Dear Brother Knights, Sister Columbiettes, Families and Friends,

   At the writing of this message we are in the latter part of September and things are certainly
starting to heat up. We had our Installation of Officers on September 10 and it proved to be a great
event. I would like to thank all that helped but especially thank Ed Newborn, Frank Corvino, Peter
Fyfe and Kevin Marshall for all the help in the kitchen and with the shopping for the event. We also
had our annual Family Picnic on the 17th and a good time was had by the 60 or so in attendance
and it was nice to be able to give back to the members that have been there all year for us. I would
like to thank all those that turned out to help including Kevin Marshall, Frank Corvino, Dave Clark,
Steve Dolan, Pete Fyfe, Dan Delauro, Rich Scalise, Marie Fyfe, Gerard Cummings, Anthony
Frigaletti, and John Gallard all of whom put in many hours to make the event a success. Music
was provided by Matty. We also had a first degree on September 15th and 6 members signed up
and took their first degree.

   We have some very important events coming up but the most important is the PGK dinner for
Karl at the Staten on November 5th from 7-12. Karl worked hard as our Grand Knight for the past 2
years and bringing us to Star and Double Star council and you should have all received
your letter and hopefully you are planning to attend.  Italian Night will be held on October 1st and I
am being told that this event is sold out.  The Columbiettes Halloween Party is set for 10/29

   At this time I would like to reiterate what I said at the first degree and that is request for more
members to get involved with the many council activities both to help and to relieve some of the
burden on the members that are always raising their hand to help out. Another thing that needs to
be mentioned is the writing and printing of this bulletin each month and for all members to update
the website with your email address or to sign into the council website and download a copy so
we can save on the mailings, labels and postage.
