Vivat Jesus! (Mar 21, 2015)

Congratulations are extended to the following for their dedication and support to Fr. Habets Assembly and the KofC mission:

SIR KNIGHT OF THE YEAR Sir Knight Gene Tortone
FAMILY OF THE YEAR Sir Knight Stan and Lady Dolores Schnell
Annual Assembly Membership Dues: Per instructions distributed by the Faithful Comptroller, please make payment online, by mail, or see the Comptroller.

Navigator's Report (Mar 21, 2015)

•    Spring Exemplification – Sat April 18th (1-day event- approx... 4 hrs.) hosted by Father McGivney Assembly 2588 in the Ascension church hall.
o    The last local 3rd degree prior to the Exemplification is at Council 511 in Hampton on 11 Apr. Prior to that there is one in Stafford on 28 Mar.  
o    Anyone interested in becoming a 4th degree Knight and wasn’t voted on tonight or before will need to be handled by exception.  Contact the F-ADM or myself ASAP.
•    Membership Dues are now due for CY 15 to the Comptroller. If you haven’t paid, please do so as soon as possible, as we rely on the dues to support our budgeted items for the FY.
•    One Fish Fry remaining, hopefully this one will fill the hall. It will be great to exceed last year’s profit of approx. $3,000.00 to help support our many patriotic and Assembly functions.  The Chairman of this event, FC Shawn will provide an update.
•    Color Guard members – FN Schnell, CDR Scharf, CAPT Hutchings, SK Bell, and PFN Tortone presented the colors at the Wounded Wear gala at the Portsmouth Renanciance Hotel with a ballroom filled with wounded warriors and other special warfare folks.  This was truly a privilege and honor to do this for these veterans. Those that could were also invited to stay for the dinner, entertainment, and key note speaker, which happened to be a double arm amputee and facial burn victim.
•    On Mar 21 eight color corps members went through training and were certified. Navigators and Commanders were asked to also stay for additional instructions.
Vivat Jesus,
FN Stan Schnell
