We have time to discuss at the next meeting and get something in. Your Grand Knight is an alternate on the Resolution Committee this year; would be a great year to get something inventive in like group health insurance for Knights, or some state reimbursement for _Building the Domestic Church_ expenses. We have time, our next council meeting is January 19th, and the deadline is January 24th.
