As we enter the last month of the Fraternal year, we want to take this opportunity to say Thank You to all our Texas Knights. You have accomplished so much this year. But we are not done yet! We have the Circle of Honor within our grasp. As of May 24, 2021, we are just 209 new members away from achieving our Membership Goal. We have an opportunity to finish this year strong and lead Texas to #1 in Division 1. Ontario is right behind us, so we cannot let up and let the Canadians catch us. Take advantage of the time left and finish strong.

I’ll be the first to admit that finishing strong and ending on empty is not for the faint of heart. It’s a serious strategy for serious people who want and expect serious results.

By challenging yourself to finish strong, you are pushing yourself beyond any previously imagined comfort zone and performance standard.

Let’s take this momentum right into the next fraternal year.

You have an important decision to make…right now.

As you approach the final month of the fraternal year…you must decide if you are going to finish the year strong or not? Are you going to make Star Council or not?

There is no point in pretending that finishing the year strong does not have the capacity to transform your council’s results and turn a good year into a great one, and perhaps even to save your council from having a bad year altogether.

And while there are plenty of excuses for not finishing strong…there’s no good reason for you to procrastinate, to say you’re not ready or that the timing isn’t right.

Please do not allow your council to get to the end of the year and wonder “what if.”

What if we had given a little bit more this year? What if we had really pushed our council, would things be different? What if, what if, what if.

Jump on the Texas Train and Finish Strong!

Most councils are going to look back on this year and wish they had done more.

But a winner — a true competitor — leaves their all out there every time they compete. And for your council — that means giving your all and Finishing Strong!

We have had a lot of fun Membership Incentives this year, that just required you to recruit to be in the drawings. Here is a list of winners from some of those incentives. Congratulations to those proposers!
