Grand Knight Report
Happy New Year- wow 2020 - who would of ever thought you would see 2020 back in the 70’s, it seemed way too far off and now it’s here. Welcome to a brand new decade hope it doesn't go by as fast as the last one did.
Thanks to everyone who brought food last month for the lunch after the meeting, it was great to see the variety of food we had and what a good time it was. Also a thank you to Mike Sager for the donation of the card table as it gets my old one out of service.
At our December meeting, we donated to each of the five Seminary/Theology students in the Superior Diocese. We also purchased a fundraiser calendar supporting NR Area Ambulance.
Thank you, Troy Schmit, for placing the nativity scene on the hillside at the KC Hall during the Christmas season.
