2010-2011 Officer Installation Ceremony – August 28, 2010

Brothers, families and friends of the Knights,

The St. Elizabeth Church council of the Knights of Columbus will be holding our annual Officer Installation Ceremony following the 9am mass on Saturday, August 28th, 2010 at St. Elizabeth Church in Rockville, MD.

The installation is expected to begin about 9:45am and end by 10:15am. Light refreshments will follow.

New officers and select retiring officers are asked to be present for a practice for the installation to be held Friday, August 27th at 6:30pm at the church. We will meet in the church commons. I (the Grand Knight) expect the practice to last no longer than 30 minutes, but it depends on traffic and participation.

Having participated and attended a few other installations, I can tell you the importance of the installation practice. There are few movements, and the ceremony is mostly for us in the council and our families, but it is easily to embarrass ourselves if we misstep or don’t know our timing. So, if you are a new officer, please attend tonight’s practice.


Mike Townsend

Grand Knight
