Today was Ed Redlawski’s 91st birthday.  Ed’s a man Not letting age slow him down.  He’s there to help with absolutely everything.  Tonight was his birthday and he showed at our December membership meeting.   Happy Birthday, Ed!  Many returns Brother.

Well, the Big Red Jolly One graced us with his presence last Sunday.   All the kids had a great time and we served many breakfasts.  Lot’s of requests were offered.   Santa even entertained a few requests from the membership.  I got a note later saying there will be more lumps of coal this year than last year.  Tough luck Jim Parker!  🙂

We need to have a caption contest.  What’s the thought bubble over Sandy’s head?

Hi Everyone, just a couple quick things. Today’s the last day to let us know if you can attend out 2017 Christmas Party. It’s going to be a huge deal this year! The food is going to be upgraded from last year. We have a live band. Not just any live band. This year we have Wayward Wind. So, we’ll be spending less time raffling things off, and more time enjoying the evening.

This year we are kindly asking for an RSVP. If you’ve already done so, thank you. If you’ve not had the chance before now, would you please let us know. Today’s the last day to change our food order.

Christmas with Santa This SUNDAY

This Sunday the Knights will be hosting a Free Breakfast with Santa after the 9 and 11 am Masses ONLY. We could use a little help with the usual things, cooking, bussing, set up, clean up and other things. Like I said earlier, Santa couldn’t bring his elves due to union rule restrictions. If you could show up and help us out, not only would the kids appreciate it, but, Santa will be watching. He’s always watching! #NoCoalThisYear


Good morning.  Russ Morgan is looking for help with covering the Christmas Masses.  He’s created a signup site.  Please have a look and sign up if you can help out.

Brothers, District Deputy Gary Kopp is again leading our efforts to help Holy Cross Children’s Services, the St. Louis Center and our Michigan Veterans.  Remember, “sharing is the will of the Lord.”  There are several choices for donations.

Gary needs all councils donations by November 30th if he’s going to get it to the Winter Meeting.  We’d like to have this completed by the time of our next Membership Meeting on November 16th.  Gary will pick them up that evening.

Our council has historically focused on giving sweatshirts.  Please see the guidelines below.


The sweatshirt program continues.  This has been a very successful program over the years.  The children need great-looking sweatshirts or hoodies with sports or college logs. Adult size only, please. Large, XL, XXL, XXXL and XXXXL. Quality is as important as quantity.  Remember, your gift may be the only gift these teens get.  Please place your sweatshirt in a decorated gift box and write the size on the outside of the box.  If it is definitely a girls shirt, please mark it box accordingly in large, easy to read lettering. If you have many shirts of the same size, please place those boxes in another box and mark the size on the larger box.  This will save our volunteers a lot of work.

Thank you for your participation.

Questions, call Joe Suminski




A big “thank you” goes out to Dan Masko for covering the photography portion of our Peach Festival activities.  I went over to his house on Monday and harvested the pictures from his camera.  Click the image below to see the best of.  Thanks to all the brothers that were able to help out, their families and most of all, the kind folks that showed up for dinner and parked with us for one of the days during Peach Festival.
