Council Meeting
Thursday, March 10th, 2022 – 7:00 PM

Brother Knights,

As our Grand Knight is in St. John on vacation, Matt sent me a clip about Lent to include, the rest was up to the editor.

What is Lent

This Lent please make an effort to pray more.  Especially for things going on in our world: the Ukraine crisis especially, for our world leaders, for our church leaders, for the USA and for families in need.  We seem to be in a crisis situation on all fronts we need to ask GOD for guidance.

Our Lenten Fish Dinners are now in full swing.  If you haven’t tried these, please check them out.  We had over 800 dinner sold on Friday, March 4th , that’s not a record, but close.  The dinners are Perch, Walleye or Shrimp with French Fries and Cole Slaw.  We have drive-thru, Dine-in or take out dinners for $13.00 and Onion Rings for $6.00 a half pound.  We are serving from 5:30 – 7:30 pm.  Our prices had to increase due to the costs going up, but still a great deal for a great meal.  Come and give it a try.

From the Editors Desk

I had my say taking over for our GK for the month.  One final note: we are getting closer to spring and the Knights golf league is meeting on March 30, 7:00 pm at the hall.  If interested in golfing, please come and check it out.  There is also room for subs.  If you do not have a partner, we will probably be able to arrange one for you.

Vivat Jesus,

Thought for the Month

The Cross

A young man was at the end of his rope, seeing no way out, he dropped to his knees in prayer

“Lord, I can’t go on,” he said. “I have too heavy a cross to bear.”

The Lord replied, “My son, if you can’t bear its weight, just place your cross inside this room.

Then, open that other door and pick out any cross you wish.”

The man was filled with relief and said, “Thank you Lord,” and he did as he was told.

Upon entering the other room, he saw many crosses; some so large the tops were not visible. Then, he spotted a tiny cross leaning against a far wall.

“I’d like that one, Lord,” he whispered. The Lord replied, “My son, that is the cross you just brought in.”

When life’s problems seem overwhelming, it helps to look around and see what other people are coping with. You may consider yourself far more fortunate than you imagined.

Joke(s) of the Month

Help Needed

I arrived early to the restaurant and the manager asked, “Do you mind waiting a bit?”

I replied, “Not at all.”

“Good,” he said, “Take these drinks to table nine.”

Had Room for Some Random Thoughts

I was going to quit all my bad habits for the new year, but then I remembered that nobody likes a quitter.

Someone ripped the 5th month out my new 2022 calendar! I’m dismayed!

My goal for 2022 is to accomplish the goals of 2021 which I should have done in 2020 because I made a promise in 2019 and planned in 2018.

My new year’s resolution is to read more.  So, I’ve permanently turned on the TV subtitles.

You know you’ve grown up when a nap no longer feels like a punishment but a reward.

When you die, which body part dies last? The pupils. They dilate.

Two hats were hanging on a hat rack in the hallway. One hat said to the other: “You stay here; I’ll go on a head.”

I wanted to marry an English teacher when she got out of jail. But you can’t end a sentence with a proposition.

Put “eat chocolate” at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you’ll get one thing done.

I never carpooled to work as I was always afraid I’d get trapped in a tunnel with strangers. My therapist called it Carpool Tunnel Syndrome.

On rainy days, my wife thinks it’s pathetic when I stare through the window. It would be less pathetic if she just let me in.

The grass may look greener on the other side, but it still has to be mowed.
