~ State Deputy's 2014 Fourth of July Message! ~

 

Brother Knights,

As you all know, our principles are charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism.  Independence Day is a good day to reflect about patriotism. 

As you celebrate the Fourth of July with family and friends, remember to pause for a moment to think about our freedoms and how much we owe those who came before us and shaped our country into what it is today. We should especially keep in mind…

Hi Mike.  No we don't have our Church drive planned yet, but I believe we'll have another first-degree this month.  I appreciate you support!!!  http://stbenedictcouncil.catholicweb.com/

Mike:

Just tried to book a room for state convention and was told that had to be done through the Knights. Is that what the paper we filled out at the family meeting is for or do I need to confirm a room?

It is pleasure to meet you in Cedar Falls.  Ken Root described you and he as the "Moses and Aaron" of the Knight Life radio program -- he just didn't say who is whom!??!  Or whom is who?!??!    Be blessed always and in all ways, Mike!

Thanks but Ken loaded it as a video and all videos show up in the video box.  We should find time to discuss and understand a clear strategy for handling the Knight Life for the future.  I believe we have a better approach... that can be highlighted. 

My mind is formulating a "place-holder" image (small, but relevant to the topic) and the file would be back-linked to it.  Again, we should review the options.  I am glad it worked through the video upload - I am not sure anyone envisioned this approach. 

Thanks,

Mike,  I like the site but it will take a little to figure it out.

Our council had a "Baby Bottle Drive" and I would like to get a photo and caption on the site.Dan%20McEleney%20presenting%20ck%20to%20Pregnancy%20Center%20002.JPG

Dan McEleney, Grand Knight of St. Edwards Council #707 in Clinton, Iowa, presents a check in the amount of $3547 to Executive Director Merri Harridge of the Pregnancy Center in Clinton. The money was collected from the “Baby Bottle Drive”, from bottles distributed at Prince of Peace Church in Clinton and Church of the Visitation, Camanche. Past Grand Knight Jim Horst, not present in the picture, was chairman of the drive. The "Baby Bottle Drive" is when we pass out baby bottles on Mother's Day and ask parishner's to put their loose change in the bottle and return them on Father's Day.

Have a great day,  Henry
