My Brothers All,

It was great to see so many of you at the State Convention in Bellevue!!  Wish more of you could have attended!  I truly enjoy the times we get together.  I love reading and hearing about your many activities, the difference you make each and every day you are out there in the community or assisting the Church!

June is the time each council is wrapping up their Fraternal Year and at the same time transitioning to a new set of officers.  The same can be said of the State Officer team. | We elected a new group of officers to lead our state into the future.  Congratulations Pat Kelley, our new State Deputy Elect!!  Also, congratulations to Kim Washburn, Greg Mahoney, Tom Williams, for moving up in the chairs.  And to our new State Warden Elect, Scott Hulse!!  I wish you all well in your journey! 

As I write this final article for the State Bulletin as a State Officer, I reflect on the many miles, meetings, functions, and discussions I was able to take part in.  I welcome with bittersweet emotions, my new role as a Past State Deputy.  Bittersweet because I really do enjoy the travel, the functions, and being part of the team of Officers that help set the direction for the state.  I relish the time I worked on your behalf.

It has been a true honor to serve these many years as your State Officer.  I have enjoyed all the times and experiences that these years have afforded me.  I treasure the memories, the friendships, and the service to the State.  I am proud of your accomplishments.  I am proud to call you brother!

As I turn my attention back home, I welcome the opportunity to become more involved with my local Council and Assembly which I have neglected these many years.  I welcome the spot I will take up - with you "in the cheap seats"!!!

God Bless.

Vivat Jesus!
