- Blood Drive was held on February 2dn. 31 pints were collected. Thanks to all who made it happen.
- Dave Beckerle spoke about the fish fry and encouraged all to put up signs in your yards and sign up to help where you can. If the only time you can help is already signed up for, come anyway and we can put you to work. As you can see from the sign up sheet help is needed in a variety of areas. Dave mentioned the cost of cod has gone up slightly but the most important thing to pass along to those who you mention the fry to is: Our cod comes directly from either Alaska or the Atlantic. It isn’t sent (as many companies do) to china (small ‘c’ intentional) where it is pumped with water to make it weigh more and taste worse. When this is done the country of origin is china( small ‘c’). Many fry’s use this cod, we are one of the few who don’t. Our country of origin is the US. We have GODS cod.
REMEMBER fish fry’s are Ash Wednesday and all Fridays in Lent except Good Friday. Sign up at: GODS COD
- Chris Nelms mention we have 4 meetings left until he has completed his tenure as GK. We need someone to step up or we won’t have a Grand Knight. Prayerfully consider assisting the council by taking the post. You’ll have so much help from the past GK’s and officers there is almost nothing to do.
Prayers for the Good of the Order, their family member or those no longer with us: Our prayers do make a difference:
