Our council hosted the annual officers’ installation on the 20th of August. In attendance were the councils from District 81 and 88. The officers were installed by 2 former District Deputies as Mike Fraise’s father had just passed away. A delicious meal was then enjoyed by all.
Our council again sent a team to Somerset’s annual golf tournament. The results were not what we had hoped for: Prescott took the paddle!
This past weekend, our council hosted coffee and doughnuts at IC for the 5th Sunday. Thanks to Terry Palmer and Louie Dabruzzi for their help with this.
Don’t forget: there is an upcoming “Knight in a Day” on Saturday, October 3rd in Menomonie at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church/School. This would be a wonderful way to be ready for the upcoming 4th Degree Exemplification here in New Richmond on October 17th.
