Grand Knight's Report
(from November 25th General Meeting)
Brother Nights, we’re back again. We had a pretty good turnout tonight at the Necrology Mass. The list of deceased is getting pretty long. Fortunately over the last year we have not lost anyone from 12202. Let’s pray we have the same fortune of the coming year. Thank you to Brother Jack for putting this together tonight.
Last week we had 3 new knights go through the first degree ceremony; Andrew Pfannschmidt, Ben Lowen, and Phil Allen. It was a great ceremony and the 4949 team did an outstanding job. Our net new membership has grown by eight over the last couple months. Keep up the great work brothers in growing our fraternity.
Last Saturday night was the St. James Pub Night and Silent Auction. I’d like to thank Gord Adams, Brian Monaghan, Jack McLaughlin, Bernie Lutes, and Maurice Bouchard (our quarterback) for their outstanding efforts in running the bar. The feedback from the school was very positive.
For our January meeting I have asked Amery Schultz do a presentation on the new insurance offerings. There have many changes and from what I understand, all for the better.
Just as a note, we will not have a December general meeting due to the Christmas season hustle and bustle. Our next general meeting will be on January 26th, 2009
That’s all for tonight. I ‘d like to keep it short as the ladies are upstairs drinking all the wine.
Thank you for your time. Until next month, live, laugh and be happy, all while doing God’s work.
District Deputies Report:
Brother Knights, I am always pleased to see the fraternity that is shown among our Brother Knights. Whether at a funeral or a social function, you can not find a nicer bunch of guys to be around. Everyone is always so caring and
Does anyone know who this man is?
He was recently seen at the St. James Pub Night bee-bopping to the likes of the Holly's and Shania Twain. Rumour has it that it was our very own Father Martin, but this is yet to be confirmed. If it was, this is a talent that the author of this writing has never seen before.
Roy Wylie earns Certificate of Appreciation
November 28th Fraternity Night
What an awesome night this turned out to be. There were more families with children then have been for a few years, and they all appeared to having a great time. The kids were challenged with a crossword game for a reward of a candy bar for each completed puzzle. The adults also had their memories tested in a trivia game. It appeared there are some pretty good memories. At least 3 people remembered Choo Choo bars. The highlight had to be the Zirka dancers however. There costumes and chirography were second to none. Everyone was treated to a turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Wine on the tables was provided by the Schubert Centre, whom did an outstanding job in treating us to a fine night. Thank you to all that attended.
Keep Christ in Christmas Family Event
As a reminder, we are having our second annual Keep Christ in Christmas event at OLOV on the 14th of this month at 3pm. This will entail a few Christmas songs, crafts, stations in the church whereby we learn more about our faith, plus a good possibility that Santa will appear. Don't miss this great family faith event. It was a huge hit last year, so let's keep this tradition alive.
Father Martin's Birthday
Last Sunday we celebrated Father Martin's birthday with a cake. It appeared to be a huge hit as the Narthex was as full as I've ever seen it after mass. Thank you to Myles Bukowsky for running with this. The cakes were fabulous. Happy belated birthday Father Martin!
