State Deputy Message – Bi-Weekly Briefing - Week of: May 28, 2023
Worthy Brother Knights,
This weekend we celebrate Memorial Day. Originally called Decoration Day, is a day to remember those who have died in the service to our country. On the 30th of May 1868, 5,000 participants decorated the graves of 20,000 Union and Confederate buried in Arlington National Cemetery. In 1880, Decoration Day was officially changed to Memorial Day. Let us take a moment during the weekend to pray for our deceased members of the Armed Forces and thank them for their sacrifices so we may have the freedoms that we have.
We have a month left in this fraternal year and I am confident that you will ensure that the year ends on a good note. To date, TWO DISTRICTS have achieved goal, there are ELEVEN COUNCILS who have met or exceeded goal, SIX additional councils need two or less to achieve goal. I am very thankful to you all for what you have done and are doing. Let us finish this year strong.
Raymond A. Lemay Sr., State Deputy, New Hampshire State Council
