I pray that you are in good health and spirits. I am writing to inform you about that our Grand Knight Tom Fitzgerald has left our area to move to Texas and join his family there. Tom has served our Council 8009 in an outstanding manner. He has made our Council financially strong with his tenacious leadership in many projects, such as the Golf outings, Oktoberfest, Fish Fry and supported fund raising dinners. We will miss him tremendously. Please attend the March Business Meeting to thank him and and give him a great sendoff!
Tom is now a Past Grand Knight and subsequently our Council 8009 held a special election at the February Business Meeting. I was nominated and elected to fulfill the remaining 2019 term until June 30. At the March Business Meeting we will hold another special election to fill the vacant 3 year Trustee position. Any 3rd Degree Knight is eligible to be nominated. We will hold the normal nominations and elections for the 2019/2020 Council year. (April nominations and May elections).
We have a very busy month of March and I am asking each one of you to please volunteer as much as you can and show Your "Faith In Action." We have our 3rd Annual Golf Tournament March 9, Tootsie Roll Drive (March 14, 15, 16), and the Fish Frys, March 15, 22, 29 and April 5.
May God Bless you and your family and Our Council!
Grand Knight (again)
