POC, Bro. Doug Becker.

Final Notes: Both new and long standing members, please align yourselves accordingly with proper name tags, council shirts, etc. We are members of a much larger fraternal order both nationally and internationally as all of you know. As many of you have seen, I like to keep things causal in dress at most of our gatherings, but when this council does come to order we should all be in proper council wear without fail. Thank you In matters of internal and external support and I’ve said repeatedly, that everything we do collectively be it large or small, always requires our presence in numbers if it is to be done safely and with correctness as Knights. I would also ask here that you reconsider in supporting our in- house chefs who continue to raise the attention of our parishioners who come out each month and support the efforts of our council breakfast’s. Every dollar taken in goes back into our account for
expenditures and donations we do, so again, please think about that.
My tenure as your Grand Knight is quickly drawing to a close and the voting for the now pending new fraternal year of officers will be made in June. Please keep this upper most in your minds as many of our staff of officers will also be stepping down. We’ve managed somehow despite the vacancies in key positions, i.e., Service Program Chairperson’s and others, we got the job done by a handful of regulars. This is in great reflection to your current staff of officers, for I am simply the facilitator. The next GK deserves much better and it is my sincere hope, this does not continue. We as a council are much better than that and I’ll leave it there.

Thank you “Lord, bless this council, it’s member’s and their families. We continue to pray for those away in travel, those facing illness’s, and to those facing much more. May we put aside our differences, and everything that separates us as Knight’s of Columbus.” Amen

Vivat Jesus,
Lexy Alex Larez, Grand Knight, and Council Officer’s (Fraternal Year 2017-2018)

CHARITY ~ UNITY ~ FRATERNITY ~ PATRIOTISM

Dear Council Members and Officers,

I wish to thank once again, brother Don Rowley opening the nights agenda this past Monday evening. We can learn a great deal in what your presentation entailed sir and for the record, your beloved wife Lucy is always in our hearts. 

In turning to the scope of the general meeting, it began with introducing our newest member in, !st Degree, Brother Knight, Ron Jahraus. It gives me great pleasure in welcoming both you and JoAnn into this council.

If you’ve not taken the time to review the Council Newsletter for April and Agenda’s for the months of April and May, please do so as a great deal of time has been placed in the planning to commitments and events within our council, all coming in rapid succession. These actions ranging from Road Clean-up along Glassford Hill road, to our Council Parish Breakfast, leading up to our Anniversary Dinner on the 28th, etc, all require your support when and where you can. Thank you

Support Request Submission: Brother Larry Battin as I mentioned at the General Meeting, help is needed in both, Load-Up (St. Germaine) and Set-Up in (Strawberry) AZ. on Thursday, 19 April.

Anniversary& Dinner will be held at the “Encanto Italian Grill”
located at, 8400 E. Long Mesa Dr., Prescott Valley. In recent weeks I have
conducted and evaluated a range of members and spouses for the sole purpose of
giving our chefs, spouses and myself, a break. This said, I feel you’ll enjoy the
buffet menu agreed upon which is sure to fit anyone’s appetite and limitations. I
would ask that the dress be kept casual, allowing only the spirit that binds us
be allowed in. While visiting with the owner and fellow parishioner, he has
graciously placed a nominal charge per person at, $9.00 Dollars, is what sealed the
deal with a hand shake. This celebration is to begin after the 4:30 Mass has
concluded, and rest assured there will be ample seating for us all. Also, if any
member wishing to attend and needs transportation, please let another member
help in support. More details to follow but I think I’ve said it all, yes? I thank
those I surveyed both for your input and candor. POC: GK

Final Note: Please continue to pray for our members, spouses and fellow parishioners, who live
each day in pain beyond words we don’t even see. To those who are away traveling and
to those who are simply alone. To our young men and women who protect us while we sleep.
“Freedom Isn’t Free” it used to mean something…..amen?

Prayer Request to Members, Family and Friends: Please continue as your prayers for
many within our council are needed in so, so many levels. I am in the fullness of respect to those who have shared in confidence with me your struggles and issues you face. We as a council and men of faith, have answered the call to serve others and why it is imperative above all else, that we always remain approachable, humble and focused. None of us are exempt to hardships and relentless issues that understandingly changes one’s demeanor, and why I shared mine with you when I did, as I needed strength of heart. And so I ask simply that we always be there for our fellow Brother Knights, their spouses, and every member of their family if we are to the men others will gravitate towards. Thank you
May God continue to Bless these United States of America, our men and women in uniform, and this President.
Vivat Jesus,
Lexy Alex Larez, Grand Knight, and Council Officer’s
