Grand Knight Message

Grand Knight

My Brother Knights,

Let me start by saying how honored and humbled I am that you have chosen me to lead our Council for the 2014-2015 Fraternal Year. When I took my 1st Degree eight years ago I had no idea I would one day be elected Grand Knight. I pray that I can live up to the great tradition set by the many fine Grand Knights our Council has enjoyed over the years. Any success I have this year as your Grand Knight will simply be a reflection of the great Officers and members of George Brent Council.

I would like to congratulate my fellow Officers and look forward to working together to make this a fun and rewarding year. I also look forward to working with the Ladies Auxiliary. The many excellent events we have each year would not be possible without the contribution of these fine Ladies. I also wish to extend my thanks to those Brother Knights that have stepped up and agreed to take positions as Program Directors.

My theme is year is Faith & Family. As husbands, fathers, brothers, uncles and sons it is our responsibility to strengthen the bonds within our families and help to build our faith. I plan to hold three Corporate Communions this year where we can come together in faith and worship together as families and Brother Knights. I’m also planning several family related events such as Family Pasta or Pizza Nights, ice skating party and maybe a night out at the ball park. As always, we will be continuing our great tradition of Family Breakfast.

All of the great work our Council does throughout the year is due in large part to the success of our Bingo Program. To all those who so graciously donate their time to this program I offer you a huge “THANK YOU!” If you have not yet had the opportunity to help out with the Bingo Program why not volunteer a few hours one day a month? Please contact me or our Worthy Chancellor if you would like more information on how you can get involved.

Once again, thank you for electing me your Grand Knight and I look forward to a rewarding year. Please feel free to contact me or any of the Officers if you have any questions or concerns.

Vivat Jesus,

Milt Shomo
Grand Knight

My Brothers,
As I write my first article as Deputy Grand Knight, I would like to thank both the nomination committee and to the members of George Brent Council in your faith and assurance in electing me as your Deputy Grand Knight. I also would like to thank PGK Bill Gaynord and his wife Linda for everything that they have contributed to our Council and to all of the Gaynord family for setting an example to what family and charity really means.

This month of July brings forth many events that the council will be hosting. The annual 4th of July pool party will be held at Urbana swim club and chaired by the Chancellor Carlos Sousa. We ask that you bring a dish to share with others. The Council will provide the hamburgers and other food being cooked on grill as we as sodas and beer on tap. This event is open to all brother knights who are in good standing and their families.

The Six-Point meeting of the fraternal year will be held on July 15th at 7:30pm in the clubroom. I am requesting all committees such as the community chairman, family chairman, church chairman, youth chairman, retention chairman, culture of life chairman, and a member of the ladies auxiliary to attend all Six-Point meetings during the fraternal year 2014-2015. I want to ensure that all events that are scheduled for the fraternal year will have the greatest success as possible.

On July 19th we will be having our first annual Family Pasta Dinner. This event is open to everyone after the 5:30pm Saturday mass. This event is being chaired by Brother Enrique and his family. He has asked for volunteers to bartend for this event. This is also a great opportunity to bring in catholic gentleman who is considering being a Brother Knight.
