Exemplification and Farewell – May 24th

Brother Knights,
We will be celebrating an Exemplification on May 24th at 6:30 pm in the Parish Hall. In addition to welcoming a number of new Brothers into the Knights, we will be saying farewell to Brother Keith Mobley who is moving off to Florida. We will have hamburgers and hot dogs and some drinks afterwards and we are asking you to bring a side dish or dessert that goes with such a fine fare. The link below will take you to the sign up genius for bringing a side dish and to RSVP that you will be coming so we know how many hamburgers and hot dogs we need to prepare.

See you all on the 24th.

Vivat Jesus, 
JPickard GK
