Grand Knight's Message
The picture above is of a degree ceremony in 1906 (I believe) and although styles have changed as well as the required attire, these men have the same focus as each of you. With that in mind, there is a third degree in Raleigh atSt. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, 11401 Leesville Road, Raleigh, NC 27613. Candidates and observers must register between 11:00 AM and 11:30 AM. More information is below including a signup. We do have one member from the council attending, Tom Blum and we would be thrilled to have others join.
The Apex Peakfest is just around the corner and we have already been busy planning for and securing our space. The peakfest will be on Saturday May 7th. We will need volunteers on Friday evening and then from early Saturday morning for setup until mid evening for clean up. I will send a signup as we get closer.
For those that did not attend the STMM SpringFest, it was a huge success for the PSO and for our local council. Brother Matt Maiers led a small team of Brothers that cooked hamburgers and hotdogs. The results were as follows:
100 burgers sold148 hot dogs sold
Total gross profit from event: $716.00
Minus applied cost...total net: $461.78
We believe that this can grow in the future to an easy one day event. The success was mostly due to Matt's ability to work with the PSO and be the only food vendor available! Great work also by:
Dan and Courtney Cantrell
