669 Avenue C,
From the Office of the Grand Knight:
| The council had a busy
September and October. In September, we kicked off the Right to Life
Rose Drive, once again lead by PGK Pat Pecoraro, the collection will run
through November. Your help is needed and I appeal to all brothers to
collect for at least one mass during the drive. A schedule is
listed in the previous Star. On September 14th we held our Officers
Installation Mass and Ceremony at St. Mary’s church. Although a small
attendance was on hand, the ceremony was well presented. I want to thank
the 4th Degree Color Guard for their participation and adding a sense of
pomp to the proceedings. October was was begun with a pancake breakfast.
We had good attendance for the event which ran from 8AM to Noon. Andy
Onnacilla, who served as chairman did an exceptional job. Andy had the
help of many brothers who served the guests. We heard nothing but
favorable comments and inquiries when the next one will be. Great job
Andy and thanks go out to all who helped. This was followed on Oct. 10
with the 17th annual Knight-Mason Charity softball game and 50 / 50
raffle. This year’s recipient of the proceeds was Jillian Elias. She was
paralyzed from the neck down as a result of a horrific automobile
accident. Her medical bills are in the tens of thousand of dollars and
growing. As of this writing a final total hasn’t been determined as
donations are still being counted. The game between the Knights and
Masons was a good spirited game won by the Masons. The game was followed
by a game between the combined teams of Knights & Masons vs the Bayonne
Fire Dept. team. The Firemen prevailed in that contest. I want to thank
all the brothers who participated in this annual fund raiser. These
events that brought individuals and organizations together to work for a
common cause is a perfect example of the principle of unity. Lets keep
this in mind going forward in our work for the greater good of God’s
glory. The Holiday Season will be fast upon us, let us all also keep in
mind of the first principles of our order,
Third Degree: Officers meetings will be held on the 4th Monday of each month at 7PM.
