Brothers,
   First off welcome to the new First Degree Knights Brother Thomas (St Vincent de Paul) and Zach (St. Joseph’s) and coagulations on obtaining the third degree to Brothers MacLean, Mark, Jarrod, and Clifton.

  This is a reminder of our meeting this Wednesday.  We got the beef stroganoff so we hope you can come and eat it.  Also, as earlier announced we will be planning our 25th anniversary bash and ways forward.  The bowling night will be a fundraiser for Warriors to Lourdes!  Additional ideas we received include: an overnight retreat, board game night or escape room, helping our churches get a street sign to direct people to the parishes, social outings that could be advertised to the public allowing for a come and see for prospective new members, group masses, tying in opportunities for adoration and/or a faith speaker at meetings, and a "next big project" to follow up on the ultrasound success.  Come and discuss these and other ways ahead.  The next ear can be epically great if we all provide ideas.
