This week, we stare mid-January in the face. The year is not so new anymore! Have we made a good start?
We had two gentlemen from our Council step up to the Second Degree on Saturday. It was a very moving and meaningful ceremony, and I thank all the Brother Knights who participated. Some of the First Degrees among you may be wondering why you need to advance to the Second Degree and higher. You have to be there in order to appreciate.
In the same vein, I invite all the Second Degrees among you to make time to attend our Third Degree Exemplification on January 24.
This is a week of more firsts for 2015: Family Rosary Night at Bro. Alberto Nisperos’ residence, Dancercise on Friday, SARAH Blood Pressure Check on Sunday. Those excess Christmas calories have got to go…
…if only to make room for pancakes! Come and help set up on Saturday morning and flip a few on Sunday.
Do you have or know kids age 10 to 14 years? Sign them up now for the Free Throw Championship coming up at the end of the month. Email me.
See you at the General Meeting Monday night! We have appointed
a slate of officers for the important vacant and vacated positions (DGK and 2 guards) and shall be installing them.
Please extend Council 10681’s invitation to the free screening of the movie “Red Light, Green Light” to your relatives and non-Council 6855 friends.
