Greetings Brothers, 

Following up to last Month, it is not too late. Fall and Halloween are just around the corner.  If you don't have a Family activity planned…  Now would be a great time to start planning something for the Fall.  It could be a simple Family Halloween Party at the Church.  You could also look into having a hayride and/or bonfire at the Parish or a member's house.  

These kinds of activities are also great for attracting those "Younger Family Guys" that may be looking to join the Council.  It can either be open to the entire Parish, or by invitation.  Regardless of how you get the non-member families to attend, you need to be sure to have key members welcome them.  This will open up a one-on-one dialogue that you will never get at a membership drive.  And besides that - they are FUN!

It is also time to start planning for a CHRISTMAS event.  A Christmas event is another great time for a family event.  A few good ideas to include: Collect gifts for local children charity, School, Parish, or Gibault; Have Santa make an appearance; Ask your Chaplain/Priest read/tell a Religious based store; Cookie contest; Have it planned to follow Saturday evening Mass and include some type of dinner, pitch-in or whatever.

With the start of a new year and there are a few changes at Supreme in regards to the Family of the Month reporting process.  Supreme will only count one entry for each month.  They will no longer identify entries from past months.  When I get the Supreme report, it may not show me all of your entries.  To be sure that all entries are counted by the State, please forward a copy of Form 1993A to my Indiana State Family mail box, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  I will receive these and record them for your councils (including the late submissions).

Here are the Supreme Family of the Month winners for Indiana in August:  1548 Bernie Fallon    and   8052 David Baker

Vivat Jesus!
