Navigator's Report (July 10, 2016)

Navigator's Report:

I am honored to have been elected as Faithful Navigator for Father Nicholas J. Habets Assembly 1505 for the 2016-2017 Fraternal Year.  My congratulations to our new officers.  I look forward to working with you this year, which will be a great year for our assembly. 

The Tidewater Assembly installation (5 assemblies) will take place at Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Chesapeake, VA at 2PM on 24 July.  All assembly members and spouses are invited to attend. 

This year is the first full year Star Assembly will be available for assemblies to achieve.  This goal, while challenging, is not insurmountable.  The biggest challenge is recruiting, but we can do it.  Our goal is 30 new members, so we need to start recruiting now.

I hope all can join us at the Assembly Business meeting on 27 July at Habets Hall. 

Vivat Jesus,
Earl Reid
