August 2017

Brother Knights,

It was good to see so many of you at the Summer Leadership Meeting last month in Spokane! What a positive way to start off the fraternal year with training and brotherhood. I hope you all will take the information provided and get your Councils off to a fast start this year.

The Monthly Service Report is now available on the state website at http://kofc-wa.org/Forms/MSR/nnMSR.aspx. The form was not available until after August 1st so I will accept your July MSR until August 20th. Don’t miss out on this one-time grace period! The leadership of each Council is expected to complete this form on a monthly basis and I will provide tracking results in this column each month.

If you have not already started planning your fraternal year, you are already late! This is the time to start planning out your Council activities, getting dates on the calendar and commitments from your members. Many of your members may be busy and unable to help out on short notice, but if you give them plenty of time they often can help out.  Use your Fraternal Planner, also available at the Supreme website at http://www.kofc.org/un/en/resources/membership/fraternal-leader-success-planner5033.pdf. The Membership and Program Activities At-A-Glance is a great way to plan out your year with the various Council activities

Upcoming activities that you should already be working on include:

  • Soccer Challenge
  • Order-Wide Church Drive
  • Tootsie Roll Drive
  • Coats for Kids

If you have any questions on specific programs, please feel free to reach out to me and to the State Chairmen for that program. I can’t stress how important it is for each Council to have strong and visible programs in their communities, there is much work to be done and it helps to reach out to prospective new members and help you meet your membership goals.

Brothers, the success of your programs starts with you! My challenge to each Council is to try at least one new program this year. Send me a write up of your experience with a new program and I will make sure to publish as many of your updates as I can in the bulletin and on the state website. Be that guy who steps up to lead that new program that your Council has talked about but never been able to execute.

 

Vivat Jesus!

Fraternally,

 

Tom Williams
General Program Director
