Vivat Jesus! (Feb 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 (Feb 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 20th of March will be the cut-off date so we can get the application read and approved at the 25 March business meeting.
o    Prior to becoming a 4th degree candidate you have to complete the 3rd degree and been approved by an Assembly.
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 and Arlington on 8 March.   
o    This is a prime opportunity to save the cost of a hotel, spouse banquet and luncheon ticket, as well as a full weekend away.

•    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.

•    Father Richardson’s commemorative coins are still available for $5.00 each.

•    The Chaplains Appreciation night on 8 Feb was a success! Six local Chaplains, the Msgr. Vicar General from the Arch Diocese, and three sitting State Officers attended. Our Faithful Pilot, Earl did an outstanding job chairing this event and will provide more information during his close-out report.

•    One Fish Fry down five to go with our biggest fund raiser of the year. We only had $116 less in sales this past Fri night than we did at last year’s first Fish Fry night.  This was very good despite the very frigid temperatures, the condition of Prosperity Rd. and the parking lot.   Many people said as they were leaving “we’ll be back” or “we come to every one”.  This is attributed to our great service, reasonable prices, and food quality.  We had slightly fewer than 1,000 meals sold last year with slightly under a $3,000.00 net profit.  Hopefully, we will exceed last year’s profit to help support our many patriotic and Assembly functions.  The Chairman of this event, FC Shawn will provide more info during his report.
Vivat Jesus,
FN Stan Schnell
