The St Mary’s School Golf Tournament was a huge success raising over $20,000 for the school. There were 36 teams in all that participated. The Knight of Columbus team of Jeff Williams, Phillip Mills, Sam Strachan and Mark Williams place 3rd at minus 14 on the day. There was only a three stroke difference between 1st and 3rd Place. Mike Peterson and I manned the 4th hole KC booth. Thank you, Mike, for your help.
The new Bingo equipment will be arriving in the near future. The Bingo crew is getting excited to get this up and running for the 2018 fall start of Progressive Bingo.
There is a need to have a Brother Knight head up the Punt, Pass and Kick and Soccer Challenge that will be held again this year in conjunction with Corn Fest. Let me know if you are interested and I will assist you in the process.
