I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends !!!!

Our next meeting is Tue, December 3rd starting with our Social at 5:30 followed by the Fraternal meeting at 7:00 pm.

Our Pancake Breakfast on Nov 24th was a great kickoff meal for the upcoming Thanksgiving Weekend !!

The Veteran's Day/Honor Flight Dinner Event on Nov 9th was a VERY HUGH SUCCESS !! We had about 280 attendees including some very special war veterans. We welcomed a 104 yr old WWII nurse to the dinner - Athena Wright. This is also the first year that Honor Flight is taking reservations from Vietnam War Vets.

AS ALWAYS.......

We look forward to again gaining the Star Council award for the upcoming Fraternal Year. In order to do this we need to recruit new members, gain new insurance/annuity accounts and fulfill the steps outlined in our Faith in Action Guide. We will soon introduce at new method to meet our insurance goals for Star Council....stay tuned !!

As Supreme Knight Carl Anderson said, "If we can't meet young Catholic men where they are, they will go somewhere else. And in this era, it is too easy to go somewhere else when we need them to be home. Home in the Catholic Church, home in their parishes, and home with their families."

We look forward to helping our parish, our church leaders, our fellow parishioners, our community and ourselves !!

Vivat Jesus !!
