News for June

Just one more month of this fraternal year & we must try to meet our membership goals. So, let me ask you, “Have you asked an eligible Catholic man if he would like to join the Knights of Columbus”? That’s all you have to do. Many men are just waiting to be asked. Some might be hesitant to say yes, but that’s when you need to explain how the Knights “Change Lives & Save Lives”! I know you can do it Brother’s! So, finish out the year with a big BANG! Make your membership goal!

I received another newsletter from Bellingham Council 829! That’s two councils now. The other council is Lynnwood Council 5816.Thank you for sending in your newsletters. It’s great to hear the good works & fraternalism that our councils are doing towards “Building the Domestic Church”.

Remember, your SP-7 (Columbian Award Application) is due June 30. The application has changed from last year & so have the requirements (which I listed in last month’s article). Also, your Annual Report of Roundtables (#2630) and RSVP Refund & Plaque Application (#2863). Both are also due June 30. You can get these forms on our state website (go to the state family, then financial sec., then council forms).

I hope that your councils enjoyed the State Convention that was held in Olympia. It was a wonderful weekend. Our new State Deputy Bob Baemmert (elect) is excited to take over the reins on July 1st and your council should be getting ready to do the same. You should have elected your new officers for the next fraternal year & doing so you should be preparing them for the Summer Leadership Meeting that will be held on the 15-16th of July in Spokane.    


Wishing your councils all the very best in the next Fraternal Year!!

Ed Miller, State Council Chairman
