As the Columbian Year draws to a close, it is appropriate to reflect on the state of our Council and to set goals for the future. We will soon embark upon the 2007-08 Columbian Year, and our transitional period has come to an end. As I have stated previously in this space, the future is yours. We will be whatever you, the membership, want us to be. For obvious reasons, the summer is traditionally a slow time for Council activity. This does not mean that activity need be nonexistent. We are in search of activities, or even a single activity, to light the flame of fraternalism during the dog days. If you have any ideas, do not hesitate to share them. Your Council will be grateful.
I have written before of the exciting years ahead. Let us renew our commitment to seizing this opportunity and mining every bit of potential our membership has to offer. I hope to see you at our Council elections on the night of June 28th at .
I wish a safe and happy summer to you and your family.
Christopher C. Farley
