February is generally dedicated to the Holy Family. So we pray that those who are born in the month of February may be guided and protected by the Holy Family — Jesus, Mary and Joseph — throughout this month and all of 2021.
A Blessing For You:
Loving God, you created all the people of the world
and you know each of us by name,
We thank you for our Brother Knights who, this month, celebrate their birthdays.
Bless them with your love and friendship
that they may grow in wisdom, knowledge, and grace.
May they love their family always and be faithful to their friends.
Thank you John McCulla for once more organizing the food collection for St. Peter Catholic Church Food Pantry, and thanks to all who participated on Saturday.
Especially want to thank Brother Stivers for loaning us once more, and Brother Russo for driving, the trailer. It was great seeing all of you, and meeting new Brother Bob Fout!
As usual, the collection was a great success…I have not seen the trailer so filled up with groceries and personal care items, in any of the drives I have participated in, to date. Given that we estimate the food drives to typically raise $3000 in value for the charities, this bodes well that this number was significantly bested. We also collected $800 in gift cards/cash donations.
Here is the list of the Brothers who helped out. I am sorry if I left anyone off the list.
Special shout-out to John, Bob, Frank, and Ron who dropped off the goods!
For those who have never participated in these events, it gives you a great feeling to help others, and to talk to Brothers not just on Zoom. The time really flies by, even when it is cold!
We are all eyeing Feb. 27th for the next drive, so stay tuned!
