Grand Knight Report – April 2015

GK_Dan_ThompsonDear Brother Knights,

First I want to Thank Deputy Grand Knight for running the last Business Meeting. I am told he did a fantastic job. I would also like to thank all of you who attend the meetings. Your input is greatly appreciated. Your ideas and input help to make this the great council that it is.

At our last meeting we had discussion regarding providing tuition support for our own seminarian Antonio Diaz. We will vote on this at our next meeting. It is great that our council continuously supports our seminarian. Next we voted on a donation for Relay for Life. This discussion and vote resulted in a donation. Thanks all who voted to support this worthy event. We also had a discussion and vote on the Life Centers of Ventura. Thanks to Mike Mars for your presentation.

The State Knight’s convention is coming up this month. Brother Cris Kalal and Brother Mike Mars will attend. Our council put in for awards in six categories and in these categories we sponsored or supported over 30 local events. Thanks to all who turn out to support all these council events.

We also met our goal for our membership drive this with thirteen new members. We also achieved our goal for new insurance members. This means we qualify for the Star Council Award. It will be our third in a row. During April we had a Second Degree ceremony and several members advanced to their second degree. Thanks to our membership director Mike Hickey.

It is almost time for our Officer Elections. If you would like to become an Officer Please let myself or any of the Trustees know.
Brother Mike Mars father Stanley Mars passed away this month. Stan was a member of our council, a 4th degree, and life member. Please keep the Mars family in your prayers.

Vivat Jesus,
Dan Thompson
