to the difficulty caused by the restrictions of the Covid19
Virus, it has been quite difficult to conduct meetings with
the membership. We have tried to keep everyone up to
date but this has not been a very successful
arrangement. The executive had placed e-mail notices
wherever possible, including a message asking for members to
show their interest in serving on this coming year's
executive. Little interest was expressed, so when we
had collected enough names for each position, we made an
executive decision to acclaim those interested in serving on
your new executive. This is not the usual way things
are done but, under the circumstances, we felt that this was
the best way to carry on under the good of the order and
continue to serve the assembly. We hope you will agree
with our decision, and hope and pray that we all will
survive these trying days. Please consider we still need
your help and guidance to continue with our goals and
beliefs as Knights of Columbus. Thanks to those
Knights who did volunteer their services we hope to carry on
to the best of our abilities.
DURING THIS PANDEMIC THERE ARE MANY THINGS TO BE THANKFUL
FOR. LET US COUNT OUR BLESSINGS AND SHARE WITH OUR
BROTHERS AND SISTERS THE TIDINGS OF GOOD WILL TOWARDS ALL.

This light jacket merges wind- and water-resisting performance with a silky-smooth hand. This unlined piece is easy to wear over base or thermal layers. The shell is 100% polyester and there is a cadet collar with a chin guard. The sleeves are set-in and there is elastic binding at the cuffs and hem. There are two open pockets in the front. It is available in several colours ( Red, Dark Blue, Black, Light Blue} with the Emblem of the Fourth Degree Emblem on the left chest; your assembly name and number will be embroidered around the Emblem.
Optional individual name personalization is available at additional charge.
Please allow 30 business days for your custom order to be produced.
Suggestions re Jackets:
1. As these prices are not official and as we all know Supreme charges delivery plus an exchange rate that varies, we must be careful what we charge* and all orders must be paid in advance.
2. There is a formal order form that must be used for each submission per member that comes from Supreme office. (http://www.knightsgear.com/sport-tek-full-zip-personalized) fill it out and give to comptroller
3. Seeing as how this must be processed by Supreme, the executive have decided if you wish to purchase, we will have the Faithful Comptroller place the order so that the assembly will be charged for the order and the exact cost and any differences in amount + or – be charged/refunded to the member before handing over the jacket.
4. As to the choice of jacket, if we order the unlined version, I recommend we order one size larger to enable us to wear a sweater under it spring and fall but it can still be wearable in the summer.
5. If we choose the heavier version then we can’t wear it in mild weather, but we could consider T-shirts as an option.
Please contact the FN with your thoughts on the subject. eg> should we standardize on colour?
Lets have your input by next meet which will be in March as our regular date is Shrove Tuesday in February, and the hall cannot be used,
