Dear Brother Knights & Ladies:
What can I say, our summer has gone by so quickly. Thanks to all the brothers who participated in our activities over the summer; The Community Meal in June chaired by Jim Kelly, Barbequing for the Parish Swim/Picnic, and the closing of The Bible Camp. Barbequing for these events was easier using the BBQ lent from St. Mike’s high school, much appreciated. We also provided some pallbearers for a deceased parishioner’s mass of resurrection.
As mentioned on previous occasions it’s the same few brothers who organize & work at our various council events. These brothers need your help. Don’t wait to be approached, volunteer for one of our many activities. If you are approached consider this as an opportunity to get involved, the reason you joined the Knight’s. If other commitments prevent you from a requested activity say not now but I can help out at other functions. Our weekly Thursday Breakfasts are back starting Sept 8th 8:30AM at Immaculate Conception Church. Talk to your group at morning coffee about coming out to support this event.
In September we will look at making our final payment towards our $50,000 pledge to St. Joseph’s Restoration Fund. We have been approached to make a pledge towards the cost of a window restoration. Before we commit we need ideas on how we can fund this project. We can do another Walk-A-Thon but that will only get us part way. Need some new ideas. Would you be willing to be on a committee? I know this GK message brings up the same old things, but stop and think why you are a Brother Knight. Also try to come out to our monthly council meetings, meet some of your fellow Knight’s.
Your Grand Knight
John J. Price
