 get each new Knight involved.
 Well that should summarize how to conduct an effective membership recruitment blitz.
 All that remains is for you to put it into action. Remember that taking action is the key

  The pastor was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to ask the congregation to come up with more money than they
  were expecting for repairs to the church building. Therefore, he was annoyed to find that the regular organist was sick and a sub-
  stitute had been brought in at the last minute. The substitute wanted to know what to play.
  "Here's a copy of the service," he said impatiently. "But, you'll have to think of something to play after I make the announcement
  about the finances."
  After the homily, the pastor paused and said, "We are in great difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected and we
  need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up."
  At that moment, the substitute organist played "The Star Spangled Banner."
  And that is how the substitute became the regular organist!
