Rose Lapel Sale

Its been a while since I last posted on this Blog. I hope to keep this up to date going forward with current news concerning our council. This weekend we collect funds for the National Life Center in Woodbury to assist unwed mothers after all masses @ St. Agnes Church in Blackwood. I plan to attend the Chapter Christmas Dinner and meeting this Wed at Santa Maria Council. Several of us will accompany a group of brother knights who will take their 3rd Degree Friday, also at Santa Maria. Thursday is our normal scheduled business meeting starting 8:00pm OLOH Parish Center.

End of Columbian Year

We have a chance of making Star Council for the 2009-2010 Columbian Year. Star Council is the highest and most prestigious award a council can achieve. We met our membership quota (17), our insurance goal (6) and I believe we ran enough service programs to be elible for Columbian Award which is given to councils that run at least 4 events in all the major categories. All forms have been submitted to Supreme, we are crossing our fingers and waiting their decision.

New Blog

Hello. Not sure if anyone is reading this blog if you are you are more than welcome to comment. Going forward I hope to publish a quick sentence or two on what is happening with the council as they occur. A lot is happening and thought this would be a good place to keep a record of current events. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

Successful April

We wrapped up a successful April for our council. Some of our events were our semi-annual hoagie sale to support local seminarians, Annual Drive with People with Intellectual Disabilities, Hosted an Open House and 1st Degree Exemplification where we welcomed 9 new members and sponsored 2 priests at Pride in Priests Dinner. We also started our Scholorship Raffle that continues until June. We are not resting as May brings our Mother's Day carnation sale to support the National Life Center and our annual awards banquet. Its a great time to be a member of Holy Crusaders!

Happy Easter to all! We just wrapped up a successful membership drive led by Tom Conway and we hosted 519 parishioners at our Parish Appreciation Breakfast. Thanks to John Colaiaini for organizing the event. Our council sponsored a new seminarian and voted to sponsor a Blackwood Little League Team. Looking forward to a busy April where we are organizing many council and charitable activities.
