2. Participation and Service Opportunities (Council Needs for Member Help) 
Let us know if you can help at Spring Fest. If we have enough for the beer stand (as we often do) there are other opportunities to serve as well. This year, we are adding a wheel of chance next to the beer stand, so we will need even more help. If you can help man the stand or the wheel for any period of time, let Tom Rowan know or feel free to just stop by for whatever amount of time you can spare. Or, just bring your family and enjoy the event as a participant with the church community. 
We will also be handing out Marigolds to all mothers (the MaryGold Program) as they leave mass this weekend. We'll pick up the flowers in nursery flats on Friday afternoon and need help repotting them into plastic cups when we get them back to the Hall. Please let Bob Renshaw know (410-592-8406 if you can help on Friday, May 10, at 5 p.m. for the repotting process. Many hands lighten the task and hasten the time so that we can get back to work at the Spring Fling.
On Saturday evening and Sunday morning, we need help distributing the flowers after each mass. It would be great if you remember to wear your name badge but that is not essential. Just drift out after communion so that we don't miss the early departures. This is one of the easiest and most enjoyable activities that we have. It promotes our visibility as Knights and the mothers, both young and old, appreciate being recognized for giving the gift of life. If you would like to speak at a mass during the member Blitz weekend (May 11th and 12th) please let me know (410-592-9718). If you can help in an officer role next year, elections are approaching (Social meeting in May). Let Mike Sallese know. 

3. Our Accomplishments 
I counted twelve Long Green Valley members plus some wives and family at the State Convention May 3-5. It isn't unusual for LGVC to have a big showing in Ocean City. Some of our members are serving a dual role with the State such as Past State Deputy Dick Siejack, Paul Weber assisting the State Deputy, Chuck Bogdanowicz as State Lecturer and Mike Sallese as District 27 Deputy. I, as Grand Knight and Tom Zaegel participated as delegates in the business meetings. Bob Renshaw, Jim Cross, Tom Rowan and John Stansfield also sat in meetings and enjoyed the activities. Chris Phillips and Bob Elliott played in the State Golf tournament (run by Paul Weber) on Thursday along with Tom Zaegel, Tom Rowan, Paul Weber and myself. During the formal Banquet, officiated by State Lecturer Chuck Bogdanowicz, some of us went on a private social outing to Magnolia restaurant in Bethany on Saturday night along with some Brother Knights from Mason Dixon Council in our District. It was a great weekend, though windy on the golf course. I am pleased to say that we received some State awards as well. 
(1) Most notable was 2012-2013 Best Council Website First Place. Note that this award is competed across more than 150 Councils in competition in the State of Maryland. We have the best web site in the State but it is still underutilized. We'll have Bob introduce members to his award winning site and show you how to best use it. 
(2) We received a second place for our Newsletter in Division B (less than 225 members). Well done Mike Sallese, Ted Burns and Bill Davison (editor emeritus) for putting it together this year. A special thanks to all the contributors who provide the content. 
(3) One of our Youth Programs was considered for a Supreme Council Program Award and finished third in that competition among all councils in Maryland. Only the first place winner is submitted to Supreme. 
(4) LGVC again received a Surge with Service award as one of 108 councils that submitted all required reports (i.e. the Homework Award) for the year. 
(5) Our LGVC golfing foursome of Chris Phillips, Tom Rowan, Bob Elliott and Tom Zaegel finished secondin a Captains Choice Format at 9 under par to win a cash prize. 

3. Coming Attractions 
Our annual Ironbirds game will be Saturday, July 6th and includes a buffet, ball game and fireworks, all for $35 per ticket (under 5 free). We committed for 42 tickets. Bring your checkbook to a meeting.

Hall Rentals: 
Consider renting our Council Home for a family get together. 
Contact Grand Knight Joe Wenderoth 410-592-9718 or to talk it over or reserve a date.
