Dear Brother Knights,                                                                                             April  2022

I would like to thank everyone who helped with the Fish Fries during Lent. It was a very trying year for fish fries with the cost increasing almost every week and being able to find fish to buy. Because of this, we did not have a benefit fish fry for the Measure Up Campaign. The Darke County Special Olympics will be having their field day events on May 13, 2022 from 8:30 am to 2:00 pm. We will be selling kettle corn at this event to raise money for the Measure Up Campaign. The money we raise from the Measure Up is given to the Darke County Special Olympics foundation. We need about six people to help fill bags and sell kettle corn on May 13th. If you would like to help, give me a call at 937-548-2411 or email me at [email protected]

“2022 Super Cash Bonanza Charity Campaign” We made our quota for the first turn in, with a record number of ticket sales. Ray has sent the tickets and money to the State Council. If you have not purchased your tickets please do so and turn the ticket stubs and money into Ray Beyke, 310 Driftwood Dr. Greenville Oh. 45331 (937-467-6061) by May 8th so he can get everything sent in to the State by May 13th.

We will be selling Roses after all Masses on Mother’s Day weekend (May 7th & 8th) to raise money for the Darke County Right to Life. If you can help at a Mass, call Gary Ayette (937-547-1757) and let him know which   mass you can help at.
