Both loans are 2.75% fixed for 30 years. The first loan is for Delaney Council: $50,400 and the second is for 5983 Corp: $19,800. The combine loan is $70,200 with a monthly payment of $286.00. This will be the only agenda item for the Special Corporation meeting.
The meeting will be held live at the council with seating limited to 50 Brothers, forehead temperatures will be scanned at the door and masks are required at all times. There will be No Repast or Bar service at this time due to the CDC guidelines.

2020-2021 BUDGET

Brothers,

The 2020-21 Columbian Year budget was extremely difficult to produce because of the significant reduction in rental revenues due to COVID-19. As a result the Budget Committee consisting of the Corporation President, Financial Secretary, Treasurer, Council Accountant, the three Trustees and the DGK have had to make difficult decisions and significant cuts.

This budget is based on an estimated 30% reduction in rental and bar service revenue. The following cuts are proposed:

The discretionary Charity budget is $0. However, there is budgeted funds for the RSVP- $1000, Blue Mass- $100, Memorial Mass- $150, Life Center- $300 and Birthright- $200.

No funds are budgeted for the Installation of Officers repast (it will be a pot luck).

There is no subsidy for the PGK Testimonial.

The Knight of Recognition will be held during a regular Social meeting.

The three Youth scholarships are reduced by 50% for 2021 only.

The Knight Light will be published online and email for 2021 only.

There are no calling posts except for wake service announcements for 2021 only (all other a nouncements are email).

Cancel Cablevision and purchase ROKU and HULU Sports package (YES and NFL are still available).

Income         Expenses     Net

$161,926        (-$171,285)    (-$9,359)

With the proposed cuts the budget deficit has been reduced from (-$20,500) to (-$9,359). The Budget Committee unanimously recommend approval. The Budget Committee further recommends that the budget be reviewed in early October and amended if necessary.

Brother and Sisters in
CHRIST

One of the greatest tools the evil one has is disunity. The more he can separate us from one another and from our church, the easier it is for him to keep us away from our LORD.

Now more than ever in these trying times we need to keep PRAYING.

We a people of FAITH now have a choice to make, do we give in to fear and panic or do we TRUST in out LORD that we will get through this.

We cannot be physically together, but thanks to the Delaney KNIGHTS of Columbus setting up this zoom account  we can still pray together.

I am inviting all of you, your family and any of your friends, from your own home to join me this and EVERY Thursday night at 7:30pm  for the Months of April & May
As we pray together and reflect on this Sundays Gospel message.

The choice is yours
Just like this image up top of the three men on the crosses

  • One was willing to take on all the sham and pain of the cross, and turn it in to a symbol of salvation. To save us from our sinful nature
  • One seen Jesus and could and would not accept him
  • The other seen that this was the savior of the world

We need to now be like that repentant thief, to trust in our LORD at this time.

Deacon Chris
