State Deputy Patrick Winchester's Message
September 2015

The final tallies for Star Councils for the 2014-2015 Fraternal Year are finally in!  While our Insurance Agents in Kansas did a bang up good job this last year (don’t they always?), your recruiting efforts and timely completion of the three required forms (Forms, 365, 1728, and SP-7) provided for 45 Star Councils!  This exceeded the Supreme Goal of 39 and met our State Membership Director Bob Duffin’s goal of 45!  Once again, thank you for a great job!

That said, we are now in the 2015-2016 Fraternal Year, and it is time to move on. Your Council should have had a representative at the District/Regional Meeting in your area and your Council should have gotten copies of the Official State Directory, the Programming and Membership Guide, Fraternal Success Planners, the necessary forms, books, DVD’s, CD-ROM’s, and everything and anything else you will need to insure your Council’s success.  If you still have not gotten this information, please call your District Deputy.  If you can’t get a hold of him, email me (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)) and I will help you.  I am also in the Directory:  Both this year’s and last year’s!

In the Beginning….........

Week 23 = “I have fine hair all over my body that is there to protect my skin. I’m a little thin at this point but am putting on more baby fat. My eyes are formed, but the iris does not have color – I’d like brown eyes!” Chris will lose all this body hair before birth. Chris now weighs over a pound and is about a foot long. 50 years ago, if the baby was born at this age, the child could not have survived. But today, with modern technology, babies born at this age have a fighting chance (about 50%) of survival.

“Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:30-31
