Keep them in your prayers: Brother George Schmit is fighting cancer; Brothers Don
Schoenherr, Vernon Conrad, Pat Donahue and Deacon Mike Germain have all been ill. Please keep them and their families in your prayers.
Brother Jesse Skramstad, age 48, died Thursday, July 23rd. He always said it was a win-win situation as he would ‘either beat his cancer and spend more time with his family or he would win by going home to be with Jesus’. Jesse became a member of the Knights of Columbus on February 19, 2005 and became a 4th degree on May 19, 2007. His son Jacob is also a member of our council. Prayers to the family of Jesse Skramstad.
John B. Dean has achieved Honorary Life Membership. John became a member on April 25, 1965. He is very active with the Meals on Wheels program. There have been many from he Dean family on our roster since the beginning. John's father Jack was a Grand Knight and Financial Secretary, and his sons Christopher and Michael are both members of our council. Please congratulate John on his 50 years of service!
