    NEW INCENTIVE TO EARN THE STAR COUNCIL AWARD

    Anew incentive has been announced toencourage councils to earn the Star CouncilAward this fraternal year. If a council earns the Star Council Award (any level) in the 2014-15 fraternal year, it will receive a credit of $4.50 ($3.50 per capita and $1 Catholic Advertising) for each billable member on its roster as of July 1, 2015. Please note that this special Star Council incentive is only offered in insurance territories (United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and Guam.)

    EARN THE STAR DISTRICT AWARD

    District deputies are reminded that this is the lastyear to earn the Star District Award without anycouncil in your district earning the Star Council Award.

    Beginning next fraternal year, in order to earn the Star District Award, your district must attain 100 percent or more of the district membership and insurance net gain quotas AND have at least one council in the district earn the Star Council Award (any level).

    Encourage and assist councils in your district to earn the Star Council Award.

    STATE CONVENTIONS

    Have the councils in your district elected theirdelegates to the state convention? If acouncil would like to submit a resolution to the state council for consideration, have they drafted the resolution, approved it by a vote of council members and sent it to the state secretary? Have councils in your district completed and submitted the proper material for the International Service Program Award to the state program director for consideration?

    Time is quickly running out to complete these tasks.

    APRIL IS SQUIRES MONTH

    The Columbian Squires program marks its 90thbirthday this month. The official youthorganization of the Knights of Columbus was established on April 4, 1925. Urge councils in your district that sponsor Squires circles to celebrate their founding by honoring Squires in a special way. One way to celebrate is for the sponsoring council to invite the 18-year-old Squires to join their council. A special First Degree should be scheduled especially for them.

    DISTRICT DEPUTY SEMIANNUAL REPORT (#944)

    Ensure that you are properly completing andsubmitting the District Deputy SemiannualReport (#944) as we’ve noticed some inconsistencies. For example:

    Inspecting Council Books — The district deputy• is expected to complete this twice a year. Many times, this question is not answered. District Meetings — District deputies are required• to conduct at least two district meetings during the fraternal year — the Organizational Meeting and the Mid-year Membership Meeting. Some district deputies are not conducting any meetings, leaving that question blank and then answering “No” to the question of whether council officers regularly attend district meetings.

    THEME OF THE 2015 NATIONAL MARCH FOR LIFE - “LET LIFE WIN” With the theme “Let Life Win,” thousands of Canadians will be marching for life this year on Thursday, May 14, 2015 in the National March for Life in Ottawa, Canada.

    With over four million Canadian women and their unborn babies hurt or killed by abortion since 1969, the recent decision of the Supreme Court of Canada to legalize physician assisted suicide is one more reason, for Knights to stand up and be counted in this year’s National March for Life!

    For more information about the National March for Life in Ottawa, or to find the date, time and location of a march or rally for life in your province, visit www.marchforlife.ca or call the Campaign Life Coalition at 416-204- 9749 or 800-730-5358.

    One suggestion on how your council can participate, is to charter buses to bring your family, council members, and parishioners to the march. Join the march to make this year’s March for Life bigger than ever! If there is no March for Life planned in your community, your council should organize a local March for Life.

    To order Knights of Columbus “Defend Life” signs to carry in the march, send an email to [email protected] or call 203-752-4403 and provide your name, address, council number, telephone number and the precise number of signs you need in English, French or Spanish.

    Councils will receive full credit for all four required activities in the Culture of Life category for the Columbian Award by:

    - bringing 100 or more Knights, family members, parishioners or students to a march or rally for life;

    - organizing a march or rally for life attended by 100 or more people. CORRECTION TO ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN THE APRIL EDITION OF KNIGHTLINE

    There is a correction to the article titled ‘Help End Hunger In Your Community’ published in the April edition of Knightline. The article, located on page 5, indicates that ‘councils receive a refund of $100 for every $500 or 500 pounds of food contributed to a parish food pantry, community food bank or soup kitchen.’ The article should have stated ‘for every $500 or 1,000 pounds of food contributed.’

    Please make the councils in your district aware of error contained in Knightline and inform them of the correct figures.
