Youth Activities: Knight of Columbus free throw competition will be held on Sunday February 7th at 12:00 with the District level to be held immediately after around 1:00. Please let Doug Mills know if you would be able to help out. We could use 6 or 7 people to help with registration, tallying shots etc.
Bingo: After a slow start in January with a couple sessions being canceled because of a lack of players the pot is starting to grow. So please contact Doug Mills with the dates that you are able to help with the games or come and play. February 14th we are having the bingo workers appreciation dinner starting at 2:00, so if you have helped at bingo since the last dinner and you would like to attend with your wife or significant other please call Alan Lingen 715-781-0095

Fish Fry: We have set the dates for our annual fish fries. They are March 11 & 25th. We will be in need of as many members as we can get to help with these two Fridays. We also would appreciate any and all desserts brought in during these two days.
Keep them in your prayers:
Please keep praying for our Brother Knight Don Schoenherr and his family. Also I received this too late to get it into last month’s newsletter but please keep Charles Jacoby and his family in your thoughts and prayers as he lost his wife of 67 years on Dec. 20. Charles has been a 3rd degree member since1958.
