I would like to thank everyone who helped make our two fish fries and our bingo sessions afterward a great success.
We had our fifth Sunday on March 29th, we served doughnuts and coffee, and held a honor guard during the 9:00 am mass. Thank you to everyone that helped out.
We will be having a float in the loyalty day parade the last Saturday in April, 4th degree members are encouraged to wear their regalia, and any others not attaining their 4th degree will be welcomed to ride the float in some type of KC attire.
Our state council will be having its annual State convention the last weekend in April which will be held in Green Bay. Anyone who is interested in attending, can contact me for information, time and dates.
One of our brothers from the Somerset council was a guest at our last meeting, he came to promote their annual golf tournament and was looking for more KC participation.
As the fish fry's are in back of us I would like to thank everyone who helped make it a great success. Special thanks to those who started at 8: AM, Jim Olien, Mark Casey, Ron Derrick, Terry Donahue and mid morning help with Jim & Inez Utecht, & Bill Johnson we would not have pulled it off without your help. A big thank you goes out to the fish cooking crew for doing another great job, also for the dining room help and the clean up crew after the fish fry's, it would not be possible without your help. A special thanks goes out to all the people who brought those wonderful desserts they were a great hit as always.I would also like to say a big thank you Jim Brockphaler who donated the potatoes & baked beans. Thanks Jim. We served 319 meals March 20th and 419 meals on March 27. Great job done by all who helped.
