Grand Knight’s Report
Worthy Brother Knights,

We look forward to our 2nd on-line-order, BBQ Pulled Pork Dinner, that will take place on Saturday November 7th. I’ll have final numbers for the dinner in the December newsletter.  

Our meetings continue to go well, with masks being worn, and everyone socially distanced. I also started having our monthly Officers Meeting, held on the first Monday of the month. We held one in October, and will have one in November as well. All Knights, not just the Officers are welcome to attend.
We gained two new Knight’s in October. Christian Hartnett and Tom Giovinazzo, both went through the on-line Exemplification and are now 3rd Degree Knights! When you see them, please congratulate them. We must continue recruiting by letting men out there know who the Knights are, and what we do.  

We’re still dealing with having COVID in our lives. I continue to pray for the health and safety of you my Brother Knights and your families.

Vivat Jesus,

Mark Dallas

Program Director Highlights
There are many opportunities for service at the Sisters of the Visitation convent in Snellville with numerous facility and groundskeeping projects needing help. The DGK will put together a list and description of the projects and provide that along with a point of contact for the convent so that Knights can select projects and find out when they can come to offer service. We have done service work there in the past, and with 27 acres and large building there is virtually a continuous list of projects needing attention.
