Subject: [Council 10062 Email] K of C Convention - Congrats to YOUR COUNCIL!!!!

               I wish to express my sincere congratulations and thanks to this unbelievable group of Catholic gentlemen whom I am proud to call BROTHERS.  You have made this council into one of the very best in the state and arguably the nation.
               At the just completed state convention, Council 10062 was awarded the Culture of Life Community Service Award for the 2nd year in a row – thanks to a number of events such as Mother's Day Roses, Justice for All, Donations to Maggie's Place and our help with the parish Right to Life ministries.  We also were awarded the Family Service Award for our work with the Knight's Kids, Boy Scout Eagle projects, for hosting a Squires Circle and other initiatives.
               The Charity Raffle – which was struggling just 2 weeks ago, finished with a huge surge.  Once again, Council 10062 was the number one council in the state.  Thanks to Theron Jackson for heading this committee and for the entire council for exceeding the council goal and more than doubling any other council in the state.
               A special award – the State Deputy's Award was presented to Brother SK Richard Armanini for his incredible success, leadership, persistence and dedication to the State Raffle.  It was stated that under Richard's guiding hands, the raffle has raised more than $1.2 million in just a few years.  Very Well Done Richard.
               As a special note, the 1st Prize trip to Portugal was won on a ticket sold by our Council (pulled from the barrel by Bishop Olmsted).
Vivat Jesus,
