The Kilmer Chronicles
Joyce Kilmer Council 2483
Knights of Columbus
Chartered June 1923
Thank you Brothers for giving me, your support as Grand Knight (GK). I am hoping to fill the shoes of Andy Seger (PGK). If I do nearly as well as Andy did, the council will be in good shape. July went by fast. We are planning a Fall Softball Tournament for Saturday 9/29, for the Seminarian fund and a Roses for Life campaign, for Right to Life fund in late October at both parishes. Note, the 300 club has 12 numbers available, please reach out to Lou Williams or John Takas, if you’re interested in scooping up one of the 12 numbers.
The Joyce Kilmer council officer installation is scheduled for Thursday 8/23. It will start off with mass at 7:30, spouses and family members are encouraged to join us. Father Antony our new Council Chaplin will preside. It will be followed by the officer installation led by Worthy District Deputy Ed Suhy. Paul Greszczak worked hard at coordinating the 4th degree Color Corp to provide escort. Joe Yapaola has reserved the hall and Bob Salus plans to provide the preparation for a reception back at the hall. Therefore, in lieu of installation, the 8/16 business meeting will be cancelled, in hopes that council members will attend the mass, installation and reception (social). Please pass the word to fellow members regarding these dates and encourage them to join in the festivities.
Join me in extending heart felt congratulations to Brother Kyle Shipley and his new bride Jessica.
Enjoy your summer! Grand Knight,Keith Hollman
FAITH IN ACTION: For as along as any of us can remember, the Knights of Columbus programs were guided on the motto of Surge with Service. The new guide for us will be Faith in Action. This began with a committment to evaulte our service to parishes and families so that our work might becme even more relevant and effect. The new guide, Faith in Action, reflects this shift with a strong call to action and a focus on quality faith-filled family programs. Major program groups are Faith, Family, Community and Life. Over the next few months we will provide more information on each of these categories and the programs that will support them.
Please join me in congratulating the following brothers on attaining significant service milestones in August: 15 Years - Robert Gigliello,
8/2 John Montgomery 8/12 Ryan Dubord 8/21 John Duerr
