Grand Knight's Message
I want to personally invite all Brother Knights and their wives/guests to attend our annual Knights of Columbus Awards Banquet on Sunday, February 24. Happy hour will be at 5:00, followed by a delicious meal cooked by our own Brother Knight Eddie Joe Poteete and followed by the banquet to recognize all the hard work and wonderful fellowship we have enjoyed this past year. There will be no cost for this event, but we do need a good head count for meal preparation so please call me at (501) 977-4585 (or text) to let me know you are attending by Monday, February 18.
A big thanks to our Life Director Richard De Luca, who made arrangements for the bus to take people to the annual March for Life. Unfortunately, the bus didn't cooperate! My wife and I were fortunate to be able to attend along with several CYM members the Weekend for Life, including the Mass for Life and procession led by Bishop Taylor. It was a wonderful experience and I strongly encourage others to consider this event next year. In the meantime, continue praying daily for the unborn and for our legislators to enact laws to protect the unborn and life in all stages.
It's time to make plans for the state K of C Convention, which will be in Little Rock this year on the last weekend in April. Any Brother Knight interested in attending should contact me and I can get you registered or just give you more information.
There's a lot going on - read on for the details. Thanks for all you do!
Mark Hoelzeman, G.K.
