My Brother Knights
November is the kick start of the festive season we share with our family and friends. I want to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and be
sure to share the love and good times between family and friends. October 31st we celebrated the Beatification of Ft. Michael McGivney with a beautiful mass at St. Anthony's and participated in the live mass that was video streamed from St. Joseph's Cathedral in Hartford, CT. Thank you Ft. Brett for organizing this! Let's give a big round of applause to our Chancellor Donald Morgan for another successful Steak & Cigar fundraiser. We need to think outside the box during these difficult times and find new and exciting ways to raise funds for our charities. Please be sure to participate in the C&B Raffle Fundraiser as well as encouraging your friends and family to participate. We will be setting up the Creche on Saturday, November 28th 9:30 am meeting at the council - help is welcomed! Tuesday, December 1st will be the Annual Tree Lighting 7:30pm O'Connell Gardens. Next General Meeting is Thursday, December 3rd 8:00pm - your attendance is important.
