My Father Gene Mahr, was a member of the Knights of Columbus for over fifty years, he passed away this past Friday. There will be a Knights of Columbus Rosary said on Sunday at three o'clock at the Heritage Center in Cresco. I'd be so proud to have as many Brother Knights that can to come and help me and my family by helping me say the Rosary for my dad. My dad was 89 years old, my Mom is 89, there are 11 of us kids, 34 grand kids, and 43 great grand kids, with two on the way.

Thank you

And God Bless

District Seven Deputy
