Hi Brothers,

I sure did enjoy this last month’s living!!! I went to the Summer Leadership Meeting and got a chance to hear all about becoming a Financial Secretary. It seems like a job that takes  a lot of commitment and most guys who do that job seem to do it for a long time- that may be just right for me.

I also went to the 137th Supreme Convention. We had a great cadre of guys from Washington and I had quite a bit to do in the whole thing. I was on the Distribution Committee,  which meant I got to pass out a bunch of handouts and wake up early every day to do it. |Valerie and I also got to take up the gifts during the Memorial Mass and that was a great honor. I also was able to receive an Award for Washington for the two New Councils that were formed last year. 


Every State Deputy really wants to make the Circle of Honor Award also, because it means so much to The Supreme Council in terms of how they view us as a Jurisdiction and as a State Council. This is their main measuring stick to gauge our success- How well we grew the Order. Interestingly, only six states out of fifty received the Circle of Honor. Sure would be nice if we made it this year. It would be a great honor for all of us, so keep on recruiting,

One of the guys who went to the Supreme Convention this year was Past State Deputy Rob Roberts and his wife Mira. He was the guy who bought the Seattle Seahawks jacket and he is well pleased with it. He is also into Indian Jewelry and he found a piece that he gave to me that was a beaded Green Bay Packer necklace. I guess that makes me a "Packer Brave!" GO PACKERS GO!!!!

I will keep reminding you that I am the guy who sends out GET WELL CARDS and CONDOLENCE CARDS. When you report an illness to the State Secretary, Kim Washburn, just remember to include the name and an address and I will send out a get well  card. When you report a death, make sure that  you include the name and address of the next of kin and I will send out a condolence card. As a matter of courtesy to those that are grieving, it is very important to let the State Secretary know as soon as possible. That way I can send out the card in a timely manner. Nothing is worse than a LATE SYMPATHY CARD.  It's hard enough to live through the passing of a loved one once, without having to be reminded of it a month later. If I feel it's been too long (later than three weeks) I won't send the card.

God Bless You All and Have a Great Month!
