Grand Knight's Message
As summer is waning, I am suddenly asking myself, “What happened?" No vacations, a hot summer, and the same shelter-in -place routine has truly accelerated time for me. I continue to pray that we turn the corner on this pandemic and that we can once again meet in person as a council.
Our Brothers continue to put in the hard work to make sure our Pastor and Parish are supported with their commitment to numerous hours of parking lot patrol, by quickly responding to a fundraiser at Pastas, providing assistance at funerals, or by simply organizing lines for social distancing. Thank you to those that supported the Knights fundraiser with Pastas. It was our first try at an event like this and through sales and donations, we raised over $750. One of the biggest rewards for me is when we can financially support our community.
Recently, PGK Jom Sicat handed over a donation from our council to Fr. Mark for $10,000 to support our never-ending parish financial needs. These funds do not magically appear, they come from the numerous fundraising we do all year. Thank you all again.
Speaking of events, be sure to read the details in the newsletter where our council has a couple of more important fundraising events planned. A September 21st fundraiser with SideTrack restaurant and our traditional Festa Italiana on October 24th. Please try to support if you can and as a reminder, this is open to everyone.
Stay safe. Reach out if you need any assistance.
