It was great seeing all of our DDs, directors, and chairmen at the Summer Meeting in Carmel. What a weekend. Exciting things are happening on the PR and communications front for the Indiana jurisdiction, as well. Hopefully you all saw the ad we ran for Father’s Day in Today’s Catholic. Thanks to Walt Peycha and the Squires along with all the Brother Knights who helped make it a success.
Remember, most K of C events present a great opportunity to recruit and promote. Let your parish and local community know what your council is doing to support and enrich the lives of those around us. With digital media it’s never been easier to document and communicate with local media (newspapers, radio, and television, etc.) through press releases, photos, videos, and social media. Make certain your council has a website…and use it! Certainly each of you has some member of your council who is computer savvy enough to post information online. Please take advantage of their skill and expertise. It’s not enough to simply tell people what we do, we need to show them! Build a presence in your community! Let people know that the Knights of Columbus are about more than just spaghetti dinners and fish fries! And then…PROMOTE, PROMOTE, PROMOTE! Let potential members see what the Knights are about.
