Worthy Brothers,

I really appreciate this time of year. Most of us are back from vacation and are ready to get busy. I have things to accomplish this year above and beyond being just another pretty face. We have four suspended Councils and those are the first priority for me. The involved District Deputies, the Membership & Programs Coordinator, Pat Maloney, and myself will be going through whatever it takes to get their problems solved so that our Washington jurisdiction can move forward. 


I'm pumped about the Regional Meetings that are coming up.  We have so many changes in our Membership structure with On-Line Membership and with our Program umbrella changing from "Surge with Service" to "Faith in Action" that we have a lot to discuss. I'll see you at your Regional Meetings and remember that these meetings are for you and where a large part of your per capita dollars go, so by all means, come and take part!!! Read more...

Hope your Council Action Plan, Programs, Officers installed, chairman in place, 185 & 365 complete, Tootsie Roll Drives set and Church Drives for much needed new member recruitment.

For councils using Home Corporation facilities, at the 132nd Supreme Convention in 2014, the Supreme Council unanimously adopted a resolution establishing a policy requiring councils using Home Corporation facilities to enter into written agreements governing 1) a councils use of Home Corporation facilities (the Terms of Use Agreement) and 2) how matters will be settled between the council Read More...

My Brothers,

We are approaching fall, that exciting time when the Seahawks start playing and the Mariners start fading in the playoff run . . .   :-(

I hope you have enjoyed your summer and gotten some fun in the sun. I also hope you have been busy doing God’s work, too, running programs and recruiting new members. Summertime is not the time to take your foot off the gas, we need to keep working hard. Read more...
