FAITH, FAMILY AND BROTHERHOOD
I'm greatly humbled and honored. I would like to offer my sincerest gratitude to GEORGE BRENT COUNCIL#5332 for the support and brotherhood through the years. I didn't make my journey alone, numerous people have supported me along the way, and for that I thank you!
I've been blessed with an amazing and supportive family, a wife of 26 years, 2 beautiful daughters and a son-in-law. Through my family I became a religious man and that is what has led me here.
I'm looking forward to a great year. To my officers, let us strive for union and brotherhood, to work as one throughout this Fraternal Year to achieve this Council's goals. To the wonderful Ladies Auxiliary, these ladies are what make our world look easy, they work behind the scenes making every event special and in the end they let us take all the credit. Thank you for your continued support.
This year we will focus on FAMILY with various events such as Dinner and a Movie and our traditional Family Breakfast.
FAITH, with a weekly rosary prayed every Tuesday in the club room at 7:00 pm (chapel is not available).
BROTHERHOOD with Knights at the Ballpark and let's not forget BINGO which is our main fundraiser for all our CHARITIES. I ask you to come and support our bingo program, without your help it is impossible to continue our work toward to our goal.
If you have any comments or concerns please contact myself or any officer. God Bless you all!
I would like to thank all of those that voted for me or encouraged me to become an Officer in the George Brent Council Knights of Columbus and those that have advised me of the duties of an Officer. I will do my best to live up to, and exceed, your expectations of Deputy Grand Knight. Becoming an Officer in the Council has been very spiritually and socially rewarding to me.
We are truly blessed at George Brent to have so many good men and women in the Council that help whenever needed. Regardless of the task, if we are working Bingo, setting up the hall, cooking food, organizing the entertainment, serving refreshments from the bar, serving food or resetting the hall, everyone pitches in. It has been a privilege to work with all the wonderful Knights and the women of the Ladies Auxiliary. I also must thank my wife Sue and my family for their support and encouragement without them I could not be a Knight.
I am very excited about the upcoming year and believe it will be a wonderful year for the George Brent Council. Our Grand Knight, Carlos Sousa, has created a very impressive calendar for us this year. We will begin the calendar of events on Saturday, July 9thÂ with the "Fourth of July at Urbana Swim Club" chaired by our Recorder, Billy Bolton. The “Installation of Officers” will be on Saturday, July 23rd this year. Watch your e-mail for more information.
