- 7:25pm Grand Knight’s Remarks
It is an honor to be elected as Grand Knight. Nice things said about PGK Ted Seeber. We are still a young council, this is a pivotal year. GK am optimistic. Remarks made about the Knights Leadership Conference in Salem. We are a visible arm of the Catholic Church. We carry a big responsibility. We can have a big effect on our council, churches, and the population as a whole. Please read what your job is and what you are supposed to be. I have historically not been a good leader. I will try to be a good leader for this council. At this workshop I would like to recognize Dave Saunders for DD getting 178% of quota. Polinus answered a lot of questions, won a tie. I want to emphasize Charity, Unity and Fraternity. We want to help our parishes and help ourselves. A pivotal year where we can really make a difference. Star Council requirements were brought up. Oregon Baptism Pin Program was brought up. GK challenge you to ask one man a month to join.
