My Brother Knights,

The 121st Convention was fantastic and I had a great time catching up with my brothers from around the state! Kudos to State Deputy Greg and First Lady Doreen for all the planning and coordination that went into a great event! Congratulations to all the winners, there were some really great programs that were submitted. No matter if you received a formal recognition or not, you are a winner for making our communities better.

Thank you for your trust in electing me to a second term as your State Secretary. As I noted after the election, being a state officer is one of the hardest yet most fulfilling jobs I have ever had. And, I appreciate your vote to attend the Supreme Convention in Quebec City this August, it will help me to strengthen relationships with Supreme and my to-be fellow State Deputies. I have a feeling that I will appreciate all the support and guidance I can get when I am in that chair!

In the coming months I will be preparing an updated version of the “Next Six Months” Letter which will cover July 1, 2024 through December 31, 2024. This will be posted on the WSC website and send via email to each Council. Please take the time to read through this letter for upcoming events and Council guidance.

I am also preparing for the July billing, which will include both the mandatory Liability Insurance invoice and the suggested LAMB1882 invoice. These will be sent by USPS mail to the Council Financial Secretary of record as of July 1st, and be based on the Supreme Membership report for each Council as of the same date.

Finally, I am reaching out to any Council who has not yet submitted any of their mandatory invoice billings over the previous fraternal year.

We will have a special emphasis on making the checks out to the appropriate entity, listed below. Please remember that checks made out to Washington State Council but intended for either Columbus Charities or Pennies For Heaven will cause both accounting issues and trouble in terms of their tax-exempt status. Remember, WSC is a 501(c)(8) corporation, which is not tax exempt, while CC and PFH are 501(c)(3) corporations, which are tax exempt. Please take pity on your SS and ST and make your checks out properly!

Pennies for Heaven – checks made out to Pennies for Heaven
LAMB1882/Coats for Kids/Tootsie Rolls – checks made out to Columbus Charities
Per Capita/Liability Insurance/KCIC – checks made out to Washington State Council

Checks should include your Council number, if you don’t have it printed on the check itself, please add it to memo line.

All checks should be mailed to my home address:

Thomas C. Williams, State Secretary
22909 40th Pl W
Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043-5001

Thank you for all your work to support our Church and Order.

Vivat Jesus!

Fraternally,

Tom Williams
State Secretary
