Happy Easter to you, Brother Knights!

I hope that, in continuity with the Church’s great tradition, you are celebrating the joy of Easter all throughout the fifty­day­long season. Too often, we allow the cheer and elation of our great feast days to fizzle after just a short time. Keep your focus on the Easter mysteries, and the joy of the Risen Lord will remain with you.

Worthy Sirs,

Already we are more than halfway through the Fraternal Year. Per Capita has been billed and is coming in as expected although a few are still outstanding. Award forms are nearly upon us and even one is due to the Chairmen. Don’t miss out on your chance for Star Council over paperwork. Remember all Award paperwork goes to our State Programs Chairmen and from them on to our State General Programs Director and State Warden, Greg Mahoney, so send them to your Chairmen quick and he will compile from there.

Just a reminder, if your Council operates on a calendar year basis, you have until May 15th to file your 990-N,  990-EZ or 990 Standard.  Both 990-N and 990-EZ can be filed electronically (takes about 15 minutes with all your information ready). You will receive an acceptance notice right away from what I understand. Read More...
