Grand Knight Report June 2020

Hello Brother Knights,

Hello to all my Brother Knights. I hope and pray that everyone and their families are safe and healthy during this pandemic. It has been an interesting year for me as Grand Knight to say the least. A third of my year has been during this time that no one saw coming. I love seeing all the pictures and stories of our Brother Knights still stepping up and helping out during these times. 

I am proud to say we got to put together two last events before I am no longer a Grand Knight. One we did on May 27th. We got together and made 100meal bags for those in need for the My Brother’s Table. Thank you F.S. Michael Scarlata, O.G. Peter MacIsaac, PGK and Treasurer Michael Phelps, PGK and DD Tito Cabrera and Recorder John Sumares and his lovely wife Nancy for all participating. A special thank you to PGK and Treasurer Michael Phelps and PGK Brian Magrane for helping facilitate the event. June 3rd we had our third blood drive, teaming up with the American Red Cross. I want to thank all who put this together especially PGK Dave Solimine Jr. Thank you also to all those who donated. This will help in our fight against the virus.

The election of officers will be Tuesday June 2 at 8pm. Please come show your support for DGK Matthew Harrington as he goes into being Grand Knight and his slate of officers. Matt has helped me tremendously throughout my year so I know he will be a great Grand Knight.

This will be my last bulletin as Grand Knight. We had to cancel the Testimonial and a bunch of other events so I won’t be able to thank everyone in person but it has been an honor being your Grand Knight. I hope I did alright. I will miss it and as I said I know Matt will do great. Thank you to everyone that stood by my side helping me through this year. A bunch of people helped.

I want to acknowledge a special few. PGK and Treasurer Michael Phelps and PGK Charlie Rowe, you Brother Knights told me from the second I became Grand Knight anything I needed you would be there and you were. I really appreciate that. Also PGK and DD Tito Cabrera thank you for all your help and being a Brother to me. Finally my Dad. He didn’t want to be an officer at all but for his son he stepped up and he was there every step of the way. Thank you Outside Guard Peter MacIsaac. Please continue to support and give donations to www.lynnkofc.com/support at least until we can get our Bingo program back. 

Fraternally Yours,
