Grand Knight Report
I would like to welcome our newest member Bradley Johnson who took the new Knighthood Degree at St. Patrick’s of Erin on February 9th. Also receiving the new degree for full Knighthood were Mark Griffen, Dennis Mitchell, Kevin Effertz, Mark Flatten, Karl McIntire, Chris Rud, John Linneman, Steve Anderson, & Mike Peterson. Thanks to all who participated in the new Exemplification as for the first one done in our council it went very well and was well received by the people who attended.
Coming up are the two fish fries: March 27th & April 3rd . We are going to need plenty of help as we will also be having Bingo starting at 7:00pm. Bill will need helpers starting Friday mornings at 8:00 am prepping the food and getting the dining room set up. Then we will need workers to help serve the food and the most important job of clean up afterwards. So please volunteer to help out at this great event. Also needed are those great desserts that seem to show up every year. It would not be a successful fish fry without the variety we have.
There will be a Euchre Tournament for Districts 81 & 82 at our KC Hall on Sunday March 22nd
Registration is at 12:00 noon. Play starts at12:30 pm you must be a KC member to participate. Entry fee is $5.00. A lunch will be served after the tournament. Any questions contact Troy Schmit 417-309-3875 or Don Schoenherr 715-781-3209
