Grand Knight Message

Grand Knight

My Brother Knights,

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and was able to enjoy some special time with family and friends. It’s hard to believe that the Fraternal Year is half over. Time really does fly when you’re having fun! I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the fabulous support you’ve shown me as Grand Knight. This Council would not be nearly as successful as it is without the tremendous support of the entire George Brent family, and for that I’m truly grateful. I believe that the next six months of the Fraternal Year will be even more successful than the first six months.

It’s well known that New Year’s resolutions don’t have a high success rate. If you are one of those folks that likes to make New Year’s Resolutions I would like to offer the following suggestions. These should be really easy to keep.

  • Attend at least one Council meeting a month
  • Volunteer one day a month helping out at Bingo
  • Help with planning and running an event
  • Recruit one new member

I hope everyone had a chance to see the beautiful new crèche. Thanks to Enrique Nieto for this great addition to our Council and the community. I received many wonderful comments on how nice it looked.

By now everyone should have received their dues bill in the mail. Please make an effort to send your payments to the Financial Secretary as soon as possible. Everyone will need to have a valid membership card by the first meeting in February.

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!

Vivat Jesus,

Milt Shomo
Grand Knight

DGK Message


As the council enters the New Year, we as Brother Knights and our family’s make our annual resolutions. The word Resolution is the noun form of the verb resolve, which comes from Latin resolvere, "to loosen, undo, settle.". On January 10th we will need as much help as possible in removing the Christmas decorations that are hanging in the Hall. If you have left a favorite Christmas Ornament on the Christmas tree in the hall, please stop by the hall on Saturday December 10th at 11:00am to pick it back up.

On January 22nd, 2015 will be the annual March for Life. This event started back in 1973 and since then became a constant reminder of the greatest human rights violation of our time, abortion. So let’s make a pledge to pray an extra rosary for those expecting mothers that they will hear Gods voice to choose life.

I want to end this message by wishing that all of George Brent Council will have a wonderful, safe and prosperous new year from the Henslee family.
