Grand Knight's Message
My Brothers,
  Happy New Year to all my Brother Knights! 2018 was a very successful year for all our fundraisers and social events. With your support I look forward to even more success in the new year. We would also like to see more of our new members, who have joined within the past year, get involved in some Council activities. We only ask for one or two hours of your time each month.

Vivat jesus! God bless,

SK Eugene Peluso, Grand Knight.
