A great big thank you to Past Grand Knight Doug Mills for his past two years of serving us as Grand Knight. A job well done, Doug.
As your new Grand Knight I will try to do my best to keep this council growing and moving forward in our community. I look forward to working with all you members this next two years. Your help is going to be needed to let us grow so please volunteer or step up to the plate when committees are set up.
Hope you all had a great 4th of July– see you Tuesday July 9th for the meeting.
There is a tabled motion and a second to donate $2000.00 for the youth of IC and St Patrick Church's. The youth have been very active helping our council this past year. The most recent activity was the roadside cleanup from Erin Corners to Ready Randy's. The money will help fund their work camp experience and youth retreats.
