The meeting December 19th began at 6:45 PM at Eagles Club. Past Grand Knight Herb Buhl chaired the meeting. After paying the bills we heard about receipt of several thank-you’s from individuals or groups we assisted last month. Our mission is to be a light of Faith and Charity in our community so we don’t do this for the accolades, but it is still reassuring to know these efforts are appreciated. We prepared the annual raffle tickets for distribution. The Raffle is a key component of our council’s charitable outreach so please be generous in your support!
We will again this year purchase and arrange for distribution of pewter miraculous medals and booklets explaining the sacrament to each of the First Reconciliation students. This is our third year supporting this effort and we have a large class of 32 second graders receiving them.
Meeting Venue Change
Our Council has decided to move our monthly meetings to the Good Shepherd Parish Hall, still the 3rd Monday of each month at 6:45 pm. We appreciate the great support provided by the staff and facilities of the Eagles Club over these many years and will continue to hold social and events e.g., Bingo at the Eagles Club.
Good News to Share
Brother James Holzer gave those present a very positive update on his grandson Henry. You may recall that Henry is the infant for whom we sponsored a Brat Fry in August of this year. He has undergone major surgery and completed an extensive Chemotherapy regimen. While he will continue to be monitored via MRI and CAT scans over the months ahead, the doctors have reported that the cancer appears to be gone and expect Henry to regain his strength quickly.
Brother Guy Arnold had to undergo a leg amputation in November and reported that he is ahead of the “recovery” curve by 3 weeks and is pain free for the first time in many years! He also joked that he was 35 pounds lighter.
