Grand Knight’s Report
Worthy Brother Knights,

It is a true honor for me to have been chosen as your Grand Knight for the 2020-2021 fraternal year. I look forward to working with all of you to make Council 7923 the best that it can be! I also want to thank Mike MacFarlane for his leadership and guidance as our Grand Knight for the past 2019-2020 year.

Let’s welcome our new officers for this year: Glenn Klein, Deputy Grand Knight, Steve Brischler, Treasurer, Charlie Brantley, Warden, and Brian Jeffers, Recorder. Also welcome back our returning officers who will serve this new year: Fr. Sunny, Chaplain, Jim McHugh, Financial Secretary, Larry Hoffman, Advocate, Harvey James, Chancellor, William Verciglio, Inside Guard, Alex Naumis, Outside Guard, Houston Feaster and David Werve, Lectures, Mike MacFarlane, Third Year Trustee, Mark Davis, Second Year Trustee, and Ralph Oshinksi, First Year Trustee.
This year, 2020, most of us have not experienced the likes of before. I hope you and your families are safe and well. We’ve not been able to host events since the beginning March as our Fish Fry’s had to shut down after three of the six that were scheduled. Currently, no breakfast or dinners will be scheduled until after Labor Day with those dates TBD.  

We will be looking at the possibility of carry out meals. This is dependent on exactly how many advance orders we would receive in order to make it worth our while. Current church attendance remains very low, which tells us many people are still very reluctant to come out in public.  

Although none are currently scheduled, we have been cleared by Fr. Sunny to resume our council meetings. We are restricted to NO MORE THAN 25 total people, who must be spread out, and masks must be worn, hands sanatized. I know that this may turn a lot of you off, but it’s where things stand currently. I will keep everyone updated as we move through these next few months, on meetings and events.

Vivat Jesus,

Mark Dallas
