January 2013 Grand Knight’s Message

My Brother Knights,

On Saturday Dec 15th   we celebrated our annual “Children’s Christmas Party” in the Fellowship Hall; it was a wonderful experience sharing this time with children. I want to thank all of the brothers that helped make this event an extra special day and a big thank you to our Chancellor Allen S Gordon for playing Santa and Daniel Kaplan for playing Santa’s helper. The kids and parents really loved it.

On January 12th & 13th after each mass in the Narthex, we will be conducting our second Membership Blitz of the Columbian year. We will also be recruiting for our newly formed LADIES AUXILIARY, KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS GOOD SHEPHERD COUNCIL #8607.   If you can assist with the blitz, please contact the Deputy Grand Knight Nick Hernandez.

On Friday March 22nd, we will be holding our council’s annual Chinese auction. We are seeking donations of new unused items for the auction. We are also asking for donations of wine and/or sprits for gift baskets that will be raffled at the Chinese auction. The Chinese auction is our main fund raiser for the Columbian year, please donate whatever you can. Please contact myself or Fred Luebke PGK to arrange collection of your donations.

On behalf of myself and the officers of our council, I would like to wish you a joyous Christmas with your friends and family and a happy and healthy New Year.

Remember, Keep Christ in Christmas and all through the coming year.


Allen D. Gordon, Grand Knight
