My Brother Knights
Let me first wish you all a Blessed Lenten season and may God bless you with abundant joy on Easter and always. We have so much good stuff going on! The food drive for St. Anthony's pantry has been a huge success with already 9 drops offs made. Please continue to support and make non-perishable donations in the box located in the council lounge. I want to acknowledge and thank DGK Paul Kahl for running Operation Easter Basket; with the donations and contributions made he was able to make over 90 baskets to donate to local families in need. Please join us as we prepare to celebrate Easter at St. Anthony's - Good Friday at 10:30am April 2nd outdoor Stations of the Cross starting at O'Connell Gardens. Holy Saturday at 10:30am April 3rd Blessing of Easter Baskets & Easter Egg Hunt for children on the grounds of St. Anthony's Church by the Mary Gazebo. Our next membership meeting is Thursday, April 8th at 7:00pm. Elections are around the corner and currently there are 3 positions open for Board of Directors of #3481 and 1 Board position for Kenmah Realty Corporation. Just a heads up that May membership meetings will be held on the 6th and 20th at 7:00pm. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you again for all your support!
Vivat jesus! God bless,
