Thoughts from Our Grand Knight 

Brother Knights, Vivat Jesus! 

 Merry Christmas! 

As December is the end of 2017, I can look back at the year of 2017 and say we have done the Lords work well.  We accomplished the goals we set forth in closing the hall and moving to St Margaret's of Scotland.   It was a big chore, and many good people were involved.  I THANK YOU ALL. As for now, all our past history of awards and pictures are in storage and will be given to those who want some of it.  We will have a vote in the future to destroy everything that is not wanted.  We have no room to store or display anything.  We will keep awards for a period of time and then give them to the Grand Knight that earned them. Again all our meetings will be held in Tocco Hall and our office will be held in room 405. At last month's general membership meeting the council voted to start our social event to 6:30 pm and start the General Membership meeting sharply at 7:00 pm.  

In last month’s newsletter, the Adult Christmas party was advertised as Dec 16th this is wrong.  The new date will be Dec 8th in Tocco Hall at 5:00pm, and admission will be 3 canned goods. We ordered late and were able to get 50 lawn signs “Keep Christ in Christmas” and magnets that will be sold during the holidays.  The food drive will be held Dec 21st and delivered on the 22nd.  The Children's Christmas Party will be held Sunday, December 3rd after the 8:00am mass at St Margaret's Men's Club (breakfast with Santa), all grandparents are invited.  You don't want to miss this event.

            As we start the New Year in the month of January general membership meeting, we will set our goals to organize our directors and committees to bring about the activities for the entire year.  Our program director Jerry Harrold will set the directors meetings in the future. I would expect to see all in attendance. This first meeting is very important and will require additional help than has already been committed. All members are welcome to attend, and encouraged to do so. If not, volunteer for a committee, or at least come and give us your ideas as to what you would like to see happen in this New Year. We need fundraisers to boost the budget of our general fund. Be just a small part of this council in any way that will encourage other members to be proud and want to join in.  The council is compiling an email list in order to better communicate our events.  This email will be for council and KofC business only.  If you want to be included in this important media, please text your email address to or and you will receive weekly updates. 

God Bless you and a Blessed Christmas
