April 2009




My Brother Knights,


As time rolls along, we are nearing the end of our Lenten journey. Easter will be here before you know it. Let me take this time to wish all of my brother Knights and their families a Happy and Blessed Easter!


As all of you know, our Council hosted a major degree (Second and Third Degrees) on March 8, 2009. As usual, things came together slowly but as the degree came closer everything fell into place. We ended up with 22 candidates for the degrees. I had a handful of brother Knights who stepped in and did a wonderful job in helping to set up for the degrees and also breaking down and cleaning up after the degree work. Thank you all so much for your dedication and hard work I could not have done it without you. I would also like to thank the degree team for the wonderful job of putting on the degrees. Dinner after the degree work was catered by Italia Gardens. The food was wonderful. Thank you to the management and staff at Italia Gardens.


It seems we still have a few brother Knights who have not paid their dues for 2009. Knight Alerts have gone out. Please send in your payments ASAP to avoid any further actions. Thank you.


The date of the Detroit Tiger baseball game has been set for July 26, 2009. Seats are in the lower deck. Price for the game and the bus excursion is $50. The price breaks down to $18 for the bus ride and $32 for the ticket into Comerica Park. If you are interested in attending, please call PGK Paul Drevon at (810) 732-5961.


As stated in my last report, our Council will hold nominations and election of officers earlier this year. Whether you plan to run for office or to nominate a brother Knight for an office, please plan to attend our April 14, 2009 meeting and take an active part in our (your) Council.


I have named Matt and Maryann George for the March 2009 Family of the Month. I have named DGK Samuel Sanchez, PGK Paul Drevon, Mark Davidek, Jack Tylus, PGK Dan Jordan, Matt George and PGK Don Collins as March 2009 Knights of the Month.


Happy Easter.



James Schilling,

Grand Knight
