Dear Brother Knights, Sister Columbiettes, Families and Friends,

    While we are now approaching spring time I realize that we have made it through the winter
fairly easy and are now coasting into spring. As a council and a Knight we have been busy but that
is not letting up we have several important events coming up that we will need to pay special
attention to. Our Chaplain  Father John Steven Kostic , went in for a routine pre op test for his foot
surgery and ended up with triple bypass surgery and will be going to rehab in upstate NY once he
is released from the hospital. I cannot say what he has meant to this council and I need all of you
to join me in praying for him that he has a speedy recovery and will be able to relax and enjoy his
pending retirement.  We will be discussing moving forward on his replacement and will keep
everyone posted. We have a big event coming up on April 2nd which will be a meet and greet for
the new soon to be NY State Warden our very own ED Newborn. I hope all of you can attend this
event. WE have the St. Patrick’s day Parade on March 5th and the St. Patricks Dance on March 11th
so please check the bulletin for the details. Thank you to all that attended the 104th Charter mass
for our council held at St. John Nueman  and a special thanks to the Color Corp who turned out for
the event. We also had plenty of help that day with the setting up and breakdown and of course the
membership drive so thank you to all.


Fraternally Yours,  
Matt Kuczinski GK
