Dear Brothers:

The month of October will be a busy month for our Council.

We start with the Admission Degree on the 3rd followed by the Formation degree on the 11th and Columbus Day on the 10th.

Columbus Day originated as a celebration of Italian/American Heritage and was first celebrated in San Francisco in 1869. The first state wide celebration was held in Colorado in 1907. In 1937, Columbus Day became a holiday across the United States. Since 1971 it has been celebrated on the second Monday in October, the date on which Columbus arrived in the Americas. On this day we celebrate the discovery of the New World on October 12th 1492.

We will also celebrate the Oktoberfest on the 15th when crown Prince Ludwig, later to became King Ludwig l was married to Princess Therese of Saxony on 12th of October 1810.The citizens of Munich were invited to attend the festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates to celebrate the Royal event.

On the 22nd we will hold the Annual Kids Halloween party, a great event for our children where there will be beautiful costumes and Pumpkin Decorating at the hall. On the same day, we will be celebrating the George Brent Family, the first settlement of a Catholic family in Virginia in 1670. It is always a great event to celebrate Mass at the Brent family cemetery where they were layed to rest.

On the 29th we will be having another Halloween celebration, but this time for Adults. We are hosting a fun night at the Hall with prizes for the best costumes and I invite you to joins us.

Let's not forget to continue our efforts to recruit those who want to serve our Parish, our Church and Council.

If you have any comments or concerns please contact myself or any officer. God Bless you all!
