Message from the Grand Knight
CHURCH, FAMILY AND FRATERNITY
We had many successful events in the hall since our last newsletter was printed and many brother Knights, their families and the Ladies Auxiliary of George Brent need to be thanked for their hard work and dedication. A hearty “thank you” to Our Worthy Chancellor / Membership Director, Tom Masarick and the Membership Team for a successful Recruitment Drive and Open House; Also, “thank you” to our Worthy Warden Billy Bolton, his wife Judy and all of his helpers for a successful Labor Day Picnic. PGK Milt Shomo Chaired the PGK Dinner. Due to necessary back surgery for Milt, PGK Tom Bowmaster had to fill in as the Master of Ceremonies Many thanks to Milt, Bo and the many helpers needed to make the event a huge success honoring PGK Carlos Sousa and his wife Tuxa.
Congratulations to Grand Knight, Greg Murray and the new Father Jon O’Brien Council in Haymarket.
Last Year the Anchor Club implemented a plan requiring any item borrowed from the Knights Hall to be signed out before removal from the Hall. The plan is needed to save time and quickly locate items borrowed from the Hall. We will enforce this program again this year. All property of the Anchor Club leaving the Hall must be signed out. This includes but is not limited to kitchen utensils, pots, pans, chairs, tables, projector, screen, lighting devices, flags etc. The checkout sheet is located in the kitchen on a clipboard across from the entrance. Approval must be granted by the current Grand Knight and items must be checked back in when they are return. Anyone not following the plan will lose their Hall privileges.

Knight of the Month - September
I have known this brother Knight for many years. He has chaired many events at the Hall. He helps with the blood drive, tending bar, working in the kitchen, he leads the rosary at Council meetings and in the Club Room on Tuesdays. He is the Membership Director, Church Director, Captain of Team 4 Bingo, the Bar Czar and Chancellor. This year he organized the best Recruitment Drive that I can remember.
It is my pleasure to present the September Knight of the Month to Brother Tom Masarick.
Family of the Month - September
This brother Knight and his wife have been active in the Council for many years. He co-chaired the Labor Day Picnic she helped cook the meal and setup the food table. He set up All Saints Church for the Installation of Officers. He is the Chairman of the KCIC program, fills the candy machine, managed the Family Breakfast for the past two years, and has helped with the Blood Drive. He can often be found setting the hall for many events. He is an officer of the Council.
