Keep In Your Prayers…

Please keep in your prayers Dot Davis, Marilyn Ryan, Beth Porreca, and all the sick and disabled Brother Knights in our daily prayers.

Remember it is important that if something happens to a member they get in touch with Frank Powell or the Grand Knight at the time it happens – Frank’s number and e-mail is on the back of your membership card.  If there is a Brother Knight who is sick, please let Frank know.

5th Annual Octoberfest Success!

Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate Octoberfest with the Knights and our guests!  We had a great turnout, great food (thanks to Ben’s Deli in Morrisville) and drink (thanks to Killarney’s Publick House in Hamilton, NJ), and a DJ (Scott Robinson, also a 4th Degree Knight) that kept the crowd going all night.  Congratulations to all of the winners of our door prizes, silent auction items, and 50/50 drawings, and most importantly, for your generosity and support!
