Dear Brother Knights, Sister Columbiettes, Families and Friends:

       On June 15th Kreischer Street (at the corner of Androvette) was co-named in honor of Sal Micciulla.
Sal, who passed away in April 2018, was a Council guard, a 4th degree Knight and an outstanding man
and Knight of Columbus.  Thank you to Councilman Borelli’s office for pursuing this co-naming on our
behalf and thank you to all who attended this wonderful ceremony and making this a memorable day for
our Council and the Micciulla family. Special thanks to Jerry Scotti, Sal Curto, Steve Burgarella, and Frank
Tansey for setting up the hall, helping out with the collation and the cleanup.  I should also mention that
Sal Curto took some great pictures of the ceremony and they can be viewed on our Council’s Facebook
page.

       We held our Family Rosary on June 20th and there was a very nice turnout.  Thanks to State Warden
Ed Newborn for arranging the evening’s service; to John O’Connor for providing the cake; to our chaplain
Father Anthony for presiding over the service and to all the brothers and their family members who
attended.
       By now you should all have received your C&B raffle books. Please fill out the information on the stubs
of the enclosed chance books and send them back to the Council with a check for $12.00 in the enclosed
envelope. Your participation in this program enables us to do so much for our service parishes here on
Staten Island.

       While the summer is generally a time for rest and relaxation, we do have several events coming up in
the next two months. On July 4th, we have the Travis July 4th Parade. Please join your Council for this
event. Come down with your family and friends and march in the oldest continuous running July 4th
Parade in the country. The Parade steps off at 12:30 P.M. Streets generally close by 11:30 A.M.; so please
plan accordingly. Refreshments will be provided.

                   Our next event is the Boat Ride for God’s Exceptional Children on July 13th at St. George Ferry
Terminal, Slip #6.  This event is sponsored by, among others, the Knights of Columbus and the Marine
and Aviation Anchor Club. Brother Tom Monahan has done a great job promoting this event for many years.

                   Although two months away it is not too early to mention our Family Picnic. This will be held on
August 24th from noon to 5 P.M.  It is a great event for young and old alike. The cost is reasonable: $15 per
person – children 12 and under are free. There will be popcorn, cotton candy and games for the younger
set, while adults will have to make do with ample amounts of food and beer.

                  REMINDER. We have an abbreviated meeting schedule for the summer. We will meet on July
18th and August 15th. There will be NO meetings on July 4th and August 1st.

May you and your families have a safe, enjoyable summer.
