Grand Knight's Message
I hope you all had a wonderfully blessed Christmas. It's such a great time to remember how blessed all of us are, even through our struggles. And gives us hope as we enter a new calendar year. Thanks to all of you for all you do, not only in the Knights of Columbus, but in your families, parishes, schools, and communities.
I invite you to come join us at our January meeting - it's EARLY this month - on January 8th, at 7:00. We will vote for Knight of the Year and Family of the Year, with the winners announced at our annual Awards Banquet on Sunday, February 24 (Save the Date!).
We will also have a very important discussion at our January 8th meeting regarding the roof of the hall. We recently experienced damage and our insurance company is replacing the shingles. There will be a discussion about whether to replace the shingles with 30 year shingles or with a metal roof. Your input is needed. If you can't make the meeting but would like to share your thoughts, please feel free to call me at (501) 977-4585.
Mark Hoelzeman, G.K.
