Worthy Brother Knights,
Business meeting will start promptly please at 7PM in the Lifeteen Room. Please arrive a little earlier so we may kick off on time as a 1-3rd Degree Exemplification will begin. Projected start for the degree is 7:45. Once the meeting is closed we will begin and any new member of no degree or 1-2 will be degreed into full Knighthood! New members coat and tie please if possible and if you plan to increase to full Knighthood if you have not let me know in advance please. All spouses are welcome to attend the degree ceremony.
For the business meeting:
1. Minutes: Meeting minutes are available via email and from GK upon request
2. Budget: Budget is available via email and from GK upon request.
3. Motions: A motion form is attached. Going forward for New Business Motions, Resolutions, or Bills please do not bring up uncoordinated business. Please if you have a motion you would like the council to consider then first prints this out, fill out the request, and send to the Financial Secretary Brother Dave DeFour, the Treasurer Brother Steve Sobotta, and me Grand Knight Chuck Bailey so that we may identify the line item if budgeted or make a determination if un-budgeted. The long poles in the business meeting have been minutes and financial and to better serve the council this will speed up our process and make it more efficient and beneficial to our brothers present. Please figure the amount you wish the council to consider and a fully staffed out plan for the motion. The council floor should not develop into a 20-30 minute good idea opportunity unless of course it is emergent and unplanned. If the item requires immense consideration and discussion then it should be broken out into a committee to report back on the recommendation.
4. New Business. Again not the place start a 20-30 minute discussion unless there is a worthy cause that has been sent in advance for no surprises and well thought out, presented, and staffed for consideration of support. Thank you in advance for your ideas and motions to better provide charity and support but let’s all tighten them up into actionable and planned activity and consideration. Planning for dinners, breakfasts, events, etc. can be done with a calling together of the Council Officers to assist in the process either by email or in person in our chambers for discernment. Thank you.

SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
