I invite you to attend one of the three upcoming summer meetings. You will get first-hand knowledge of programs and training offered throughout the state and the Order. Grand Knights, Financial Secretaries, and District Deputies are expected to attend at least one meeting. Other members and officers are encouraged to attend a meeting. The more who hear the message, the better it is for your council, the district and the state.
The summer meetings will be held: June 24th in York;
July 22nd in Fort Fairfield; and
July 23rd in Belfast.
Details will be provided to you once you have indicated which meeting you plan to attend. For planning purposes, please provide information to the Executive Secretary Raymond Sargent. You can send your response no later than June 8th by mail (116 Farview Drive, Sanford 04073), by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), or by phone ((207) 324-7589 or (207) 651-6636).

At the 135th Supreme Convention in St. Louis, Missouri held on 01 – 03 August, a historic announcement was made by Supreme Knight Carl Anderson: the introduction of the new uniform of the Fourth Degree. After careful consideration, the Board of Directors took this action motivated by the best interests of the Order as a whole and of the Fourth Degree in particular.
The new uniform is part of a comprehensive and necessary effort to keep our Order relevant and attractive to men, particularly younger men. In light of this significant change, I thought it would be helpful to address some of the questions that have been asked about the new uniform.

Worthy State Deputies and fellow Classmates –
Thank you so much for the many of you who have reached out to Texas with prayers and offers of support. We greatly appreciate the spirit of fraternal charity which drives us all to respond to the needs of Knights, their families and communities. Know that we are also working closely with Supreme which has been very proactive in working to anticipate the needs we know are coming.
Like several other states, Texas has an active and experienced Disaster Response team. The most immediate need is for funds to assist with shelter operations, daily food and relief for rescue and recovery workers and volunteers, and then eventually for direct relief of the most pressing of uninsured losses. Progress can be monitored at our website homepage at www.tkofc.org and also at the Order’s Supreme website at www.kofc.org
Donations may be made to our Disaster Relief Fund at https://www.tkofc.org/fundrai sing/project/disaster-relief- fund or may be mailed to our State Council office at 6633 Hwy 290 East, Suite 204 Austin, TX 78723.
Please continue to pray for all those affected by the storm, those with significant losses, and those who will volunteer to assist in recovery. The flooding in the Houston area and others is some of the worst in our history. God bless them all.
Vivat Jesus! Viva Cristo Rey!
