Worthy Sir Knights:
The very busy month of May has concluded, with good
attendance of the Color Corps, honoring the many requests from local parishes and civic events this year. The word has gotten out that the Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus....are not only very
active, but are a welcoming sight by many, who remember the days when our numbers were much greater. As I have criss-crossed the Third New York District, attending as many functions as my busy
life will allow, I have found great cooperation with the many Assemblies, of whom I've had the Honor of supporting their events and attending services to which they have been requested to
participate. In many cases, just a few members have made a delightful display of Color Corps, and the onlookers were ecstatic with their appearance. Keep doing the great job of being the visual
connection to our Order.
In June....many tasks have to be performed by every
Assembly....and must be submitted to Supreme, and a copy to me, by the deadline date required.
Election Of Assembly
Officers: Slates should have been put together in May meetings, so that election of officers must be conducted at the June meeting. If ANY post is not filled.....record VACANT. All elected
officers who accept the duties of office, MUST fulfill their duty at the post to which their membership has given their confidence...by vote, to do what is necessary for their Assembly.
