State Deputy Vincent Melvin III's Message
August 2017

We are already one full month into the 2017-2018 Fraternal Year!  The State Officers, Directors and Chairmen have developed an Action Plan to insure the success of the Order in Kansas.  The District Deputies have been and installed and have had their weekend of training.  The Grand Knights and important Council Officers, Directors and Chairmen have all attended the Regional District Meetings.  Directories, Program and Membership Guide, forms, charts, pamphlets and information have all been distributed and shared.  Now, it is time to put all this to work to achieve the sort of success that I know that each Council in Kansas is capable of!
