Brother Knights,

I hope everyone had a great Christmas celebration as we are now closing our year 2017 and beginning a New Year 2018.

I first would like to give my sincere thanks to two people, PGK Robert Toigo and his wife Columbiette Financial Secretary, Joanne Toigo, for a fantastic job chairing not one, but three events, the Children’s Christmas party, the Special Adults party which I invited Joanne Toigo be a part of the event, and lastly, the council’s Christmas party. I thank them both for their giving generosity of time to make the above memorable council events happen.

Now that we are stepping into 2018, I hope you all have considered making a New Year’s Resolution. With your help we need to make Cavallaro a better council with Action Planning, especially in the areas of Membership programming, giving back, advocating, communication and marketing the Council. We need to attract and grow memberships, along with building community awareness a greater visibility.  There is quite a bit more to outline for the council’s Action Plan.

I am asking you to please attend our meetings to share your opinions and guidance to a better framework so we can develop and expand many opportunities to become involved in advancing our council’s mission. I look forward to seeing many of you beginning in January as our officers meeting will be January 2nd and general meeting January 9th. Both meetings will start 8 pm. This is my unified message to all members a chance to come together and make a difference in their own area.

My wife Janet and I wish you all a Healthy Happy Blessed New Year!
