Council Meeting
Thursday, Dec. 13, 7:00 PM

Blessings Brothers,

My contribution this month will be brief. My wife, Carol, and I just returned from sunny AND warm Florida a few days ago. Back to the real world!

Mostly what I have to say this month is Thank You to everyone who has helped carry on for the two months I have been away. Special thanks to Matt Carlton for filling in as GK, to Denny Chandonnet for all your help with many things, to Pat Galla for counsel to me, to Steve Techma for hall help, the Building Association for helping with St Francis, and everyone else who has helped with various activities who are very important as well.

A couple of things we took on this month. We put on a meal for the St Francis dedication ceremony of the new edition. Bishop David Walkowiak was in attendance for blessing the new edition. There were approximately 200 people in attendance.

Another event we cooked, was a veteran’s brunch. There were about 60 veterans and family members. We were helped in serving the brunch by the St Francis youth group.

Watch for future emails and calendar items. Also, our annual dues statements will be going out soon. Please get your dues paid for 2019. That money helps in making events like the above possible. Remember the first principle of the Knights, Charity. We need your help to continue our charitable activities. Many hands make light the work.

Duff Pizza Night!

We would like to say Thank You to Sue Duff and her family for organizing and hosting the Duff Firehouse Pizza party on Friday, November 9th. The fabulous pizza cooking skills of Pete and Brian Duff did not go unnoticed. The pizzas were crispy and delicious. People are still talking about how awesome the night was and what a great time they had. Thank you to all the volunteers who did the prep work to serving the pizzas. Thanks, Duffs for a fantastic evening.

Dobry Obiad (Good Dinner)

Polish Dinner

The Tejchma Family put on another great Polish Dinner on Sunday, October 28th. What a delicious Sunday meal that was well attended. Everyone had a great time eating, laughing, and visiting with the others. To all the volunteers…Thank you so much for all the hard work and help. Great Job!

Ladies Night at the Hall:

The Ladies Night last November was a total success. The women that night collected a total of $960.00 for the Kids Food Basket.

In addition, one item donated was a dinner for eight prepared in your home by Chef Gavin Alm. The dinner raffle was drawn at the Wednesday at the Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner. The lucky winner was Phil Snead. He will enjoy at dinner for eight, prepared in his home by Chef Gavin Alm. Thank you to all who took part in making this event worthwhile!

All in all that made for a donation to the Kids Food Basket of $1960.00. Again, thank you to all who supported this event.
