Grand Knight’s Message

Hello everyone,

Tom Goodhart and Steve Dort

I want to thank Past Grand Knight Tom Goodhart for his 6 years of leadership as well as his help as I have been transitioning into the role. I appreciate ‘s patience as I have been learning the process, traditions and of course everyone’s names. I also want to thank everyone for their kind words the past few months.

I would like to encourage all brothers to attend our monthly meetings on the first Tuesday of the month at the hall. We start at 7 p.m. with the rosary and then go directly into our meeting. If you have not been there in a while, consider this your invitation to come and join us.

In addition, please mark your calendars for October 23, 2022, as we hold a first-degree ceremony at 11:30 a.m. at the hall. Afterword we will watch the Browns game with our new members. Wives and families are welcome to the watch party.

To increase membership, I have reached out to Immaculate Conception Parish, St. Paul Parish and St. Francis De Sales Parish to speak at each mass and be available to meet with men who are interested in membership. I have completed the first two weekends and will be at St. Francis De Sales Parish the weekend September 24, 2022.

I want to remind everyone that every Wednesday the hall is open for a Pot Luck meal. Hot Dogs are provided each week, with the exception of the last Wednesday which is Pizza. Bring a side dish and join us. Doors open at 6 p.m., eat at 7 p.m. If you can not make Wednesday, the lounge is also open M and F starting at 6 p.m. All drawings are now active. Stop in, sign up and join us for a drink. You can drop off your charity tickets while you are here!

Be good everybody,
Steve Dort, Grand Knight

Charity campaign – Football Crazr

Our Council has 250 tickets to sell. They are $20 each with 23 chances to win per ticket for 10 weeks. If you have taken and sold tickets, please turn them in at the hall.

Last year we sold 97 tickets. I would like to see us sell them all this year if possible. As of writing this newsletter we have 38 tickets sold and turned in. We do receive $5.50 of the $20 pack to our council. This will increase the more we sell. If we can sell all 250, the money back to us will be used to purchase an AED for the hall. If you need tickets or would like more to sell you can call the council at 330-773-3410 or Steve Dort.

Please Return all sold Tickets by October 15, 2022
