District Deputy Report January 2015


The new year has been an exciting one for me so far. I attended the State/DD Meeting this month (Jan) for 5 Days in Ontario. Had a wonderful time, learning more and more about what we all are here for. The main topics were membership, membership and more membership. I would like to say thank you all for helping out bringing in more new brothers into our order and our council. As of today we are 67% membership & 75% in insurance. I know we can do it again by the end of the year. 100% in all three categories.  

We have 761 Councils, 16 Chapter & 145 Districts in California. I was award from our WSD Abe that District 79 was #6 in the state with 85.5%. Thank you all. I would like to be in the top 3 by the end of the Columbian year. My goal is to be one of the Star Districts in the State. Brothers I need your help to accomplish this award. Are you all behind me? I know I can count on you, all. Let’s start asking and helping MD PGK Mike Hickey.

Also brothers when you chair and event you must fill in a program “State Council Service Program Awards” form STSP. This goes towards our council in the awards at the State Convention in May. You can get them from our FS Scott Borg. When completed turn it into both the GK & FS.

Ultrasound program: excited news, we have to approximately $21K allocated in our district. The cost of the unit will be $25K. Yes brothers, the Simi Valley Community Pregnancy Clinic are overjoyed about this. We should be too.

Basketball free throw thank you PGK Andy great job we had 35 boys and 1 girl tryouts. Great job. Remember those that helped out thank you so much. Also 2-7-15 will be the District Level @ 1:00 pm – we need your help. All councils in our district will be here trying to advance to the next level, “Chapter Level”. That date is TBD.

We will be having a 1st & 2nd degree this Saturday morning 1-31-15 at St Paschal’s in Thousand Oaks starting at 10:00 (1st) Deg & 11:30am (2nd) Deg. Come out and support this – we hopefully are going to have a big crowd.

In closing I ask each one of you brothers I’m still looking for a replacement next year as I step forward in my ranks as Los Padres Chapter President. Please anyone who is a 3rd degree and/or PGK can apply.
Thank You.
Mike Ohler DD/M-79/78
