Our council would like to congratulate our brother Chris Treichel on his election to serve as the new Grand Knight for council 5495. Past Grand Knight Michael Myers will serve as trustee and advise him in his role. Much remains the same for us at the parish, one of the few that remained covid-restricted, although with the kitchen reopening we should soon be having our breakfasts and events in Unity Place again. I hope you’re looking forward to that, it will be nice to see everyone again after our masses.
PGK Michael Myers
Things have been slow going for us here this year as our activities are still limited. We are once again able to conduct our meetings in the parish hall and have some events planned, including Keep Christ in Christmas posters and the free throw competition, Deputy Grand Knight Chris Treichel is putting those together. Knights drive foodstuffs over to Discover Burien at Sunnydale for their charity meals, and have been making collections at masses for things such as hurricane relief and help to Haiti. Our charitable focus this year is RSVP (seminarian support) which is an annual program, and the Cor Christi fund for the new McGivney center in Spokane at Bishop White. We are planning on holding a digital fundraiser as of now.
Our council is currently presenting a resolution to accept a merger of the dormant St. Bernadette council in White Center back into ours. This should be taking place soon, and any members there are welcome to join ours.
The photo above is Grand Knight Michael Myers accepting a plaque with the Columbian and Founder’s Award for the 2019 (pre-covid) fraternal year from District Deputy Paul Morel. A slight delay, but GK is still proud to receive it. Note the Kraken gear. Go Kraken!
We are looking forward to whatever God has planned for our council this year even if it may not be much. Stay tuned as our events come back.
