Greetings Brother Knights;


August is almost gone and the kids are starting school – Where did the summer go?

     I hope everybody was able to take a little time off this summer.  What about our Seton Fest held Sunday, August 6, 2005?     I’m not sure how we came out financially, but from our attendance and fun had by all points of view, I’d say we did pretty well!

     The dining room was full all afternoon and everyone you talked to commented on the excellent meal.  The pork was prepared by our own Knights, Fred Cross, Dean Carpenter, and Tom Berglund.  The guys were up all night Saturday night making sure things were done to perfection.  The Knights ran Bingo and Joe Mau had the tables full of players.  Gene Wicht ran the beer garden.  Raffle prizes were given away after the Auction.  The Auction went well, Lyle Bostrom and his crew, as always did a professional job.  Everything seemed to click along pretty smoothly.  It makes me proud to be a Knight when you see all the involvement from the Knights, their spouses, and don’t forget their kids.  A special thank you goes out to all those who helped make the Seton Fest a success!! 

     The Pine County Demolition Derby was held on Saturday afternoon, August 6th, 2005.  The main attraction was the Knights Food and Beer concessions worked by many of our Knights from St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.  We assisted the Pine City Knights.  Everything was coordinated by Scott Skalicky, and I know it wasn’t easy because the Derby was held the night before the Seton Fest and Scott got over a dozen Knights to help.  Anyhow, the Fair was busy and the beer and brat sales were excellent. The Pine City guys are always generous to our council for helping them out Saturday night.  Most sincere thanks go out to all who helped and to Scott for making it all happen.  Specifically, all the men need to thank their spouses for their help at the Fair Saturday – ladies we greatly appreciate your help as well as your moral support of the Knights.

    Remember, the Knights are taking the servers to the Saints game on Sunday, August 28th.  We have 18 servers signed up to go!  In addition to the servers we have 10 kids (server’s siblings) and 20 adults going to the game.  We plan to go early and tailgate for awhile before the game.  We’ve got lots of fun things planned so it should be a fun day for all.  I look forward to seeing you the game.

     Our next regular meeting will be held on Thursday, August 25th, at 7:00p.m.


Thank you and God bless you!

Todd Nelson, Grand Knight
