Dear Brother Knights & Ladies:
I am sure by now everyone knows that a member of our council was ordained to the Priesthood on May 6, 2017. Congratulations to Fr. Ross Campbell for your vocation to the priesthood which will benefit so many individuals.
My term as this councils Grand Knight is coming to an end and I wish to thank everyone for their guidance and support. Also to my wife Donna for her patience and understanding.
I also thank our Grand Knight elect Ken Gaffney for accepting his nomination, as well as the other new members of the Executive that accepted their nominations.
Br. Martin Switzer recently obtained his 2nd & 3rd Degrees. Andrew Fraiser who just moved into the area recently received his 1st degree and we also have 4 transfers into our council Andrew Crowley, Dave Crowley, Cory James Wege and Ron Bokkers.
Our next large fundraiser is the annual Steak BBQ on Thursday June 8th. Format same as previous years, Tickets are same $ 20.00. Your attendance makes this a successful event. Several members have tickets – Tony Vigar, Harry Visser, Larry McCabe, Joe Lorentz, myself.
There are some upcoming events that require your participation. When contacted by a committee person lend your assistance if the date is not conflicting for you.
Friday June 2nd – Relay for Life BBQ & serving;
Thursday June 15th — Community Meal prepare, serve & cleanup;
Sunday July 2nd – Clustered Parish Picnic BBQ & serving.
At our last council meeting Br. Lorne Twamley was collecting pledges as he will be walking in the Relay for Life. Lorne will be pleased to add your name. There are also some other brothers walking that will gratefully take a pledge.
Bingo workers are needed. The 4th Degree has also received a license. This requires additional members to man the bingos. It is much easier than previously, sell the cards & pay out the prize money. Contact John Price or Larry McCabe.
Your Grand Knight
John J. Price
