A MESSAGE FROM OUR FAITHFUL NAVIGATOR, WAYNE MURPHY
Worthy Sir Knights,
Hoping this note finds everyone in good health. Recently I spoke with a RN from Ottawa that works in the infectious diseases department of one of the hospitals and he said “this round of this disease is not yet over and the second round this winter may be worst than the first round.” Even though things seem to be improving we must not let our guard down against Covid19.
Keeping that in mind, several of the officers were discussing what should happen with the summer barbeque. After some contemplating it was decided that for this year the barbeque will be put on hold for a year. I spoke with Sir Knight Terry Doyle a few days ago and he agreed that it is a good decision. SK Terry also said Rona and he will be more than happy to host the picnic next year. On behalf the assembly, I wish to Thank the Doyle’s for their hospitality over the many years as hosts.
I also wish to Thank Sir Knight Joe Salini (Comptroller) for his work on the special assignment requested the Vise Supreme Master SK Karl Brosch. The project was quite difficult.
As it looks at the present time the meeting in September will be put on hold. There has been no word from Supreme regarding starting meetings again.
The assembly had a request for an Honour Guard and 5 Sir Knights took part. There were 5 other SK’s in attendance of Brother Brian Price’s (8602) funeral at St. Dominic’s church. As the summer seems to be flying by, Janet and I wish everyone a safe and healthy summer.
