It is a pleasure and an honor to serve you as Grand Knight of the Father Marcel Salinas Council for the upcoming fraternal year.
First – a big shout out and a huge thanks to Dan Desjardins for leading us to a very successful 2017-2018 – with a possible Star Council status to boot. I’m sure he is delighted to have the “PAST” added to his Grand Knight’s badge. We wish Dan, Elaine and Joseph safe travels as they wend their way across the USA – Griswold style.
This upcoming fraternal year sees the rollout of a simplified program model from Supreme called ‘Faith in Action’. I will be working with the other council officers to understand how the changes will impact our programs and make the necessary adjustments. More information on this new initiative can be found further down this newsletter.
I understand that it is not possible for everyone to attend our monthly business meetings and keep abreast of what is happening in our council. To that end, I have decided to revive the monthly newsletter – of which this is the first edition.

2018-2019 Council Officers:
Officer elections were held over the April and May council meetings. Here is the list of officers for 2018-2019.
Elected Positions:
Grand Knight – David Chapman
Deputy Grand Knight – Gerry Small
Chancellor – Mike Coomer
Recorder – Paul Benner
Treasurer – David Horning
Advocate – Michael Harrington
Warden – Timothy J Lyons
Inside Guard – Joseph Healey
Outside Guard – Ryan De La Torre
Three Year Trustee – Dan Desjardins
Appointed Positions:

One Year Trustee – Ed Malone
Two Year Trustee – Tony Silock
Chaplain – Fr. John Greb
Lecturer – Tony Silock

As promised, here is a breakdown of the new Faith In Action Programs that will be the focus of the councils going forwarded. The seven previous programs have been consolidated into Faith, Community, Family and Life. Most of the programs are the same but relocated under a different program i.e. Free Throw Championship that once was listed under Youth, is now under Community. Each new program category has at least one new program and as I get additional information about those programs I will pass it on. At the July meeting I will ask for Committee chairs.
