Grand Knight Report – July 2015

DGK Cris KalalThank you for electing me Grand Knight this Columbian year. With your help, this will be a very rewarding and successful year. Thank you to all of our council officers for accepting their positions this year.

Our Family Picnic on June 28 was a huge success. A lot of fun was had by all. Thank you to the Brothers that helped with food preparation the day before and cooking the day of, set up and clean up and games coordination. Special thanks to DGK Augie Godinez, PGK Kenny Rodriguez and Leonard Cruz, Jr for all their BBQ skills. We had plenty of BBQ chicken, hot dogs, corn on the cob and side dishes.
Congratulations to our newest Knight, Ryan Kalal, who received the 1st Degree of our Order on July 22 and his 2nd Degree on July 29. Be sure to introduce yourself and welcome him into our council.

The Family Unity Mass was well attended this past Sunday. Thanks to all that showed their pride in our council by wearing your council shirt and name badge. Thanks to those that served during the mass and thank you to George Colon for the coffee and donuts on the patio.
We also had a Blood Drive on Sunday that was a great success. There were 48 pints of blood donated, some by our brother knights. Many lives will be saved or made better because of the blood drive.

Our Golf Tournament is approaching fast. If you are a golfer, get your registration and fees in soon. If you are not a golfer, please join us for the Wine Social and Dinner. Also, get your sold Super Drawing tickets in as soon as possible. We are still looking for raffle prizes.
