A reminder: our meeting this month will start with our annual Eulogy Mass.
Welcome to our newest member; Bob Slater. He is transferring in from the Bloomington, MN council. Troy Schmit contacted the public schools and I contacted St. Mary school and they responded that they don’t need any coats for kids. We will not be ordering any coats.
Please read through this newsletter and take note of all the Council Activities that are coming up and be ready to step up as a chairman or to lend a helping hand.
I appreciate those of you who have let me know your email address. With each new address, our cost to send out the monthly newsletter goes down – Thank You!
Sentiments for Seminarians: November is the month we collect items for our Seminarians. So please bring any items for our seminarians to the meeting.

Bingo: Here are the dates for KC Bingo for the month of November: 11/06, 11/13, 11/20, 11/25 (last Friday), and 11/27.

What a better way to contribute to help our council raise money for the many causes that we support and its easy work
