Grand Knight’s Report
Worthy Brother Knights:

The New Fraternal Year began July 1st and we are off and running!

PGK Hugh Gardiner and Team hosted a very successful family breakfast and BK Ed Dantzer, PGK Steve Brischer and Team hosted a very successful Thanksgiving in July dinner. Thank you!!

The proceeds of the breakfast help the Christ Renew Our Parish Ministry and the dinner proceeds help begin the Neumann Center remodel.

Thank you BK Frank, PGK Dominick and Team for the delicious Installation meals for the Council and the Assembly. The new and returning officers were sworn in by Michael Basak, District Deputy for Council 7923 and Brad Burnett, State Master for the Assembly. Father Sunny Blessed the Jewels for both installations.

We also welcome a New Knight, BK Charlie Brantley, who was accompanied by BK Mark Dallas, our Membership Director, to St. Marguerite d'Youville for his First Degree.
We were honored to participate in the Knight's mass with newly ordained, Father Luis as celebrant and Father Sunny assisting. Our council's year in review video played after all masses. Thank you Ken Fehner for composing the video and making the arrangements.

Thank you Mark Dallas for getting the Knights pamphlets that were handed out to men interested in joining our council after the masses.

We also like to congratulate BK Anthony Joseph Madore (Tony) and his wife, Stephanie, their sons, Lorenzo and Isaac for the New addition to the family as Emmanuel Albert was born July 27th. See their Family picture in Knights in Action highlights section.

Mother Theresa at the Visitation Monastery has asked the Knights help spruce up the grounds in preparation of the Bishop's visit in August. We plan to help the nuns Tuesday morning, at 10 am July 31st. Thank you Brother Knights that are able to help!

See you all at the next Business Meeting in August! Check the calendar for details and pray you can participate in our activities.

Vivat Jesus,
Mark Davis
