Hello Brothers,

I have been a very busy guy this month getting ready for the State Convention in Pasco, WA, May18-20, 2018. I am really getting excited to see everyone, especially because I have been grading Awards all this last month and that always charges me up. We do so much good for so many that it is thrilling to read about our accomplishments! 

I have some historic news for everyone in the State. On April 23, 2018 Washington State launched its On-Line Membership Program. This program has huge potential to help our State and our Order. I have heard testimonials that this program has already dramatically improved other jurisdictions. Things I heard were a possible increase of 10-15% just from this program and that in Councils that were aging out and no new members came for years now they are rejuvenated by the guys who joined first On-Line and then moved into the Council. This program will not replace our conventional recruiting but it sure looks like it will be a powerful tool to add on. I have named a Chairman for this project, Renato Sacramento, and he is a great fit. Read more...

Happy Easter! Christ is risen! Alleluia!

Yes, it is still Easter for a little longer, and still prime time for reflection on the newness of life that God offers us through the Paschal Mystery and our incorporation into it through baptism. Perhaps with the arrival of spring—and summer just around the corner—a few gardening metaphors will do us some good. There is a lot of insight for the spiritual life to be gained by looking at the common experience of gardening. Read more...

My Dear Brothers,

The Annual Convention is upon us. So far, I have sent out two Invoices to all Councils. Many have paid their Insurance, which was due last August, and their Per Capita which was due in January of this year, BUT many have not. Unpaid Per Capita and/or unpaid Insurance charges will keep your Council Delegates from being seated at the Convention and therefore will have no vote on any issues, elections, or motions on the floor.

Brother Knights,

Our sight is squarely on the Convention, so have your ducks in a row before you get there. We, also, need YOUR required paperwork to the appropriate location at State, so our ducks are in a row too. Those darn ducks get meticulous this time of year and tend to not walk or fly in a straight line.

Our membership gain for the past couple of months has been good and that means your council Exemplification fee needs to be current. Please get your Exemplification account paid to zero balance (see next page). Read more...

Brother Knights,

Our State Convention is just around the corner.  I look forward to seeing many of you there.  My message is short this month as there is much to do to prepare for our annual meeting.  I look forward to working with those selected for the Resolutions Committee.  I will send more details directly to respective committee members regarding duties and responsibilities in the coming days.

Please review my article in the April bulletin.

My Brothers,

This the busy time of year for your State Officers as we get ready for the 115th State Convention, so this will be a short message.

Keep working hard, don’t lose focus on achieving your Council goals, even as we approach the finish line. Recruit that member, run that program, submit that report . . .  There is still time to submit the Columbian Award Application (Form SP-7), which can be found at the following link: Read more...

My Brothers All,

The Convention is here!!!  I so look forward to these annual meetings to see old friends and meet new ones.  To review and hear about all the good things we have done over the year.  To celebrate those outstanding programs that touch us all.  To elect (or re-elect) our set of leaders to represent the State as Officers and as Delegates to the Supreme Convention.  Good times!  Great memories!  Hope to see you all there.
