We would like to welcome to our council New Richmond native Robert "Bob" Keating, who transferred from Council #11634 Colorado Springs. Bob and his wife Shirley will be relocating to the New Richmond area in the future.
We are planning to have a first degree before our January meeting. If you know anyone looking to join the Knights of Columbus, please contact them and let Al Lingen or myself know if they will be a new candidate.
We had a very nice pot luck after the last meeting, I would like to thank everyone who brought food and made the night a great experience. I do not believe anyone left hungry.
We made donations to two of our seminarians at our last meeting, David Neuschwander and Adam Laski, $500.00 each.
We also gave the Love Baskets program $250.00. I got in contact with one of the organizers and found the Love Baskets program has changed from what I believe most of us were familiar with. They have joined with the Salvation Army and also the toys for tots program. They would like to stop in before one of our meetings and give us more information and answer any questions we may have.
I would like to thank Al Lingen and Terry Palmer for their help with the 5th Sunday coffee and doughnuts.
We will be in need of a chairman for the upcoming free throw contest. It does not take much time and is a very enjoyable activity, please let me know if you are interested in helping out.
Thanks to all who were very prompt in sending dues and raffle tickets to FS Pat Earley. If you haven't yet done so, please forward your $20 dues to Pat at 1453 County Road GG, New Richmond. Raffle tickets and PKD can all be included on one check if you like.
We're off to a fast start with the State Charity Raffle. You may have noticed the 2nd chance drawing is no longer a part of the raffle. This is due to State of Wisconsin rules governing raffles. Please help those in need by buying or selling the 5 tickets included with your December newsletter. For more tickets contact: Pat Earley at 715-808-1795.
Congratulations to Shawn & Kelly Fox, they had a baby boy on December 8th, Noah Michael.
Keep them in your Prayers
Joe and Betty were very active members of our council, contributing so much to our success over the years. Very nice photo of Joe on the Cullen-Crea website. Rest in Peace Joe.
