things ease up with vaccines getting in arms, I hope to see each and everyone of you soon!

Vivat Jesus!
Tom Gray
