Hi, Brothers!

It's "show-time" for the State Officer Team this month. We are going to various locations around the State to visit with the members who come, and to train the Financial Secretaries who show up. My team and I love to do this because we get a chance to communicate with the members of our State who have year-in and year-out formed the backbone of our Order.

We love to exchange the ideas that you have to make our State better and we take your input seriously.  Sometimes we can help if there is a problem and sometimes we can't, but you can count on us to do the best we can. We are here to serve you.

This month we have some very important due dates. We need Resolutions submitted to the State Secretary by March 15th for the State Convention. You should be holding your Delegate elections to the State Convention this month as well, and returning your Certificate of Elections to our State Secretary, Pat Kelley, too. This is also the month that each Council's  Grand Knight in the State writes a small synopsis of what his Council has accomplished this year for the Convention Booklet. Remember to submit this to your District Deputy in MS Word format by April 1st.

Speaking of April 1st, that is also the due date for the following Award submissions: Family of the Year (to Family Chairman), Knight of the Year (to Council Chairman), Harry Tucker Fraternalism Award (to Council Chairman), George C. Turk Gift of Life Award (to Community Chairman), and the Wade S. Walden FDD Platelets Heroes Award Honor Roll (to Community Chairman).

The second group of Award submissions are due April 15 and include: Pro-Life/Herbert Liebert Award, Church Program Award, Community Program Award, Council Program Award, Family Program Award, and the Youth Program Award. (These are submitted to the respective Chairman).

Time is flying by and I have to say I am really enjoying representing you as your State Deputy. I have some news for everyone.  For the remainder of this year and all of next year the State of Washington was assigned a new Membership and Programs Coordinator. Our very own Patrick and Vera Maloney will once again be our MPC.  Welcome back Pat & Vera! We say good-bye to Ray and Becky Lopez who have served our State well for the past two years and we wish them  "fair winds and following seas!"

Have a great and busy month everyone and we will likely see many of you on our travels!

God Bless!
