From the Grand Knight

November 2014


Dear Brothers,


Itís hard to believe that we are in November and we are preparing for Thanksgiving! We held our Casino Night fundraiser for Parish Outreach on October 18. Although we had a disappointing turnout, all that were present had a great time and a delicious dinner; thanks to all who helped. The next morning on October 19 was John Theissenís Freaky 5k run. Russell Merendino and I helped on behalf of the Knights, and John Michael and John Casella helped out by representing our Squires. The race was a huge success! On November 10 we held our annual Memorial Mass at St. Frances. In total, there were approximately 100 people in attendance. The 4th Degree Honor Guard was also present making our Mass even more Sacred. Thanks to PGK Dick Campbell for coordinating the Mass.


          The Keep Christ in Christmas magnet sales begin the weekend of November 15&16 after all the Masses. Please help PGK Mike Alliksen and give a hand selling at the Mass you attend. Our annual Craft Fair is on November 22 in St. Francesí auditorium. Deputy Grand Knight Bill Devlin needs help in all areas starting at 8:00 am. Please help Bill to make this very successful. On December 4th John Theissen hosts his Gala fundraiser at Mulcahyís. We all know the unbelievable work that Johnís Foundation does for all the children, so please purchase a ticket and be supportive. PGK Peter Coleman is once again the chairman for our Christmas party on December 13. Please see Peter for tickets. We have a 1st Degree scheduled for December 29th. And finally letís all try to recruit some Catholic gentlemen to join our Order. My Family and I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving!


Vivat Jesus
