This email is being sent to all District 1- 4 Grand Knights, District 1- 4 District Deputies and District Wardens, State Officers, Executive Secretary, Director of Operations, Tidewater Regional District Advisor, Tidewater Faithful Navigators and Color Corp Commanders, District Master and State Special Olympics Coordinator.
Worthy Grand Knights,
I am resending this email because several intended recipients did not receive the original email. I apologize if you are receiving this email multiple times.
Special Olympics Virginia ( SOVA) contacted me with another opportunity to support Special Olympics. SOVA is looking for Knights to help serve dinner to the 50 or so athletes and their families at the Spring Hill Suites located at 6350 Newtown Road, Norfolk, VA 23502 on Saturday 11 February 2023. Maybe two or three councils could go together and provide a total of 10- 12 Knights and Ladies to serve dinner. Financial support of the event is not required.
The event is Speed Skating Championship at the Ice Land Skating Rink in in Virginia Beach ( 4915 Broad Street, VA Beach, VA 23462) on Saturday and Sunday 11-12 February 2023. Support at the athletic event is not being requested, but I am sure it would be appreciated.
There will be a small Opening Ceremony the evening of Saturday evening, 11 February 2023, so a Color Guard and Honor Guard are desired. Opening Ceremony time and location to be provided. There will also be a social activity after the Opening Ceremony, possibly BINGO. If we could get one or two councils to provide maybe 8- 10 Knights and Ladies to help with BINGO, it would be appreciated. Due to the small group of athletes, a dance is not expected.
This is another great way to put the State Deputy’s theme ” Serving God by Serving Others” into action. If your council was unable to support the Special Olympics Fall Championship held this past November, maybe this is an opportunity to support the athletes.
Please let Frank and myself know if your council or district is interested in supporting this event.
More information to follow.
