Fellow Brothers of 13467,
We weathered the storm! Last year was challenging, but we did it. Guess what? We
came out of it a stronger council and better Knights. I for one, instead of cursing the covid, used it as a
personal development and looking out for my wellbeing and taking stock of my priorities.
Welcome to the new fraternal year. While charity is our utmost importance, the theme of this year is going to be
fraternity and fellowship. I look forward to being together again. Our meetings will be returning to the school, and I
hope to bring the monthly breakfasts back in September.
We had our first Knight's Night Out in May at New Realm Brewery. It was well attended by brothers and their
families yearning to get together and we were pleased to have two widows join us.
Speaking of widows. We have begun an Initiative to assist our widows under the leadership of PGK Jack
Shick. We will offer any assistance they need while notifying and including them in our social activities.
Yes, gentlemen it is a whole new year. A year filled with endless possibilities. I hope you share my optimism,
This month, I challenge you to meditate on the excitement, and desire to roll up our sleeves. As we
always say if you are not having fun doing it, you are doing it all wrong.
But those who hope in the LORD will renew their
devoted to our Blessed Mother, I challenge you to
strength. They will soar on wings like eagles;
assist your council in implementing the Faith in
they will run and not grow weary; they will walk
and not be faint.
Shawn J Hutchings, PFN, Grand Knight
