Thank you to the Knights that helped out at St. Mary School this past weekend for their Marathon It and the Fall Festival. We had Knights that helped out at street corners during the Marathon It, helped out during the daytime festivities, enjoyed the roast pork and held Bingo in the church basement.
On September 27th, our hall hosted the Diocesan meeting for officers. The meetings went well and all enjoyed a good lunch too!
We have a ‘tabled’ motion from last month that will be voted on at our next meeting. Our bylaws specify that we cannot spend more than $500.00 without informing all members of the expense. We will be voting to replace our air conditioning units at the hall as one is not working and the 2nd is the same age and will most likely need replacement soon.
Squires: The Squires are still looking for young men to join their ranks. If you have a son or know of a Catholic young man, please encourage them to join. Please contact Kevin Lorentz. The next meeting will be Sunday, November 1st at 5:00 at the KC hall. We will be discussing our upcoming schedule and some possible recreational outings.
Youth Activities: Punt, Pass and Kick competition was held on September 24th. Thank you to Doug Mills for heading this up; Jeff Williams, Phil Mills and Jared Gorka for helping out at this.
Columbus Day Dinner: Our annual Columbus Day Dinner and award banquet is scheduled for Saturday, October 10th. More details about our speakers in the November newsletter.
Bingo: The jackpot continues to grow. The estimate for Sunday, October 11th is over $3,000.00. Many players are expected, so please be sure to help when you can. You can contact Doug Mills with the dates that you are able to be here to help with the games.
