Grand Knight June 2024

Brother Knights,

This will be my final newsletter article as your Grand Knight. Thank you for allowing me to lead this great organization these past 2 years. I hope I have served you well and honorably. We have accomplished many great things these last two years and this is because of the dedication and commitment of our Knights and their families. Thank you for making this journey a success for all of us.

We have our fireworks stand just around the corner. You have received emails regarding sign up for volunteers. If you have students for family members that need service hours for school or other programs, working the stand counts toward these. You will continue to receive emails about the sign-ups for a couple of weeks.

Congratulations to James McCarville as our Knight of the Month. James is the point man for our fireworks each year and does a great job! Thanks James.

The Knight Family of the Month is my wife Claire and I. Thank you to the officers for voting us as the Family of the Month. Thank you to Claire for allowing me to spend much time and effort in leading this Council these past 2 years.

The past 2 years I have asked you to give. I have asked you to give time to our endeavors, I’ve asked for donations, we’ve asked you to pay your annual dues, I’ve asked and asked until we are all blue in the face! This final request I have of you is to TAKE. TAKE time in prayer for each other, TAKE time to spend with your spouse, your children, your family, your neighbors and yourself. TAKE time to read a book or lay on a blanket outside and look at the clouds. TAKE a deep breath. And finally TAKE a look around and thank God for what we have, all because of Him, His sacrifice and His love.

Thank you and may God continue to bless us all.

Ron Schinkel,
Grand Knight 833
