January 2014 Grand Knight’s Message

Once again it is that time of year, time to collect dues.  This year we need more then just your thirty two dollars for dues, we need your help and participation. 

You may have noticed that you have not been receiving the herald for the last couple of months.  This is because our Financial Secretary has been ill and unable to put it together.  We are working on getting the herald out again but in the meantime we will be continuing to use our website (http://www.goodshepherdkofc.org) our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/GoodShepherd8607) and occasionally or phone calling system when we need to notify our members of important information. 

Overall this has been a rough year on the council, with our Financial Secretary becoming ill we have lost three of our very active members including the two most important positions in a council, Grand Knight and Financial Secretary. 

I am very concerned about the future of our council, unless we start getting additional active members.  I am not sure how long this council will be able to continue resting on the shoulders of only a few of our members.

I am asking that every member please consider coming to our meetings and joining us at our events.  In January we are planning a big membership drive which we plan to follow up with a large social on Feb 7th for our members and people who are considering joining our council and their families.
