GRAND KNIGHT’S REPORT                                                                                                                                                                         Carl Brochard

We are just about over for this physical year and we still need some one to step up and take the Grand Knight office.  We now have all of the offices that at least one person has agreed to take for now.  I would hate for this council fold up because no one would take the Grand Knight position.  It is not fair for me to keep on this job, but I am not able to do it anymore.

We had the KC convention this past week and considering it was at a Casino, which I personally don’t like conventions held at a Casino.

The Ladies did a great job with the new Council Banner, and it was used at the Convention for the first time this year.
