I hope that you and your family are all well, and are enjoying all of God's creations.
We are winding down another year and it again was a huge success when you look at the big picture. As far as Membership goes, not making our commitment to meet Supreme's goals is a disappointment for us, BUT bringing 1000 new Catholic gentlemen to the Order is a wonderful thing. Thank you all for what you do in recruiting, but also all the good charitable work.
