State Warden 2019 - 2020

November 2019

We are rapidly approaching the middle of the 2019-2020 fraternal year when Councils will be completing their Annual Survey of Fraternal Activity, which should be submitted to the Supreme Council by 31 January, 2020. Grand Knights and Financial Secretaries will be asking each Knight to provide a brief summary of their individual activities during the past calendar year in December so that the Annual Survey form 1728 can be completed in a timely manner. I encourage all Knights to provide this information to their Council’s Financial Secretary because this is how the Knights of Columbus maintain their status as a charitable organization with the Internal Revenue Service.

On another note, I am receiving and reading monthly service reports from less than 10% of Washington State Councils. Contrary to popular belief, reading these reports is not a masochistic act. It is both interesting to read about the ways that some of our Washington State Councils do the things that they do and informative because the reports provide a perspective on the diverse ways that our Councils are able to serve their neighbors, communities, Parishes and our nation in so many different but effective ways.

Disseminating information about the different ways our Washington State Councils carry out their charitable mission, working together in unity as fraternal brothers, is a task I am working toward formalizing. We can talk about our Council’s activities fact-to-face; however, this form of communication has a limited audience. I will gratefully receive any suggestions our members may have as to how I can accomplish this task efficiently and effectively. I do read every monthly service report and am impressed by the effort and effectiveness of Knights of Columbus Councils in Washington State.

Those Councils that are not submitting their monthly service reports, please start completing these. July, August and September are past. October will also be history when this report is published in the State Bulletin. It is not to late to submit the past due monthly service reports so please provide these if you have not already submitted these.

The mid-year meeting for District Deputies will be at the Red Lion Inn 6-8 December, 2019. I encourage all District Deputies to make their Hotel Reservations as soon as possible. You should arrive at the hotel no later than 5:30 PM because meetings will begin at 6:00 PM. Please return your completed registration form to me as soon as possible after receiving the form. Your timely response will be greatly appreciated.
