There will not be a council picnic this year. On the other hand we will be having a Columbus Day Dinner in the month of October for a change, more about this later.
We started off the meeting with a first degree ceremony, we had one new candidate. We have a large number of knights who have not attained the 3rd Degree on their journey to full knighthood. I would like all officers to be present at 6 pm as we have a full agenda of topics.
It’s a Girl:
Congratulations to Brother Patrick J Becker and his wife, Sarah, on the birth of their daughter, Lilly Martina, on Sep 20. The proud grandparents are Brother Patrick D. Becker and his wife, Lou Ann. Let’s not forget the proud uncles, Brothers Eric Becker and Kristofer Wallace (Jami).
1st, 2nd and 3rd Degree Exemplification:
Our brothers in Hudson, Council 1762, are hosting all three degrees on Saturday, October 27. It would be a great time to advance your knighthood. Please contact Pat Earley, if interested.
We held the southern portion of the Superior Diocesan Meeting on Sep 16 at our hall. Totally there were approximately 50 people in attendance. I believe we made a few dollars on our hosting of this event. Hopefully we will get the opportunity to host this event again next year.
First Degree Exemplification:
Please join me in welcoming Jake Skramstad as a new Brother Knight.
Fourth Degree Exemplification:
There will be a 4th Degree exemplification on Saturday, Oct 27 in Wisconsin Rapids. Contact Jerry Frey 715-246-4585.

Punt, Pass & Kick and Soccer:
We hosted a local competition for Punt, Pass, & Kick and the Soccer Challenge on Saturday Sep. 15. We had about 2 dozen participants. Let’s give a special thank you to Doug Mills and Rich Lyons for heading up these two events, also many thanks to those who helped out.
Columbus Day Dinner:
We are actually hosting our Columbus Day Dinner in October this year, it will be held on Oct 27. Dinner is at 7 pm, Social at 5 pm or earlier. Please join us for a fabulous dinner for $8.00 per person, you and your guest can’t beat it anywhere. We will be announcing our Family and Knight of the Year at the dinner along with words from our recipients of our Tootsie Roll money.
We provided a 4th Degree Honor Guard at mass Sep 30. As usual we also provided donuts, juice and coffee for the parish in the basement. Thank you to all who helped out on this event.
We will be hosting a pancake and sausage breakfast in the church basement on Nov. 11 to assist in the stewardship drive. We need about a dozen knights to help, please contact me or Jeff Williams.
