October 2014 Grand Knight’s Message

Once again it is time to install our council officers, and it is also the perfect time to talk about volunteering.  Every organization out there is hurting for volunteers. People just don’t seem to have the time to volunteer anymore. With our council we have a lot of people who are willing to help work an event, but it is very hard to find people who are willing to plan and run an event.

Every year it gets harder and harder to fill all of the council officer positions.  This year we found ourselves without a Deputy Grand Knight at the very last minute.  Luckily John Leonardo PGK FDD FCB stepped up to cover the position for one year.

I know I have said it many times before but it is starting to become a very serious problem, if this council is going to survive we need people to step up and become officers.  This council has a lot of great members who are willing to give a hand but what we are missing is people who are willing to take the ball and become leaders.

This month we started planning the Knight’s October 25th Halloween Party which we will be doing with the Women’s Auxiliary.  This is going to be a costume party which will be targeted towards families and should be a good time.  We are looking for people to volunteer and help with the setup and cooking.  If anyone is interested please contact me.
