At the end of October our council lost two Knights, Brother Les Bauer and Brother Christopher Hunt. Both were long time Knights who I am sure will be welcomed into Heaven with open arms. Thank you to all who came out and attended and participated in the Knights of Columbus Service for Les and Chris. Their families were very grateful for the honor we bestowed upon their loved ones.
Congratulations and thank you to the Ladies Auxiliary for planning and hosting a very successful Family Halloween Costume Party this past Sunday. It was well attended and everyone had a blast, except my father because he didn’t guess the correct amount of pennies in the jar. On the other hand my oldest son was dancing up a storm on the dance floor. Thank you to Ladies Auxiliary President Jeanmarie, her ladies and all that helped to make the event so much fun!
The Deceased Members Mass that was originally scheduled for Saturday November 5th has been rescheduled to Saturday November 12th at 9am at St. Aloysius with coffee and light refreshments to follow in the cafeteria. Please make every effort to attend and show your respect and gratitude to the Knights who have come before us.
Tuesday November 15th the Knights of Columbus Officer team as well as the Columbian Club Officer team will be meeting to discuss the calendar and scheduled events for the second half of the Columbian year. If you have any ideas of events or fundraisers, please see any officer to discuss it at our meeting.
The Annual Thanksgiving Food Baskets will be assembled and delivered on Saturday November 19th. More information about specific times will be communicated soon.
The last monthly blood drive for the 2022 year will take place on Monday November 28, 2022 from 1 to 7pm here at the council. Next year the Blood Drives will take place every two months. Please see Guard Kevin Lamb, the website or Knightline for more information.
The Send a Hero Home raffle and fundraising is currently underway. Tickets are $20 to win a beautiful fire pit package. There are also pins and other various patriotic items for sale. All the proceeds will go to funding the holiday return of military personnel. Please see Past Grand Knight Lou McGraw if you are able to assist in selling tickets.
Saturday November 26 will be Iron Couples Knight. Registration starts at 7, competition starts at 8 and it is only $10 per couple. This has always been a fun night. Please sign up on the bulletin board or contact Steve Stazko if interested.
At the end of the month on Sunday November 27th marks the start of Advent and the celebration of Christmas. As part of the preparation we have canceled the Social Meeting on December 2nd for our Nativity and Christmas Tree lighting.
God bless you and your families!
