Grand Knight’s Message
Welcome to a new fraternal year, fellow brother
Knights! This is my first newsletter for our new year and would like to take
this moment to thank our past Grand Knight Scott Mohwinkle for an awesome job
as our leader this past year! Scott leaves large shoes to fill but I don’t
look at this position as only me to fill these shoes, but a fraternity of
brothers that will all pitch in with volunteering and heartfelt commitment to
charity, your parish, and your own internal faith.
I look forward to this upcoming year and
working with all of you.
Feel free to contact me with your ideas,
concerns, and anything that will benefit Council 909!
Officer installation will
be held on July 5th, 7:00pm, in place of the regular business meeting. Please
attend the installation to show support for the officers that were voted in
at last month’s meeting.
Next regular meeting will
be held August 2nd at 7:00pm.
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.
Deputy Grand Knight and Chairman for this Drive
Raffle & Dinner
Ben Verhille is the
new Chairman of this committee. Let's welcome him aboard with a record
setting year by breaking the mark of 8,800 tickets sold in 2012! The
Hawkeyes set records last year and we can do the same. Please sell as
many as possible as well as purchasing some for yourself at 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. ~Ben Verhille
