The Knight Shield - June 2023

    June has arrived and summer is right around the corner.  School will be ending soon and graduations and wedding season is here.

    We had our second round of nominations and elections at our May meeting. Below are your officers for the 2023-fraternal year. A huge thank you to the outgoing and incoming officers for the gift of their time and talent to lead this great council



    Kurt Buhlinger and I are preparing to represent the council at the state convention on Mackinac Island this week. I will report out on the state of the order at our next meeting.  Speaking of our next meeting on June 8th, it is our pot luck and awards night. We will share in a meal. Then there will be an abbreviated meeting just to take care of business.  We will then begin the awards portion. I will be sending out a sign up like last year for the pot luck so keep an eye out for it. If you cannot do the online sign up please do not hesitate to call or email me and I will put you down. Also if you are unable to bring a dish, you are still welcome to come, just let me know so we have a count for the chicken.  

    As my time as Grand Knight is coming to a close, I have had many people approach me with kind words. I do appreciate them; however, I want you all to know it has been my honor and privilege to serve you and this council as part of the leadership team. There is no way one person could do the work required to make this council what it is.  I will speak more on this at the pot luck dinner but for those unable to attend I wanted you all to hear it. This council has become a family to me. I truly believe that is why we call each other Brother Knights. During my three years I had some rough times, and the men and women of this council stepped up and carried on when I couldnt.  Between our son passing, getting Covid (a few times), surgeries, etc. From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you all for the love and support my family has received.

God bless you and all that you do!

Vivat Jesus!
