A word from our Grand Knight Dennis Winkler
Wow!! Is it cold outside???
Well, now that the holidays have wound down, let us all take a deep breath and relax. I hope Santa brought you everything you wanted and the Lord gave you everything you needed?
I would like to thank a few people who made the Holiday Season here at the council such a great success. First thank you to our Sister Columbiettes and Brothers who decorated our council for Christ-mas. The council looked beautiful again this year.
Thank you, Deacon Chris and TJ Sommerville Jr. for running a great Christmas Party. Thank you to Kelley Sommerville for the baskets. They were beautiful as usual. Thank You to Tom and Gloria Sommerville for all of your help. It is so nice to come to a party and have everything so organized and ready to go that you can just come in and en-joy yourself.
I would also like to thank DGK Al LaHood and Brother John Marazita for running the children’s Christmas party. Also, to all the following people who had a part in making this such a success wrapping, decorating or helping in anyway: Maria & Al Porto, Josephine & Frank Sorrentino, Grace & Chick Angioli, Joan Russo, Julie Colini, Janet Moli-
na, Jeanette & Justin Winkler, Andy (Santa) & Mi-chael Panetta, Guiseppi Mendola& his son Guiseppi, Anthony Scuderi, Stan Wisz, Gary Rodetis…All the children and even the adults had a great time.
We have some of fun activities coming up in the next few months.
