Bob Baemmert, State Deputy 2017 - 2018


This morning Valerie and I went walking and we saw a crocus plant that was blooming and I couldn't help but be excited for the Spring and the new season that is coming. I'm hoping that this Spring brings a new "vigor" to our members and their  families. How often I have prayed for our success and that the attitude of our membership would move toward joy and gratitude. You know: Content to do God's work. Proud of what you are doing and happy to do it. Read more...

What We Do

We will be leaning into council vision and promoting what council's do, especially, near the anniversary of our Order. Here is a link that will take anyone to the Constant Contact email so that they can get registered. The number one response it "Oh, I am busy at that day and time, so I can't attend!" Please remind everyone that these are recorded, and can be listened to individually or collectively following the presentation. Feel free to post on your website, and encourage councils to do the same. Thanks and God Bless!

February 2018  

As I sit down to write this article, it is February 2, the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord. We commemorate the day on which Mary and Joseph brought Jesus to the temple; it was the time when Simeon took the Child into his arms and “blessed God, saying:

‘Now, Master, you may let your servant go 

in peace, according to your word,

for my eyes have seen your salvation,

My Brothers,

February is here, and several things have already happened, or should have:

1.) Your Fraternal Survey should have been done and filed with Supreme by Jan 31st 

      2.) The Council Per Capita billings with up to date Exemplification funds figures has already been sent and these should be paid before the end of February as there is no Council action allowed on these bills… (no discussion, voting, etc.) Read More...

Brothers all,

We had a wonderful Mass/March for Life in Olympia January 22nd. I am so encouraged to see many knights (continues to grow) making the pilgrimage to this must see event. Archbishop Sartain was in true form with words that resonate like few others. I enjoyed cantoring and seeing the stadium full from the altar to the main entrance. I was not at the back, but it appeared we had more color guard present than I have ever seen since I have been attending. If all that were standing in the aisle and back of the stadium had taken a seat, the stadium seats would have been full. Read more...

Brother Knights,

In our world today, we find it easy to be able to communicate with many people in a short period of time.  The plethora of social media platforms at our disposal has contributed immensely to our capability to communicate quickly and broadly in a geographic sense. To be sure, we find ourselves wanting to use these platforms to communicate what we do as Knights of Columbus.  It is our responsibility as Knights to communicate effectively and wisely.

My Brothers,

How is your 2018 going so far? Are you delivering strong, visible programs to your community? Have you been recruiting new members? Are you on track for Star Council? This is the time to maintain your focus on your goals for the rest of the Columbian year!

MSRs are a great way to keep your Council striving for Star Council, and to track your progress. Remember, it is not too late to submit previous months’ MSRs via the website, so go back and catch yourself up! Read more...

My Brothers All,

We are heading into the busy time of the year with so many things that need to be planned and completed.  Let us remember to keep focused on the end game: what goals do you have for yourself and your council?  Keep focused and see it through! Read more...
