State Charity Raffle Report
The Charity Raffle drawing was held as scheduled on May 2, 2020. The closest winners were in Somerset & Hudson. Thanks to all who purchased or sold tickets for our council. Our Council sold 886 tickets. This is slightly below our goal, but without selling tickets during two fish fries, and bingo for many weeks, I think we did great. Special recognition to Don Schoenherr, who sold 109 tickets and led our ticket sales once again. Thanks also to Pat Becker-80 tickets, Shawn Fox-39 tickets, Dean Mergen & Steve Crosby both bought/sold many tickets as well. The full list of winners is attached to this email in PDF form.
Supreme will be holding Exemplification’s Thursday May 14th 6:pm & 9:pm. Also Sunday May 17th at 6:00 pm & 9:00 pm. This is a very easy way to be able to join the Knights so please get out and recruit some new members. Exemplification will be online. Please get to me your candidates name, address, & telephone number ASAP so I can get the information forwarded to Supreme and the information back to the candidate. If anyone that is first degree now would like to receive full Knighthood now is a perfect time to get your 2nd & 3rd degree taken care of. Please invite family and friends to attend the ceremony. I know you will be impressed. Also please recruit a new member.
Happy 90th Birthday to John Mortensen who will be celebrating on May 24th if you would like to mail a card to John his address is 324 Meridian Drive New Richmond 54017. His big party which was planned at the KC hall has been canceled.
