We started our February meeting with a First Degree; I would like to welcome James Stabe and Don Jackelen to our brotherhood. I would like to thank Al and Mary Jo Lingen for putting on the Bingo Appreciation dinner. It was again a wonderful and delicious dining experience. It is for anyone who has helped with bingo the last year, and is paid for by tips we receive at the bar during our bingo sessions.
Please congratulate Sir Knight Vernon Conrad on achieving Honorary Life status on his 70th birthday, February 4th. Vern joined the Knights on March 28th 1978 and is a Fourth Degree Knight. Vernon attends all of our meetings and helps out whenever possible. Thanks Vernon, for your 38 years of service!
