I pray, that as a community we grow spiritually finding a closer connection with God, family and our friends. Some of you may have already heard that Our Worthy Grand Knight John Punzo has resigned. The giving of a persons time to help others is a truly a gracious gift. I would like to personally thank our Brother John Punzo and his family for the time he has spent as Our Grand Knight. On behalf of the Joseph Krenn council 8629 I wish Brother John and his family all the best ! The executive has informed me as well the Grand Knights Handbook Page 46 states “In the absence of the Grand Knight , the Deputy Grand Knight presides at council meetings and functions as the Grand Knight would.” As we are now into January, Council 8629 will follow this protocol until our council’s elections in June. I would like to thank all who attended our Christmas Dinner as well those who also helped in setup /organizing and in the kitchen making it a great success! There was an attendance of approx 105 people. At the dinner our council through our gaming account was able to donate monies to some very worthy causes. I would like to extend a special thanks to Brothers Steven Shaw and Brother Oswald Rego for their efforts with the Knights of Columbus Keep Christ in Christmas campaign. January 29,2011 Our Council will be hosting a major degree in the ST.B Parish Hall. After the ceremonies all will attend the 5 o’clock mass. I am requesting that if any brothers are available for either the ceremonies or the mass to please attend. I look forward to seeing you the first Thursday of the month January 6, 2011 for our regular meeting! Please remember that the Saint Vincent de Paul Food Bank still needs our help so if your able bring a non perishable food item to the regular meeting.
