Dear Brother Knights, Sister Columbiettes, Families and Friends,


   As we now have said Goodbye to April and welcoming in May and very soon the Columbian year
will come to an end. We held a meet and greet for our own Ed Newborn , starting off the month on
April 2nd as we know , although not yet official,  that Ed will be the new State Warden coming July
1st. Ed has held numerous offices as a Knight but this will be his biggest Challenge and we
support him completely.  We will be losing our Financial Secretary but gain so much more. Jerry
Scotti now will be switching positions from Treasurer to our FS. We gave out knight of the month
awards at our meeting on April 20th with March K of M being Dennis Maragliano and April being
Joe Nolan. As usual it is hard to pick these awards as we are blessed with an active council. On
April 22, the Columbiettes held there spring dance entitled “A Little Bit of Country” and along with
Crystal Image they brought in Country Line Dance instructors who entertained us as well as taught
all how to do line dances. We held our annual Sheperds Night on April 4th, Spy Wednesday on
April 12th and our Communion Breakfast on April 23, 2017 where we gave our Rookie of the Year
award to Jim Mavricos, Knight of the Year To Rick Seaman and Family of the Year to the Fregelette
Family. In May we have our May Crowning May 20th. I would like to thank all that come down to help
and as we approach the end of the Columbian year please know that even a little help goes a very
long way.

Vivat Jesus,

Matt Kuczinski GK
