Grand Knight’s Message

Fellow Brother Knights ~ I hope that everyone is having a safe and wonderful summer so far! We are fast approaching our annual Intellectual Disabilities (Tootsie Roll) Drive and hope that you all make a conscious effort to sign up and try to do at least one 2-hr shift if possible.

This leads to my next point of challenging all of you to try to attend at least one meeting within the next 6 months, one social event and one charity activity this coming fraternal year. This sounds like a great effort, but really only requires a small part of your time.

I would like to thank all of you that currently go above and beyond those that hopefully will step up and also volunteer.

God bless!

Persons with Intellectual Disabilities “Tootsie Roll” Drive

This year’s Tootsie Roll Drive will be held on August 4th, 5th, 6th & 7th.  There is a sign-up sheet posted at the club. Please try to donate any amount of time that you can. Remember, Charity is one of the pillars of our organization and what better way to honor that than donating your time for this worthy cause.

Upcoming Hawkeye Raffle & Dinner

The Hawkeyes set records last year and we can do the same this year to top the 8,800 ticket mark. Please sell as many as possible as well as purchasing some for yourself and family, for the chance to win 2 season tickets to see the Hawkeye football team in action. There will be more tickets behind the bar at the club when you need them. The winner will be drawn at the Raffle Dinner on Saturday, August 27th.
