Grand Knight Report May 2020

Hello Brother Knights,

Hello to all my Brother Knights. I hope everyone is safe and healthy. I know it’s a hard time right now but we will all get through this. In no time we will be back having fun and doing our charitable work down at the Knights. I will say doing zoom calls with family and friends have been nice. It’s funny through this I think I’m talking to some of my family and friends more than ever. I hope you are all staying busy and getting things done. 

As Grand Knight it has been one of my greatest pleasures to watch the council send donations to the multiple charities in our community. The council sends the donations from our charitable Bingo program. Unfortunately during this Covid-19 pandemic we have had to shut down this Bingo program so we have been unable to send our normal charitable donations. We know that many in our community have also been forced to make these tough decisions as well. Schools are closed for the rest of the year, restaurants can only serve delivery and take-out, and most churches have to close their doors. We have been unable to make our normal charitable donations because we simply do not have the funds. 

The reason I am writing to you is to ask for your support. The council officers have decided to try to raise some funds so that we can continue to support charities that are in desperate need. If you can make a donation to the Lynn Knights of Columbus it would be greatly appreciated. Donations of any size are helpful. We understand that many people are suffering at this time and that not all will be able to support this cause financially, so we also ask for your prayers. 

The money raised will be used to support charities that we normally donate to such as my Brother’s Table and the five Lynn parishes. The officers will determine how exactly to disperse the donation and will give an account of all funds raised and dispersed to the membership. In order to donate go to lynnkofc.com/support.  Thank you for your support. We look forward to reopening our doors and seeing each other in person. Please stay safe and healthy and see you soon.

The Cornhole Tournament was postponed to the future. If you have any questions please contact  DD Tito Cabrera eltito27@gmail.com 781-248-1286.

Please all stay safe and healthy. God Bless you all.

Fraternally Yours,
GK Robert MacIsaac
