My Brother Knights
Brothers, we had our summer Blood Drive on August 5th and it was a huge success. We collected a record 84 pints. Thanks to Dennis Brown for running the event and thanks to Steve Pasetti and Sal Anzalone for doing the cooking. On August 22nd we had our Installation of Officers and had a great turnout. Thanks to all the officers, both past and present, who make our Council work and special thanks to all the wives and family members who came down to support us. Please keep the victims of Hurricane Dorian, the Texas mass shooting and the Santa Barbara boat fire in your prayers. Please remember to mail back you C&B books. Also, Bingo is our largest fundraiser and we are always looking for extra hands to volunteer on Tuesday and Wednesdays. VIVAT JESUS! GOD BLESS!
Vivat jesus! God bless,
SK Darab Kevin Lawyer, Grand Knight.
