Summer is almost over and it is time for back to school. With two teachers in the Gray household this is a busy time of year for us indeed. On behalf of my family I would also like to thank you all for the love and support you have shown us during this difficult time. It really means the world to us.
We were privileged to have Father Joe Hund visit us from New Orleans. His parish is having issues with the air conditioning and are having a raffle fund raiser. If you are interested see Jerry Hund to purchase tickets. Our council is going to have a membership drive and a baby bottle fundraiser in September, so stay tuned for some details coming up. We will need men to work the table and do some recruiting. The baby bottle drive will be benefitting Gianna House and Abigayle Ministries.
Labor Day is coming up, so here is a little piece of wisdom from Theodore Roosevelt on work. " No man needs sympathy because he has to work, because he has a burden to carry. Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”
From my family to yours, we wish you a Happy Labor Day!

I hope this finds you all well, happy, and dry. That was quite a July with all the rain!
We did the tree trimming on July 10th at the parish. I want to thank the following knights for their efforts: Ken Krause, Hank Leflere, Mike Hartel, Ron Marrese, Phil Kwasny, George Schulte, Ray Coughlin, Steve Kargenian, Vince Ursini, and Rob Amsler. I apologize if I missed anyone who came later. There were also two parishioners Maria Fazzalari, and Bill Lawson who helped out. It looks wonderful!

As we are easing into Summer with restrictions being lifted, I hope this finds you all well and happy.
The MI Drive funds were received from the State and dispersed to our selected charities. Thank you to all those who volunteered to deliver them.
At our last general meeting, we celebrated the 25th anniversary of the council! Our Worthy State Advocate, Charles McCuen, represented the State Council. We presented Knight of the Year award to Angelo Garavaglia. Family of the year was awarded to the Ken and Peggy Dudley family. We had four lifetime achievement awards: George Loewen, Hank Leflere, Ken Grobbel, and Ted Czarny. There was special men- tion of our charter Worthy Treasurer, Ray Coughlin, for his years of loyal service and dedication to this council. Thank you Ray for all you do!
We bid adieu to our outgoing Worthy District Deputy Ernie Boulis and welcomed our new one Dan Nowakowski. Ernie served District 1/101 for 6 years. We only had him for a couple of years, but his solid leadership was greatly appreciated. Thank you for your loyal service Ernie! Also thank you Dan for your willingness to step into this leadership role, we are looking forward to working with you.
You will note on the calendar that we are going to have an exemplification before our July general membership meeting. We are also going to resume meals before the meetings. So the exemplification will begin at 6. If you are not a 3rd degree member please consider attending this very nice ceremony. Also feel free to attend if you are and would just like to see it. Just let us know so we can plan for the number of attendees.
The weekend of July 16th is the ice cream social. We will set up the tent Friday afternoon and serve ice cream after all the masses. Please consider working this event, it will be very welcome to see some more of the parishioners and talk after such a long time.
We are going to do a baby bottle drive after the summer, so stay tuned as we iron out the details. We, along with help from the church, decided to post pone our membership drive till after the summer as well. Looking to do the baby bottle drive in conjunction with the membership drive.
From my family to yours, we wish you a happy Independence Day!
Vivat Jesus! Tom Gray
