My Brother Knights at the Union Knights of Columbus,
It’s hard to believe that half of this Columbian year is over as we celebrate the coming of 2015. The first half of the 2014-2015 year has been good in Union Council. Many successful events have been run both by the Council and Columbian Club. The most recent event was breakfast with Santa which was well attended and enjoyed by all who attended. Thank you to Mike Willemse and Kevin Gongob who chaired the event and to all the brothers who jumped in and helped.
The Council’s sale of Keep Christ in Christmas magnets raised $305 for the Citizens with Intellectual Disabilities Fund. Thank you to all who bought magnets to support this worthy cause. And a special thank you to Kathy Boetsch who was our super salesperson.
Coming up is our annual Super Bowl party in early February. The Columbian Club is running a few other events which are published elsewhere in the Digest.
Also on the horizon is the renewal of the Council’s scholarship for children of Knights or Columbiettes to help defray the cost of attending Catholic High School. More details about this will appear in future months.
My main message here is to say thank you to all the brothers who helped make the first half of this Columbian year the success that it was. A lot of good things have occurred in Union Council and many more are to come. Please keep up the good work. To those who have not participated in Council events in recent years, please make a New Year’s resolution to join in the action in our upcoming events.
Happy New Year to all.
