Pre-Organizational Meeting

State Deputy Steve Kehoe has approved my request to hold the Pre-Organizational meeting for District Deputies, Grand Knights, and newly appointed Financial Secretaries who will serve for Fraternal Year 2018-2019.

As announced at the annual meeting, the Pre-Org meeting will be held on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Glen Allen. The address is 4491 Springfield Road, Glen Allen, VA 23060, and driving directions are attached.

The meeting will start promptly at 8:30 a.m. and will conclude not later than 3:00 p.m. Coffee, doughnuts, and a working lunch will be served. Recommended attire is casual – collared polo shirts and slacks (no jeans or shorts, please).

This is an intensive training session for District Deputies, Grand Knights, and newly appointed Financial Secretaries who will serve during the coming fraternal year. If you are not going to fill that role next year, please pass this along to your successor. We will discuss the plans and goals for the State Council, and the roles and responsibilities of the District Deputy and Grand Knight that need to be executed properly in order to meet our goals.

Memorial Wreath Laying Ceremony

On May 26, 2018, the James Cardinal Gibbons Assembly held its Third Annual Memorial Wreath Laying Ceremony at the Virginia War Memorial to honor our Virginia men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we may be free. We were also honored to have our Worthy State Deputy Steve Kehoe and his wife Wendy join our ceremony and give a poignant speech to those present.
