May 2021

The end of the 2020-2021 fraternal year is near. The Silver Rose arrived in Washington State 16 April 2021, earlier than expected, because the Silver Rose was sent to the Washington State Council directly from Alaska by the Alaska State Council. Early receipt of the Silver Rose enabled expansion of the Washington State Pilgrimage of the Silver Rose to include the Spokane area beginning with Nine Mile Falls Our Lady of the Lake Council 16184. There are still some openings for Councils not originally included along the planned route during 2021 that would like to host the Silver Rose. Please contact Brother Mike Taylor DD16 (, phone (425) 485-8056) if your Council would like to be part of the Pilgrimage this year.

We regret that we will not be able to celebrate the 2021 Pilgrimage of the Silver Rose with our British Columbia/Yukon State (Provincial) Council this year because the border remains closed and our northern Brothers are unable to congregate due to increasing effects of the worldwide pandemic in Canada. We look forward to the opportunity for future celebrations with our Canadian Brothers; however, during the interim please keep our Canadian Brothers in your prayers.

The Washington State Council’s Convention and election of officers is still in the planning stages. Unfortunately, we will not be able to meet as a group. However, we will conduct a special virtual award ceremony after the Convention to recognize those Knights, Families, Councils, Chairmen, and others who have made significant contributions during the 2020-2021 fraternal year. The Washington State Council is extending the deadline for submitting award applications for all categories until 5 May. Please submit nominations for Knight of the Year, Family of the Year, the Harry J. Tucker, Jr. Award for Fraternalism, the Gift of Life Blood Donor Honor Role, the Wade S Walden, FDD Platelets Heroes Award Honor Roll and the Faith in Action Program awards if your Council has not already done so. ALL APPLICATIONS AFTER 15 APRIL MUST BE SUBMITTED DIRECTLY TO STATE WARDEN, SCOTT HULSE EITHER BY EMAIL ( OR BY PRIORITY SNAIL MAIL (Scott E. Hulse, 6911 Holeman Avenue, Blaine, WA 98230). It is more important that we recognize outstanding service and achievements than be concerned about deadlines during this year of the pandemic. Nominations and applications will be accepted until 5 May 2021, when it will be necessary to complete the evaluation process.

I personally want to thank all of my Brother Knights for their efforts and hard work during the past year. We have accomplished so much!! Keep up the good work and prepare for the upcoming fraternal year.


Vivat Jesus!
