Worthy Sir Knights,
Fraternal Year 2016-2017 draws to a close at the end of this
month, as does my tenure as your Faithful Navigator. It has
been an amazing year, and I thank each of you first for the trust
you placed in me, and second for your participation in our many
activities. It has been an amazing journey, and I appreciate
everything that we accomplished.
In a special way, I thank those Catholic American gentlemen
who served as Faithful Officers this year. Their service to the
Assembly, whether chairing our various programs, keeping our
records in order, or keeping yours truly in line and on my toes,
has been exemplary and a true blessing
And I congratulate SK Matthew T. West, PGK , on being
elected to serve as Faithful Navigator in the upcoming year.
Matt has been my right-hand man this year, and has done a
phenomenal job in revitalizing our Sir Knights’ Café, among
other things… all this while battling his own physical ailment.
I know that I turn over the Assembly to someone who will keep
the momentum going. I ask all to do what you can to support
Matt and his Faithful Officers as they take over on July 1.
Finally, a personal plea from me to each of you. On
Wednesday, June 21, we will have our annual Pass in Review.
This year, it will be in the school gym at St. Leo the Great in
Fairfax (just across the parking lot from where we meet). I
encourage each of you who can to attend this austere event. We
will be honored to have the District Master and the State
Treasurer-elect in attendance, and will be honoring our newest
Sir Knights, welcoming them into the Assembly. There will be
additional presentations, including the naming of this year’s Sir
Knight of the Year. Details can be found elsewhere in this
edition… please come join us!
SK David J. Todd, Jr., PFN
