4th Degree-Patriotism

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 vote, to do what is necessary for their Assembly.
All elected officers are required to submit accurate contact information on the form 186. This form can be found on-line at the Supreme website: 
The Main K of C phone number is 1-203-752-4000. Deadline for this form is July 1, 2018.....original copy is sent to:
Supreme Council Office
Department of Membership Records
The form can also be faxed to (203) 752-4113. Copies must be send to the Master by e-mail or to address listed below. A copy must be kept by the Assembly for their file.
Next the Civic Award Application  : Those Assemblies deemed outstanding in their implementation of an agenda of patriotic programming for the 2017 -2018 fraternal year are eligible to receive the Supreme Council's CIVIC AWARD. This award is a tribute to the spirit of Patriotism and National pride exemplified by the Assembly's program of activities. Those Assemblies winning the award should display it with justifiable pride. In order to qualify for the CIVIC AWARD, the Assembly must conduct and report at least four varied patriotic programs held within the fraternal year. Please note that Assembly programs must be patriotic in nature. Programs must be reported on Form 2321, signed by the Faithful Navigator and submitted to:
Knights Of Columbus Supreme Council
Department of Fraternal Services
This application must be received by the Supreme Council office no later than June 30, 2018. This form can be accessed using the same link listed above for form 186.
