We will be changing how people move from one table to the next after each hand, to reduce confusion.
There is no more head table (although you can still use the bell to signal the change-up).
When people pay at the door, they can be issued either a White score card or a Blue score card. The colour of the card indicates how they will move around. So couples could get the same colour if they want to play together all night, or different colours if they want to mix it up.
Be sure before they start that there are two blue and two white cards at each table.
At the end of each hand, those with white cards move clockwise, those with blue cards move counter-clockwise (or whichever direction the host chooses). This will help eliminate playing against the same person several times.
We’ll try this out at the December 18th Euchre and see how it goes.
A big Thank You to Dave Franks for organizing the November Communion Breakfast. It was well attended and we had a great meal at the Queen’s. Thanks also to those who volunteered at the Mass at Immac’s.
John Price brought an issue to our attention regarding Physician Assisted Death, where not only is it possibly coming to our province, but also that the possibility of abuse if very real. To that end, there is a noted speaker from London who is willing to come to Stratford to speak on the dangers this situation brings.
For our part, Assembly 1866 will join with the Council to pay the costs of bringing this speaker in at a future date. Once the date has been confirmed I urge all members to try to attend.
Please remember in your prayers the repose of the souls of Beverley St. Louis, sister to Br. Ken Gaffney and Nicola Pugliese, father-in-law to Br. Joe Potestio and for the families.
Our prayers are requested for the following Knights who are either sick or shut in:
Brothers Gary Birmingham, Clarence White, Father Richard Tremblay, Dan Eybergen, Harry Thomas, Eugene Hagen, Ernie Walsh, Al Grant, Marco Eusebi, Adrian Theijsmeijer, Louis Feryn, Ron Bourque, and Dave Murtha
Also for Theresa Kelly, Debbie Mahood, Fran Culliton, Shirley Reeve, Anne Ryan-Murphy, Henrika Van Beek, Abigail Gregory-Mooney, and Betty Dubrick.
