Membership Director's Report

I hope to find our Delaney members and families well as we continue to battle through the health crisis with brighter days surely ahead. As our council has continued to persevere with the good works of our Order, it has been a big help that many of our new/newer members have been making a difference with getting involved in the programs/business of the council, it is great to have more brothers involved and it is notably appreciated. Let us all continue to tell our family and friends about the great things we do at Delaney Council and not forget how we were brought into the order, we were asked, please ask someone to join us. A Blessed Lent and Happy Saint Patrick's Day to my Delaney Family.
