I would like to thank the council for allowing me to attend the 114th Annual Convention. We have a new State Deputy, Robert W. Fox. The new State Warden is Walter K. Winkle, Jr.
The convention started out with a Mass said By Arch Bishop Vigneron. There were Forty-four Color Corp to lead in the seven Bishops and the many priest that attended the convention. It was beautiful to see and attend. There was a daily Mass said every morning at 7:30AM and the presider would be one of the Bishops. I had the honor of carrying the candle for the last day of the convention.
I was also asked to be on the State Wardens Committee which consisted of setting up the hall and verifying everyone’s credentials before the daily meetings. I did not get an actual count of how many attended but it had to be above 1,200 delegates. It took forty-five minutes to cast and count a vote.
Everything went well for the convention the weather was beautiful, cool but comfortable. The highs were in the mid 60’s and the skies clear.
Some councils donated baskets of goods for the ladies to raffle off on the last day. There were baskets of “Frozen” items that our DD brought and there were Coach bags, Tool baskets, Vacations, etc. there were at least 100 items for raffle. You would buy a strip of tickets and place your ticket in the can in front of the item you wanted to win. They made over $20,000 on ticket sales and with sponsors that would double the amount, the final tally was $73,000 for Holy Cross. OUTSTANDING!!!
I want to take this time to thank all of my Brother Knights for helping me make this a great year for St Nicholas Council. We have made a good start and I want to continue this progress in the coming year.

Our Administrative Year is coming to an end, nominations for Officers have been made, and our next years leaders are standing in the wings. Each 3rd Degree member has the opportunity to run for office, and become a leader in the Knights Of Columbus, is this you , are you ready to step up, give it some serious thought, because the growth of our Council not only hinges on new members, but involvement in the process, such as new leadership , new ideas, and sometimes new direction. Nominations are still open, and will take place at the June meeting , along with the election of new officers, keep an open mind.
The Convention on Mackinaw Island like always was an event, and this year was an election year , and politicing was taking place. The office that three Brother Knights were politicking for was the Warden position , and after two votes, Walter Winkle was elected to the position, he is the current State Director of Special Olympics, from the Detroit Diocese. Each of the other State Offices were filled by each existing State Officer moving up in the ranks.
Also keep in mind that the summer months will be taking some of us away on some much needed vacation time or golf outings, but the council will continue to grow and function and your involvement will make that happen.
