Grand Knight’s letter October 2018
The summer is over and we start our busy fall. Thou we did end the summer with our annual picnic. We should thank the picnic committee (Tom Raulinavich and Lou McGraw, co-chairs) for the great food, fun and comradery. One fault was the cleanup, brothers to have a great event we must do it all (plan, setup, run and cleanup). This is not the first event I have seen that we have failed to follow thru and cleanup afterward. Let us hope that in the future, we finish a event or project properly. Remember the club is our home and we are responsible for its well being, both inside and out.
This weekend September 29th & 30th, we held a membership drive after each mass at St. Aloysius. The membership drive for St. Veronica is scheduled for October 13th & 14th . The fall “Roses for Life” campaign at both churches is also that weekend.
Our annual “Past Grand Knight” that was scheduled for October 13th, has been rescheduled due to conflicts on the calendar. As soon as the new date is determined we will let you know.
The Charity Gold Scramble is October 20th , all money raised goes to our food baskets that we give at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Your support for this worth while cause is greatly appreciated.
On October 23rd, the council is holding an Admission Degree (1st) Ceremony, come support and welcome our new brothers.
The last two weekends in the St. Aloysius’s bulletin, Fr. Bambrick has written about our responsibility as good Catholics to attend mass on a weekly basis. This is one of the ways in which we support the church and show our activity in the community.
We are still looking for a coordinators for the “Coats for Kids” and “Home for the Holidays” programs. The “Coats for Kids” is program were we collect new and slightly used winter coats and jackets for the local Catholic Charites for kids in the community. The “Home for the Holidays” is to provide service personnel station in the area to get home for Christmas. If you would like to help on either one, please contact me.
