Message from Our Grand Knight Tom Scalise
Dear Brother Knights & Sister Columbiettes,
I hope everyone had an enjoyable and safe summer. It is now time to get the 2018-2019 Columbian Year in full
swing! In a way to curtail costs, it was decided that we go to a bi-monthly Mariner newsletter our first being September- October 2018.
Our installation of officers for the 2018-2019 Columbian Year will be held on Tuesday, September 25 at 7:30pm.
All officers should attend. Family and friends are welcome, and refreshments will be served. If you are planning to attend, please e-mail at email@example.com or leave me a message at 516-532-1691. A reminder will be
The annual Pride in Port Parade will be on Saturday September 29. Parade starts at 11:30 am and it has been our
tradition the Knights and Columbiettes will be marching.
We will meet behind Carlo’s Pizza at 11:00am. A reminder will be sent out the day before the parade. We will be marching in our blue polo shirts. If you do not have a polo shirt, please let me know ASAP and I will order them from Arena Sports.
We will be hosting a 1st and 2nd degree at our Council Tuesday, October 9. Our membership goal is 10 new members and the insurance goal is 4 new policies. To date, we have 1 new member who has joined our order, so we are on our way! Please spread the word around to any friend who might be interested in joining our order.
Last year we were asked to assist Our Lady of Fatima in their 1st Oktoberfest celebration. We must have done a really good job because they asked that we assist again this year. This year’s festivities will be on Saturday October 20 at the Polish Hall. We will be looking for 6 members to volunteer. Please e-mail me or leave me a message if you would like to participate. Once I have additional details I will pass them along.
The floor in the Council hall needs to be replaced. I have not been accepting rental requests until it has been replaced. This will be a good time to also paint the hall and change the lighting to bring the place up to date. I would like to think that we could have members volunteer to help with the painting which would drastically keep the cost down. If you are able and willing to assist, please let me know.
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Brother George Mal-hame to our Council. George took his 1st and 2nd degree this past August. Let's hit the ground running in September to make this a successful and enjoyable year for the Council!
