Dear Brother Knights,
Mother Nature seemed to make the Lenten season a bit more difficult for us with a prolonged cold spell this year. But signs of spring are showing and we have rejoiced and celebrated in the joy of Easter. Pat and I extend our Easter best wishes to everyone.
I continue to be encouraged by the involvement of our members in the work of Council and in the community. Thank you to everyone who has responded to the call to serve in whatever way you can. We are people of hope – may you share this hope with others.
You will notice in the coming events that there will be opportunities to come together and celebrate in the coming weeks. Boston Pizza night on Monday April 20, Council BBQ Thursday June 4, and the Walk-a-thon on Sunday June 14 are some of the events.
It is very important for our organization that we engage the new members and other members who have not seen where they can become active in Council activities. Bingo is always in need of people to be back up on short notice when something prevents a team member from attending a scheduled bingo. This is the main source of monies that we give to charity. Another area needing members to pitch-in is in the sale of Share the Wealth tickets. Revenue is down from these sales and fresh blood and new ideas are needed.
As we move into the month of May, Marion month, may the mother of Jesus be our source of inspiration to lead our Christian life.
