Letter From The Deputy Grand Knight

My Dear Brothers, it with deep sadness that I begin this message to you , because we have lost another Knight. On March 13, 2014, Brother Harold Grandi passed from this life to be with Our Savior. I turned to Brother Harold concerning several issues over the years and will surely miss his wisdom and advise. On behalf of the Council, I want to extend our deepest sympathy to his family. He will be missed by all.

As we enter the third week of Lent, we are again called to change ourselves, to become better Christians. Through sacrifice and prayer, we encounter the very Jesus we strive to imitate. Our thoughts are turned to the Savior who suffered and died on the cross for us. Soon we will recall his triumphant entry into Jerusalem when we celebrate Palm Sunday. The recently released motion picture,"Son of God" , again gives us a glimpse of the sacrifice Our Savior Jesus made for each of us. We need to all remember to do our best to become like Him, in all things, great and small.

We had a gas leak at the Knights Hall and several of our brothers are helping to get that problem resolved. I feel that it is going to be a great cost so I again ask each of you to give a little bit of your time to work bingo on Friday nights. We are really going to need the funds to update all the gas lines within. The plumbers are not cheap and are working as fast as they can to get things up and running.

In closing, I thank all of you for your support of the Knights. Be thinking of officers for this next year. and keep in mind the dates, May 15th thru the 18th for the Annual State Convention. I will be attending and have more information if anyone is interested in also attending. God Bless all of you and your families. Have a great Lenten Season!
