Grand Knight Report
Thanks to John Zipperer for taking care of the Free Throw Contest this past weekend. Not as many participants as I was hoping for, but the kids did have fun and there are some very good shooters out there.
We have an Exemplification set up this Sunday February 9th at St. Pat’s after 11:am mass. All you 1st degree Knights are welcome to come out and get your 2nd & 3rd degree it should take about a ½ hour to complete and you will be the first ones to go through the new Exemplification. Please invite family and friends to attend. I am very excited to put this new program into use.
