Grand Knight's Message
Brother Knights,

Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a wonderful time with your loved ones during the holidays, got some time off and recharged for the 2020.

As we start a new calendar year and move into the second half of our Columbian year, we also switch into more of the fundraising type events. We are off to a slow start as we had to cancel 2 events this month but we will be ramping up quickly with the Walk for Life, Crab Feed and our Lenten events.

I invite you all you attend our January Business Meeting this coming Thursday, January 9, at St. Charles Borromeo. As usual, we will start with dinner at 6:30pm followed by the meeting at 7:30pm. We will be discussing our main priorities and goals for the remainder of the Columbian year.

Thank you and God bless.

Vivat Jesus!

Anthony R. Contarciego
Grand Knight

If you have sporting event tickets (sports, performances), condos, timeshares, art, jewelry, services, please consider making a donation to the council and we will use it to raise funds during the auction.

If you would like to purchase a sponsorship of the event as marketing for your business, those are also available!!
