Dear Brother Knights, Sister Columbiettes, Families and Friends,

At the writing of this message, I sat and watched the news talk about our professional athletes refusing to
stand for our National Anthem and all the controversy this has and will cause, but I believe we have many
other things to worry about. With so much damage caused by the tropical storms and hurricanes we
should be focusing and rallying on helping those in need. Over the last 3 weeks I have been to a few
installations and the message from the NY State Deputy and Supreme has been clear and that is, that we
would help as much as we can our brother Knights in Florida and Texas and the relief has already begun.
On November 3rd. the Knights and our Sister Columbiettes will do a joint fund raiser dinner at the council
where all profit will go to the relief effort. Please put this date on your calendar and see the bulletin for
details. Our new slate of officers were installed on September 10th and we thank you for your continued
support. The dinner was excellent and we would like to thank the cooking team of PGK Frank Corvino DGK
Peter Fyfe and our new State Warden Ed Newborn who makes some of the best meatballs on the planet.
We have a full year ahead of us and we are hoping to press for star council again but need help with
membership and more importantly the life insurance. I would like to ask each member to possibly bring in
one new member and also to consider buying insurance or better yet an annuity plan for your future. We
have some very inexpensive plans that can be purchased for as little as 100.00 as a starting point. See
Vincent Valerio for more info. Have a blessed fall and winter and Vivat Jesus!

Fraternally yours,

Matt Kuczinski GK
