My Brother Knights of Council 7232

I want to thank everyone that participated in the State Car Raffle this year. The Council sold $990 worth of tickets and will make a profit of $495. Brother Ron

Labriola led the sales by selling 50 tickets. I hope that all had a fruitful Lenten Season this year and a Happy Easter. Although Lent is over, please try to remain resurrected in the Lord by continuing to stay steadfast in prayer with occasional fasting and abstinence. Always re-member that it is a repentant heart that the Lord wants from us all.

Brothers, we are ending the Fraternal Year soon. It is now time to think about stepping up and being an Officer in our Council. Nominations will take place during the May Council meeting. Please consider yourself as a candidate for an office.

The Knight of the month for March was Brother Peter DiPrima. Again, we must all play an active role in recruiting new members into our Council. If you know any parishioner that is not a member and you have an encounter with them, you only have to say you should join us. and refer them to Bill Gautier, or myself, so we can get them a Form – 100.

Since we were not able to do the Operation LAMB (Tootsie Roll) distribution this year at Walmart due to Covid-19. Please consider buying a box $5.00 ( $ 30. a carton, consist of 6 box-es in a carton ) Tootsie Rolls and distributing among friends & family with always stating that any donation would greatly help those that are less fortunate due to being mentally challenged. See Brother Troy Allen or myself to obtain a supply to distribute on your own.

All Sir Knights,

Most all other state meetings, conventions,

fur-ther notice. The exception was a Fourth

De-gree Regional Exemplification on the 6th of

March, 2021. The location was is in

Wilming-ton, NC at the Basilica Shrine of St. Mary.

Time was 11:30 a.m. sharp! And all

Candi-dates had to be there no later then 10:30 a.m.
