Grand Knight Letter

August 2019


I hope everyone is having a great summer so far. I have always considered the month of August the half way point of summer. This is the time of the year I enjoy the most since we have long days to enjoy what life has to offer especially with Family and Friends.

August is often considered the transitional month in our seasonal calendar. It is the time of the year some of us begin to wind down from our summer vacations and to start thinking about back to school and fall festivals.

Even though this is our slow time of year at the Council it’s time to start planning our Family Picnic which will be held on Saturday September 14th. Our DGK Bob Westrich is leading the charge on organizing it. He is holding his first meeting on Friday August 2nd at 7pm before the Social meeting. Please reach out to Bob if you would like to help.

Our Catholic faith has some notable events coming up in this month of August.

On August 6th we celebrate the Feast of the Transfiguration.

On August 12th we celebrate the Birthday of Our Knights of Columbus Founder Father Michael J. McGivney.

On August 15th we celebrate the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary which is a Holy day of Obligation.

Please continue to check out our website for the Calendar of Events to know what is going on at your Council.

Also remember the Social and Business meetings are the on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month unless noted on the calendar. Please come on down for the meetings. We would like to see and hear from you!

Vivat Jesus,

Tom Raulinavich GK
