Thanksgiving & Keep Christ in Christmas

Here’s wishing all council members and their families a wonderful and safe Thanksgivng.  During our charitable events we see and meet so many people who are less fortunate than us. As the message our Grand Knight quoted during the Awards night says, “We are Our Brothers Keepers”.  Please keep them in your prayers and remember they are God’s children also as we acknowledge all that we have to be thankful for.

Brother Knights this coming weekend, Sat. Nov 29 and Sun. Nov. 30 we will be selling Christmas cards after all the masses.  Please take a few minutes after the Mass you attend to stop by and lend a hand and /or purchase of box of cards.  What a great way to begin our Advent season.

Tootsie Roll Drive

Our Lady of Grace Council will be conducting a Tootsie Roll Drive this weekend at Wal-Mart on Malabar Rd.  The drive will take place Friday from 9 AM until 9PM and Saturday 9 AM until 5PM.  If you haven’t signed up for a particular time don’t let that stop you.  Come down anytime and join in.  It’s a great time for a great cause.
