State Deputy's Granite Award Address.GlenAndJoleneCamley2017

Welcome to this, our 29th Annual Granite Award Banquet, honoring the best of New Hampshire’s citizens. Their acts of charity, through community involvement, reminds us of the pledge that we as Knights of Columbus have taken, as well as the virtues, moral excellence and standards we hold ourselves to.
We are honored, to be able to hold high tonight’s recipient of our Knights of Columbus, Granite Award. They will claim honor among a history of Religious from the Diocese of Manchester and the Catholic Church. Those with political attributes that hale from the Governor’s House and the State of New Hampshire, as well as those whom have found their way to positions of stature in Washington, DC.

Previous nominees have championed the rights of the unborn, fought hard to bring clothing and healthcare to the needy within the State of New Hampshire, and can even claim multiple NBA Basketball Championships.

To be nominated, alone, is an honor that deserves praise.

I would like to take the opportunity to show appreciation to multiple people who have contributed to the success of this year’s event. Executive Secretary, Edward McCann, PSD and State Training and Development Director, Greg Taillon, PSD, who were challenged with the promotion of this year’s event, up to and including the publication of this year’s program book. Many thanks to our State Officers who chose and heap honor on this year’s Granite Award recipient. Much praise to State Secretary, Joseph J. Kowalik, III, who will be introducing your nominees and sharing the podium with me tonight. Most importantly, to Notre Dame Council #5163 Grand Knight, John McClure and his family and volunteers, for hosting this year’s event, in this warm and welcome setting.

We are all blessed.

Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve.... You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

On behalf of my wife Jolene and I, we offer our heartfelt congratulations to this year’s Granite Award recipient. Your accomplishments give hope to the next generation.
