We had our January meeting online as a Zoom meeting due to the restrictions. We had a much better turnout then the December meeting and were able to complete all required business with no issues.
We closed the Casey the Teddy Bear program. We raised around $750 profit from the program. PGK, FDD Jeff Gapczynski delivered the 4-1/2 cases of bears to the hospital. We now have funds to run it the rest of the year also. Hopefully we will get back to the Casino trip fundraiser next year.
Our next general meeting is currently planned to be in person on February 11th at 7:30. We will possibly be having an exemplification before the meeting at 6:30. We are planning to record this exemplification so we can post it online. We currently have one new member attending. If anyone is not a 3rd degree member and would like to attend, please let me know so we can be prepared. I will be monitoring the rules set out by the State and the Archdiocese for any changes. If we have to pull back the number of people, we could have a Zoom meeting or a hybrid meeting with some in person and some Zoom. I will send out updates if there are any changes.
You should all have your state raffle tickets. Please sell these, as the proceeds fund some state programs. The council also receives a kickback from each ticket sold.
Lent is just around the corner, and you know what that means! Fish Fries are back! Please prepare to help out with this, our biggest fund raiser of the year. We will be doing something whether we have to do carry out only or drive through or something. We are working out the logistics for the kitchen work to happen safely and within state guidelines. Stay tuned...
From my family to yours, we wish you a blessed Lent. Let us hope and pray that 2021 brings an end to this pandemic and our lives can return to normal.
