I give thanks to my God always on your account for the grace of God
bestowed on you in Christ Jesus, that in him you were enriched in every
way, with all discourse and all knowledge, as the testimony to Christ
was confirmed among you, so that you are not lacking in any spiritual
gift as you wait for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ. He will
keep you firm to the end, irreproachable on the day of our Lord Jesus
Christ. God is faithful, and by him you were called to fellowship with
his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. (CORINTHIANS)

I’m I doing for the right reason or for “look at me look at what I did”.
I always try to remember that we should be doing what we do for Jesus
and what he his telling us to do. So us as Knights let’s keep doing what
we do but let’s not forget the true reason we joined the Knights in the
Tootsie Roll drive is September 14-15.
We will be doing 3 corners and two stores on that Friday and Saturday.
We of course need all hands on deck for this fund raiser. This is one of

We once again will be having a
Fall Wine & Beer
Tasting. This was great fun last year and we ate, drank and had a ton of
fun in the process. The wine distributor will have a selection for a

also. Contact me or Mike Provinzino for tickets. Mike’s email and phone
are 630.728.6786 /email@example.com. Money raised from this event

needs for a chance for independence.
Remember we are a
great council because of you.
