Dear Brother Knights,                                                                                                 August  2019

Here it is the end of August and summer is gone. The Great Darke County fair is over and school has begun. I hope everyone had a great summer.

I would like to thank those who helped at the Gathering at the Garst in July. We had a successful event.

We only had about 50 dinners left on Saturday. The chicken that was not bought by members was donated to the Soup Kitchen. Everyone did a great job. Thanks to Gary Ayette and Dave Warner for getting all of the help for the event. We profited over $3200 for the weekend.


Thanks to everyone who helped cook and serve food at the Light Foundation Gauntlet on August 3rd. This is

always a fun event to work for.


The 18th Annual Best Ball Golf Scramble is coming up on September 28, 2019. If you would like to participate in this event with a team or need to be put on a team, let me know before Sept. 21st. Cost is $40 per person or $160 per team. Tee time is at 10:00 AM this year.

You can reach me at 548-2411 or email [email protected]


Prairie Days is coming up on Sept. 28th & 29th. We will need help with cooking and selling food on both days. This is a good fund raiser for the council. If you can help give me a call at 548-2411.


I would like to thank Randy Ayette for hauling the gravel for the parking lot. He dumped 102 ton last week

and spread it out. We will be putting a line of poles down (east & west) for the parking spaces. Hopefully this will slow down the turnaround traffic and keep the gravel where it belongs.


Results of the Supper Cash Bonanza earned us $1530, which was given to St Mary’s School for their

help in selling tickets. Also, we gave the Darke County Special Olympics a check for $1934.40 from our

Measure Up Campaign. Once again I would like to thank everyone who helped with these fund raisers.


Upcoming events: Fish Fries for 2019 are Sept. 20th, Oct. 18th and Nov.15th 4:30 to 7:00 PM. We are always

In need of help. If you can help, please give me a call at 548-2411.


We will be reciting the Rosary at 8:30 mass each Sunday in October. Anyone who can help, please be at

Church at 8:00 AM.


Next meeting is Sept. 4th at 7:30 PM.


July Pot of Gold winner Louis Heiser (not present).

August Pot of Gold winner Kevin Romer (not present)

If you have anything you would like to put in the news letter, email it to me. I will continue by-monthly with

the news letter.


Yours in Christ
