Once again the nice weather has returned, so I guess it is spring at last.
We are in the process of scheduling our Tootsie Roll Drive for 2018 on Saturday June 2nd and Sunday June 3rd. Again we will have four locations in town manned from 9:00am until 5:00 pm on both days and 4 Masses.
I approached the selectman about covering the recycling yard from 9-4 on Saturday but was shot down on the 1st Amendment issue. I know other towns do this but no luck for us.
Congratulations go out to Council # 6902 , New Hampshire State Council Knights, Lady of the Year 2017-2018, Dorreen Dolan. The New Hampshire Knights of Columbus awarded her at the State Convention, April 28,2018 in Nashua, NH. She is always proud to represent our council.
Mother’s Day was May, 13 2018. I thank John Grzesik and the knights who help him distribute carnations at every Mass except the 6:00pm. John has chaired this event for several years. All profits go to Birthright.
Our next meeting is very important for all our brothers to attend for it is the election of officers. We have openings to fill and God willing some of my brothers will step up and fill these slots. Everyone working together makes the job so much easier. I am so proud of the men in our council, I am sure each man will do his part.
Congratulations go out to Mary and Rob Orlep on the birth of their daughter, Yvonne (I hope I spelled it right) we will keep you all in our prayers.
We have donated $100.00 to the Brain Injury Walk at Hampton Beach on June 3rd, anyone interested please contact Romeo Croteau. He is chairman of this event. I know it is during our Tootsie Roll Drive but maybe some of our wives and children would like to represent the knights on this beautiful day.
Your phone will be ringing as I attempt to cover all our Tootsie Roll locations. PLEASE HELP OUT !
May is the Blessed Virgin’s month, pray for her help in our daily lives. She always comes through.
Vivat Jesus (Long Live Christ),
Your Worthy Grand Knight, Jim Dolan
