Grand Knight Message

Grand Knight


Dear Brothers:

We had many successful events in the hall since our last newsletter was printed and many brother Knights, their families and the Ladies Auxiliary of George Brent need to be thanked for their hard work and dedication. A hearty “thank you” to Our Worthy Chancellor / Membership Director, Tom Masarick and the Membership Team for a successful Recruitment Drive and Open House. Also, “thank you” to our Worthy Warden Billy Bolton, his wife Judy and all of his helpers for a successful Labor Day Picnic. PGK Milt Shomo Chaired the PGK Dinner. Due to necessary back surgery for Milt, PGK Tom Bowmaster had to fill in as the Master of Ceremonies Many thanks to Milt, Bo and the many helpers needed to make the event a huge success honoring PGK Carlos Sousa and his wife Tuxa.

Congratulations to Grand Knight, Greg Murray and the new Father Jon O’Brien Council in Haymarket.

Last Year the Anchor Club Implemented a plan, requiring any item borrowed from the Knights hall to be signed out before removal from the hall. The plan is needed to save time and quickly locate items borrowed from the hall. We will enforce this program again this year. All property of the Anchor Club leaving the hall must be signed out. This includes but is not limited to kitchen utensils, pots, pans, chairs, tables, projector, screen, lighting devices, flags etc. The checkout sheet is located in the kitchen on a clipboard across from the entrance. Approval must be granted by the current Grand Knight and must be checked back in when the items are return. Anyone not following the plan will lose their hall privileges.

Well, we kicked off the fraternal year with a party…literally. July 1st was our annual Independence Day picnic at Urbanna Swim Club and it was a bash, a boiler and a boom. The bash was the great cooking by our immediate Past Grand Knight Carlos Sousa and Grand Knight John Masarick, a team effort in setting it all up and a very nice turn out of friends with delicious side dishes, all making the day really special The boiler was the heat..and the boom was the “thunder-boomer” that came through toward the end. A lot of water but it didn’t put a damper on the day at all!!! Thanks to everyone who helped and who turned out!!

Remember that the Month of August is dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. On August 15 we celebrate The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary which is a Holy Day of Obligation. We celebrate the Feast of St. Alphonsus Liguori (August 1), the Feast of St. Dominic (August 8), the Feast of St. Lawrence the Martyr (August 10), the Feast of St. Clare (August 11), the Feast of St. Maximilian Kolbe (August 14), the Feast of St. Bartholomew the Apostle (August 24), the Feast of St. Augustine (August 28), and Memorials to St. Rose of Lima (August 23) and St. Louis (August 25), among many others.

The next "6 Point Meeting" will be at 7:30 on Tuesday, August 22 in the Club Room. Anyone chairing an event in August, September or October is encouraged to attend this meeting. We can help by getting volunteers, advertising the event, and answering any questions or concerns of the event chairman.

At Christmas we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. At times, our Savior is forgotten in the commercialization of the season and the rush to get ready for holiday festivities.

Each year the Knights of Columbus takes a leading role in reminding society that Christmas is first and foremost a Holy Day. One of the best ways to do this is participating in the Order’s “Keep Christ In Christmas” campaign. The Keep Christ In Christmas Religious Christmas card campaign will start in October. We have cards on hand and card orders will be fill in about 1 week’s time. In addition, cards and order forms will be in the church office.

We will be displaying KCIC cards at the end of all Masses the weekends of November 3-4 and November 18-19.

Any questions please contact William Bolton @ 571-217-6285 or
