Thanks to you, Texas has had a good year so far, but we still have work to do by June 30th. Our Membership Intake currently has us #1 in division 1, but Michigan has been on our tail and briefly caught us for a few days in April. Texas exceeded our Circle of Honor Membership Goal on April 24th. A few weeks later we exceeded our Pinnacle Goal on May 16th, which is the third time in history the Texas State Council has achieved this honor. However, Membership Intake alone does not get us the award. We must attain our required amount of Fraternal Benefit Events, or we could miss out on this prestigious award. The General Agents and Field Agents will work with councils that still need an FBE, as long as we can get a minimum of 7 individuals required to attend. Please do what you can to make this happen. We have attained all other requirements needed. We have around 39 councils that have reached the Star Council status already with a month to go. We do not want to quit recruiting, even if your council has reached its goal, as your Diocese may still be below its annual goal for the year, plus other Catholic Gentlemen need what the Knights have to offer. Texas has done a good job in Charities, and we have exceeded last year’s numbers on American Wheelchair Mission. We have had successful Programs, including some State winners that have been sent to Supreme to be judged. Thank you again for your hard work for the past 11 months.
