Council Meeting

Brother Knights,

As we are getting back to our lives as we once knew them, more opportunities are becoming available for us to use our talents to help the community.  I would encourage you to get out there and be part of the giving.  Throughout the fall and into the winter we have a number of events that have a wide range of tasks and every task is key to making our organization run smoothly.  If anybody is interested in helping at an event or has an event that they think the Knights of Columbus should be part of, please give me a call, text, or email.  Matt Carlton 231-740-4651 or

Believe or not, a few of us are still golfing at Eagle Island Golf on Thursday morning at 9:45 am. As long as the weather holds, we will plan on golfing. Come on out and join the fun, but dress warmly. I think we might be at the end of our fun!
