Dear Worthy Officers, Sir Knights and Brother Knights;
My name is Tom Gravelin. I am honored being elected by the council to be your Grand Knight for 2018-2019.

I am going to do my best to maintain the standards and respect that all of you expect from me. I am very proud of the members in this council and hold in high regard the past leaders that have made this council so great.

The council mission will continue donating its time, talents and treasures to the needy, the helpless and the sick. It takes members to make this happen. My wish and prayers for the council is to see an increase in member participation in one or more events.

This builds the unity and fraternity. Remember, Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism is the mission of the Knights of Columbus while keeping God, Jesus, the holy family and her church in the forefront in all we do.

This year my goals for the council are:

Assist the Parish with their events and needs.

Increase member attendance at events, such as the Silver Rose and prayers for vocations.

Increase member involvement with council roles that are needed, such as:

Lecturer: where a brother Knight will focus on council fun activities.

Director of Recruitment and Deceased Members.

Meet our membership recruitment goals through the online program as well as face-to-face recruiting.

In closing, I want to let you know that I am here for you. I will represent this council with the honor it deserves. I have a great team and know we will accomplish our goals while having a fun time doing it. I want to see some members I do not know come to the council meetings. It is a great way to get to know you.

Vivat Jesus;

Tom Gravelin
Worthy Grand Knight
