Dear Brother Knights,
It is indeed my extreme pleasure to announce to all of you that the New York State Council is now in the CIRCLE OF HONOR. It came down to needing 23 new members yesterday and your State Membership Team led by Thomas Moran, Director; Ralph Cefalo, Recruitment; James Funaro, New Council Development; Peter Lehr, Online Membership and Crispin Reyes; Multi-Cultural Development; continued the push into the very end.
This has truly been a team effort all year long. To every member, Grand Knight, and District Deputy that brought in a new member you share this honor. We in New York State have not had the pleasure to bask in the glow of the Circle of Honor for 25 years. We were on the computer and the phones from early yesterday morning until 6/7 PM trying to close the deal on 23 more members. For everybody we called or asked for your help you played a big part in helping us get over the goal line. My sincere thanks go out to our Associate State Chaplain, Fr. Mike Gelfant, who is finishing as GK with a council who made 530% of their membership goal. He helped us with 5 more members yesterday. That’s what I call teamwork from the top down.
We now can take some time to celebrate this achievement as we gather at our annual state-wide DD’s meeting and State Installation. And for those of us attending the Supreme Convention in Nashville we will represent all of you well as we are named to the Circle of Honor. Now we focus on the new fraternal year and the new challenges that we must face. Blessed Michael J. McGivney, pray for us.
Deacon Charles Esposito, NY State Deputy
