Brother Knights,

I hope you remember my speaking with you about representing our Council by volunteering at the Special Olympics Summer Games. I hope you have given it serious thought and consideration. The event I hope you join us for is the bowling competition awards ceremonies. The bowling awards are scheduled for Sunday, June 5th at Buffaloe Lanes, Cary (151 High House Rd). Ceremonies will take place from roughly 10:30 AM until 3:30 PM. Special Olympics of North Carolina will provide lunches, and t-shirts for all volunteers to keep. I will be leading the awards ceremonies and directing the Awards Team. We will work together in putting together the awards and presenting them to the athletes. Here is a video of an individual awards presentation for you to view, if interested. Of course, this team of volunteers is from a military institution. We will not be so formal.

Special Olympics staff would also like to provide training for the Awards Assistant volunteers prior to the event so that we all will be familiar with the process and will know what to expect. They suggest that we take about 30 minutes prior to our next meeting on May 12, if this is satisfactory.

I can tell you from personal experience that when you leave at the end of the day, you will be tired. But you will also be full of joy and satisfaction. I guarantee that you will not regret the time and energy spent. Please check your calendars and simply reply to this e-mail as soon as possible if you are able to assist. Include your t-shirt size so we can order the shirts. Also, if you know of anyone else that wishes to volunteer, include their names, e-mail addresses and t-shirt sizes. Family members are welcome, and anyone 18 years of age or older can volunteer. We need 12 volunteers to confirm their participation and so far, we have 2. Please help Council 11234 make a good showing! Thank you.

Yours in Christ,

Joe Csuka
