FY 2020-2021 Fraternal Year:
Worthy State Officers, District Deputies, Directors, Grand Knights, Delegates, and Brother Knights, we have all been dealing with the events that have transpired since February at whatever level we feel most comfortable and for the protection of those around us. I have listened to the varying concerns from as many as I have talked to since we held out Virtual State Convention in May.
I have decided in the interest of our membership demographic and the availability of providing a safe environment for all attendees that we err on the side of caution and have a virtual meeting for both the District Deputy Organizational Meeting (Saturday, July 18, 2020) and the State Quarterly Meeting (Saturday, July 25, 2020). Further details will be forthcoming before the end of June.
Closing out Fraternal Year 2019-2020:
By now every council should be transitioning to their newly elected Council Officers for the 2020-2021 Fraternal Year. For those that held your elections in May, I thank you for listening back in July, and hope that the extra time has allowed you to work with the incoming council team. Remember the end of year submissions; Form 185, Form 365, SP-7, and make your annual update submission on the State Council website for your council’s contact information for the new State Directory Book.
Sue and I want to thank you and your wives for the support this fraternal year. As things continue to challenge us as Knights of Columbus, I thank you for adopting the changes that are necessary for us to move forward. Stay safe, help your neighbor, be proud to be a knight.
Joseph J Kowalik III, State Deputy
