Grand Knight Message

Grand Knight

My Brother Knights,

We all know that the First Principle of our Order is Charity and as true Knights we must look for opportunities to assist those who are less well off than ourselves. By far, the largest charitable program that we support is the annual KOVAR drive. For the last few years George Brent has lead the State in funds raised for this worthy charity and last year was no exception. Our Council raised nearly $23,000 outpacing the next closest Council by $4,000. This remarkable showing is due to the amazing support and dedication of our members and as Grand Knight I want to offer my thanks to each of you that supported the KOVAR drive last year.

This year our goal is $23,000 (the largest goal in the State). Given our historical performance in supporting KOVAR I know we can reach this goal. Once again this year we will be donating all proceeds from the monthly Family Breakfasts to KOVAR. Please bring your family, friends and neighbors on Sunday September 14th to enjoy a delicious breakfast and help support KOVAR. Our Worthy Recorder Tom Mehr is leading our Council’s KOVAR drive this year so, when he asks for help filling slots to pass out Tootsie Rolls or otherwise help with the drive please be generous with your time.

Remember that all of the other great charitable 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!" I’ve notice however, that the number of Brother Knights on some teams is dwindling and could use more support. If you have not yet had the opportunity to help out with the Bingo Program please consider volunteering 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.

Vivat Jesus,

Milt Shomo
Grand Knight

DGK Message


The Council will be hosting many exciting events during September. I want to take this opportunity to Thank Colin Myers for chairing a successful Blood Drive. I also would like to encourage those Brother Knights who are interested in helping out with either setting up for an event or assist in other ways to please see me or our Grand Knight for further details.

On the night of September 13th, George Brent Council will be hosting our annual PGK Dinner in Honor of PGK Bill Gaynord. Then on September 14th we will be hosting our first Family Breakfast of the fraternal year. I would very much like to see as many Brother Knights lend a hand in the kitchen as possible. This is a great opportunity to come and enjoy the comradery that is shared with your Brother Knights in the kitchen.
