Dear Brother Knights, Sister Columbiettes, Families and Friends,

As we approach the end of the year it is hard to believe that the holidays are upon us and we have
had an exciting year at the council. In November we had the chance to honor our PGK Karl with a
fabulous event at the Staten and I wanted to thank all that helped with the planning and organizing
of this event especially the PGK’s of our council, and especially John Palestro , Jim Henry, Billy
Caputo, Bob Benoit and our MC of the evening Ed Newborn.   We handed out coats for kids at the
food pantry on the 19th and we held our annual memorial Thanksgiving mass at St. Joseph’s. We
held a second degree and honored Reverend John S. Kostek with a second degree plaque and
had 14 people in all make the second degree. At the meeting on November 3rd I discussed how
we have the bulletins printed up and we need to fold them and then mail them and told you I would
put something in the next bulletin about adding your email to the councils website so we can avoid
mailing out so many bulletins. To add your email address to our list, go to the Council website,  and on the left side of the page click the button “Southern Knight Bulletin”  or
go directly to this address: Once on that page enter your name,
email address and home address, then click the submit button. You will then be added to Bobby’s
list. I am hoping that you all had a great and happy Thanksgiving and moving forward I wish you all
a Merry Christmas and hope that you truly have a blessed holiday season.

Fraternally Yours,  
Matt Kuczinski GK
