Dear Brother Knights,                                                                                                      September 2022

Here it is September, summer is gone and fall is rapidly approaching. I hope everyone had a good summer.

I would like to thank those who helped with the BBQ chicken at the Gathering at the Garst in July. We had very a successful event. Everyone did a great job. Thanks to Gary Ayette for taking the lead in getting all of the help for the event.


Follow up on the “2022 Super Cash Bonanza Charity Campaign”, we raised $3593.00. We donated $3400.00

to St Mary’s School. We sold a total of 949 tickets this year (school sold 247 of those). Winners of the contest for most tickets sold are: 1st place for $30 was Ed Hemmelgarn sold 154 tickets, 2nd place for $20 went to Jim Leugers sold 20 tickets and 3rd place for $10 went to Mike Homan sold 15 tickets. Thanks everyone for the great job.


I would like to thank the members who went out to the Light Foundation Gauntlet and done the cooking.
