“Today is my last day as the Grand Knight of Council #420. It has been and honor and privilege to be able to serve you all as the leader of our Council. Please know how much I appreciated all of your extra efforts, support, and friendship during my two terms as Grand Knight!
During these difficult times caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic, I am truly inspired by the work you all have done to support our church and the community. You all have heroically answered the call to step up during this time of crisis to help those in need. Where there was a need, there was a Knight! And words cannot express my gratitude for your faith-filled service.
I want to congratulate Cameron Symonds (and the new leadership team) taking office tomorrow. Cameron was a wonderful Deputy Grand Knight and will make a great Grand Knight. I am excited for the year ahead under his leadership. It should be a wonderful year full of new and exciting programs and activities. Many thanks to all of our out-going officers for all their hard work and dedication to the Council, especially Mike Heavey for his 10+ years of service as our Council’s Treasurer.
KNIGHT OF THE YEAR & FAMILY OF THE YEAR

Congratulations guys these awards are well deserved and long overdue!!!
In closing, thanks again for all you do for the Knights of Columbus. Each and every one of you should be very proud of what we as a Council accomplished this year. You all make the difference and help build the Kingdom of God here on Earth. You are an incredible group of guys and I was honored to be your Grand Knight for a time and will continue to serve the Council in any way I can moving forward.
May God Bless you all!!! Vivat Jesus!
