Knightly News June 2024

May Meeting
Monday May 20 meeting began at 6:45 PM with Prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. There were over 20 Knights present at the meeting. We approved a number of payments, primarily for the Brat Fry’s we held the previous week. We discussed some recent activities and plans for upcoming events. Officer Installation will be at the June Meeting. NOTE: Date change to June 24. Stephen Schneider reported that he had received and completed membership forms for seven new members. A subcommittee was formed to flesh out plans for the November 30 Council Celebration of 100 Years. That group’s efforts will be brought to a future meeting for final approval and action. Two of our members brought to Council attention two individuals who needed assistance with medical expenses. We closed the meeting with prayers for all members and their families recovering from illness or surgery and all living and deceased Council members.

CACS Brat Fry A Big Hit
Wednesday May 15 our Council helped celebrate the end of another school year with the annual cook out for students and staff. Special thanks to Knights, Don Ziegelbauer, Vince Bradley and Guy Arnold for doing the heavy lifting on this fun event. Clearly the children and staff were in good moods. Not sure if it was the grilled food, the ice cream, or the fact that the school year was just about complete!

June 2nd is Corpus Christi
Please consider joining in the procession that will commence after the 10 AM Mass. Our Council will carry the canopy as Fr Jon and Fr Juan take the Eucharist thru the neighborhood and back to the church where there will be a short period of adoration before the 2 PM Spanish Mass. This is an opportunity to publicly express your belief in the real presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Similar processions will take place throughout the world to honor Christ present, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the miraculous gift of Eucharist.

From the Files
This year marks the 100th Anniversary of our Council #2556. Our Council has enjoyed and benefited from the many familial and sibling members over the years. Consider the Steiners, Stanley Schmitz and his sons. Currently, the Mallmann brothers, Geiger, Juckem, Heiberger, Gross, Arnold, Criter, Geiser, Kolbe, Schneider, Weber, Owens and more families grace our ranks. But none have “topped” the Pfeffer family when Aloysius J. Pfeffer and his seven sons were all members. In fact, the Pfeffer family was honored for their contributions to the Knights at the 1937 State Convention. Do you have a family member that might consider joining us? Invite them to a meeting.

First Brat Fry of 2024
Friday May 17th, we hosted a community Brat Fry at Tractor Supply. The weather was better than excellent and the appetites voracious as we cooked and served up nearly 1300 sandwiches. Our crew of 28 volunteers put in over 170 hours to prepare the food, deliver it and then clean up the site. We want to especially thank our non- Knight helpers and the four ladies who helped and are, quite frankly, much better at multi-tasking than your average Knight! At our May meeting, Monday the 20th, the Council voted to use the proceeds of the Brat Fry to help two individuals who are facing serious medical issues and expenses. Donating $1500 to each. Thanks to the Community for your Support!
