We are planning a first degree before our next meeting. If you know of any Catholic gentleman who is not a current brother, please take a minute and ask him to join our brotherhood.
We are planning a bingo appreciation dinner tentatively the 15th of February. Al Lingen is chairing this event and we are anticipating another incredible meal as always. If you have helped out with bingo this past year, you are invited to bring your wife or significant other and enjoy.
Our free throw contest is set for this coming weekend Sunday the 8th @ 12:30. If you have some time please come and help with this event for our youth.
We were presented with a list of items needed by the CF department, we were able to help out with many of them as we donated $500.00 to the Christian formation department.
The council also decided to make a donation to St. Mary’s Mardi Gras fundraiser of 2 each of (4) fish fry dinners & (2) raffle tickets.
John Jarchow was the big winner of our bingo jackpot the last Friday of the month. John won over $1,200.00, be sure to congratulate him.
Thanks to all who were very prompt in sending dues and raffle tickets to FS Pat Earley. If you haven't yet done so, please forward your $20 dues to Pat at 1453 County Road GG, New Richmond. Raffle tickets and PKD can all be included on one check if you like.
Bingo is the major money maker for our council; we will need help on Sunday nights and the last Friday night of each month. We would also love to see you and your families show up and try to win some of the big money we give out every session. Please let Doug Mills know what night you can help.
Fish Fry We set the dates for our annual fish fry’s. They will be held on March 20th and 27th. We will be in need of as many members as we can get to help with the two Friday nights. Please help if you can. We will also need volunteers to bring in desserts during the day on Friday.
