Picture of State Deputy

My Dear Brothers,

In September we will begin a series of five Regional meetings around the State. These meetings are primarily for the benefit of the GKs, and Membership/Programs Chairmen of the Council. At this time, we plan to visit Spokane, Yakima, Everett, Tacoma, and Bremerton. These meetings are scheduled to last four hours or less. We will be presenting the latest in Programs and Membership information along with an FS trainer available to help any FSs or FCs that attend. Please take advantage of this opportunity to learn a bit more and spend some quality time with your brothers and the State Council Officers. A light lunch will follow at each.

Summer is almost over and congratulations to those Councils that have managed to bring in new members. Always a difficult time to recruit new folks due to vacations, etc. While some Councils claim to “take the summer off,” that usually runs afoul of their own by-laws that state they meet every month. If your Council is one of those ask yourself…does that Parish take the summer off?

Your State Council and its chairman never take the Summer off? Does your Priest take the summer off without a replacement to celebrate Mass for you and the other sacraments?

The forces that work very hard against Christianity don’t ever take time off. They are out there in full force all year long and we need to be there to support our beliefs and our Church against them.

There are a few Councils that have very successful Summer events to support their Parish and we should all be doing the same. Pease consider becoming one of them next year. Remember, no new members will create a downward spiral for your council. Don’t let that be your legacy. Be proud of what you have built and share it with new men so that future generations can benefit from your Councils charitable efforts.
