First I would like to wish all a great Fathers’ Day. This got
me thinking about being a Knight and a father. Would some of you not
have joined if you were not a Dad? One of the most reasons I hear about
why you became a Knight was because of my kids. You all show what is to
be a great Dad as well as a great Knight. To show your faith in action
and be able to show what it is to have faith and love for love of Christ
and help those in need. Have a great Fathers’ Day it is well deserved.
The Addison Township as opened a new food pantry at the Addison
township offices. We have been contacted by the township to see if we
would like to pick a day and to man that day. I and another brother
Knight have gone the past two Thursdays and would like to see if this is
something we could do as a council. I have also contacted Holy Ghost
council to see if they would like to join us. Wood Dale is part of
Addison Township and Wood Dale will also benefit for the pantry. They
are very interested in helping. Itasca would also take part.
