Volunteers Needed – 2019 State Convention

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

Worthy Brothers,
As I mentioned at our last business meeting, we are in need of volunteers for the upcoming State Convention which is being held on April 26th-28th at the North Raleigh Hilton.  As one of the host councils, we will take home a share of the convention profits based on how much assistance we are able to provide as a council. 
I have attached a list of duties and time slots, so please look it over and let me know if you are interested in being involved.  It’s light work and I know you’ll have a good time helping out and getting to know your brother Knights from all across the State.
Thanks and God bless.
Vivat Jesus!
