      • Roses for Life: – collected $517 about 1/3 of the norm.  The reduced amount is most likely because of the decreased number of parishioners at masses. 
         
      • Fish fry discussions have begun.  We are considering online ordering with drive up  / curbside delivery.  A reduced menu will be used at least for the first Fry’s.   Meetings will commence shortly.  If you are interested in participating contact Dave Beckerle. (846-4288)

        Fish Fry’s on scheduled beginning Feb17 (Ash Wednesday), 19th and 26th, March 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th.  Please plan on assisting.  We will need more workers since we are doing curbside.

        NOTE;  we are in need of large / tall orange cones to mark the drive up lanes for the fry’s.  If anyone knows someone / or someplace we could get these please let Dave know. (number above) 

      • Nativity Removal: thanks to all who assisted.  We actually had it down and loaded up in an hour.  Much appreciated – Bruce
          
      • Prayers for the Good of the Order have been updated as seen via the link below.  Please contact Bruce Bange (bruce.bange@gmail.com) if anyone needs to be added or removed.  The list is updated at each meeting or more frequently if needed. 
         
      • Dues: There are only 43 brothers who have yet to pay their 2021 dues.  Please get your dues in before the second notices need to be sent out at the end of  next week.  Thanks to all who have paid.

        If you have any questions or if you are experiencing any financial distress please contact Bruce Bange and arrangements can be worked out.  Any conversations held will be strictly between the caller and Bruce.  There are a lot of health / job issues obviously happening and we don’t want your membership as a Knight to be affected so if you are having any issues please let me know.

        If your address, Phone or email changes, please notify me so I can change our records (Bruce)

      • Blood Drive – 48 pints were donated on the December Blood Drive.  A record going back as far as 2011.
         
      • Ed Murphy spoke about the need to assist the Meet Life campaign where ultrasound machines were purchased throughout the state to show to expectant mothers.  The machines are now in need of repair.  Approximately $300,000 is needed.
