Hello Everyone!

I am writing to you all for a final time as Grand Knight of JMU Council 9286. First off, I would like to thank everyone who has supported us through many prayers and donations. Without so much support we would not accomplish any of our goals. Secondly, I want to say how proud I am of everyone who has helped this council get to where it is. We established monthly in-house retreats for men who want to grow in their faith and brotherhood. It has been a great way to not only grow in faith but also bring a diverse group of guys together, even those who don’t share in our faith.

As always, we hosted very fun socials for everyone in the Knights and Catholic Campus Ministry communities. We held the our first ever fall cookout, which involved me grilling very delicious burgers. Those will be big shoes for my successor to fill. On a more serious note, I could not be more proud with how successful our fundraiser for AVA Care was. We raised $2000 for a new ultrasound machine for AVA Care and along with Blessed Sacrament Council 9488 we raised about $14,000. This provided a new and much needed ultrasound machine for the pregnancy center, which mainly assists women with at-risk pregnancies in the Harrisonburg community.

Finally I wish my successor, Kevin O’Connor, the very best of luck leading this council in the 2015-2016 fraternal year. I have gotten to know him very well as my right hand man during his time as Deputy Grand Knight and I know there is no one who could lead this council better. I am very excited to see how this council grows in the next year.

God Bless,

Thomas Beauchamp
