WHAT’S UP @ 6855 – June 22 to 28

Worthy Brothers All,

I hope you all had a very loooooong day celebrating with your Dads / kids…

basketballAnd if today made you feel your age, perhaps you should make a point of being at our Sports Night this coming Friday.  Break out a sweat and shoot some hoops…  Bring your family along.  Let’s put some teeth into our Bro. Pat Macken’s assertion in the June 12 issue of BC Catholic:  “The Knights, faith, and sports belong together.”  (Here is a link to the article in case you missed it.)

golf-148630_640The Annual District 23 Golf Tournament held last Saturday at the Country Meadows Golf & Country Club was a smashing success with a total of 80 golfers participating from all over the Greater Vancouver area, with a number of brothers joining in the lunch and awards ceremonies.  The winners trophy now resides with Council 6855 which fielded the winning team.

Congratulations to our fully-minted 3rd Degree Brother Knights Greg Bautista, David Chong and Joseph Lo who were exemplified last Friday together with 20-plus other Brothers at the Canadian Martyrs Church.

This Saturday, we show our Parish altar servers how much we value their faithful service to our liturgical celebrations by throwing them abarbecue party along with some dodgeball for entertainment.  They do appreciate being appreciated!

Please take note that our First Degree Exemplification for June has been restored to its original schedule of June 29 Monday in order to meet the noon June 30th cut-off for this fraternal year.  As well, the State is sponsoring a special First Degree Exemplification honouring Bishop Ken Nowakowski this Friday June 26 at St. Joseph the Worker Church.  With these two opportunities, let’s all give one more big heave toward recruiting a new Knight before we wrap up fraternal year 2014-2015!

Don’t forget to share your bounty with the less privileged by bring an item or two for the Food Bank collection this weekend.

Summer is upon us — full steam ahead!
