Hello Brothers,

One of the events that my wife and I always enjoy and make time for is The  Bloomsday Race, held in Spokane. There is something so cool about being in a "race" with 55,000 other people. Valerie and I have just finished our 24th Bloomsday. One of the things that has become more and more visible in Spokane these last few years is the striking increase in homeless people that live on the streets. It's one of those things you notice but maybe you choose not to really see, or you hear but choose not to really hear. So much need. So much hunger. So sad.

This month I got an opportunity to help those folks in downtown Spokane. I was talking to Art Smalley from Colbert Council 8872 and he invited me to join he and his Council to feed those very people I was talking about. So I did! I got up early, drove to Spokane (about 2.5 hours one way) and I met them right downtown on 3rd and Pacific Ave. and away we went. Art and the Council set up a Mobile Food Van from Second Harvest, paid for the food and we all volunteered by handing out something to these folks that got in line to circle the truck. Read more...

Everybody and Nobody

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it. Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it. But, Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

Just think what we could do if Everybody participated in at least one event a year whether it be in Faith, Family, Community, Life representing the KofC.

Happy Easter! Yes, we still have a week of Easter left. Let’s not allow the wonder and joy of the Resurrection to fade from our minds and hearts.

Truly, the month of June is a time of much celebration in the Church. The Ascension of the Lord and Pentecost round out the Easter season, but Trinity Sunday and the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi) keep the momentum of Easter going, in a sense.

At the end of June (Friday after Corpus Christi) comes the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Read more...

My Dear Brother Knights,

Electing me to serve as your State Deputy is an honor and a deeply humbling experience at the same time.

Twenty years ago, when a Priest and a stranger from my then “new” parish asked me if I would consider joining the Knights of Columbus, a strange sense of familiarity came over me as I faintly remembered that name from my childhood some 40 years before. I could only remember that there was something so good about that name and that organization that I knew I was being called to become a member. Read More...

Brother Knights,

As of this writing, the State Officers, Chairmen, DDs, GKs, etc. are very busy with Convention preparation. Since our bulletin cutoff is the 15th of the month, our reports will not seem current.

I ask that you, PLEASE, get your account balance paid to a zero balance for Greg Mahoney. He will be taking over the State Treasurer position July 1st and it would be courteous to have all Exemplification accounts paid up to date.

Remember, a $7 fee per each new member brought into our Order is due to WSC from the receiving council. Read more...

Annual Meeting / Resolutions / Cornerstone Conference 2019 / Safe Environment Program Compliance

Annual Meeting:  I hope all those who attended the convention in Bellevue this year had a great time.  It was fun, and we took care of business in a way that allowed time to also visit with friends and make new ones.  The food was delicious too. The burgers were so good on Friday night, State Secretary Elect Kim Washburn and I went up for seconds.  Thank you for electing me as your next State Treasurer.  It will be an honor to continue to serve the Washington State Council.

My Brothers,

This is my last article as your State Warden – it is hard to believe that it has already been two years! This has been a tough but fulfilling two years for me, and I am so glad you put your trust in me to be your State Warden. I will continue to work to earn that trust as your State Advocate.

The Convention was a great success, with us saying good bye to some folks and hello to others.  Thank you for all of you whom attended to share in our celebration of the Knights over the past year. Read more...

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. Read more...
