My Brother Knights:
Dear Brother Virginia Knights and your Families,
Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks, as well as sharing our generosity, love and faith with family and friends. During this season let us remember those that are not able to share this special day with family. The widow or widower down the block, the first responder waiting for the emergency call and most importantly, our service members deployed throughout the world. Take some time this holiday to share your blessing with those less fortunate. Make a family commitment to help those that need our assistance and encouragement.
