We are considering holding some open meetings, inviting wives and non-members. These meetings may precede, follow or replace a regular meeting and cover topics such as: insurance presentations by Fraternal Benefits advisor Mark Bateman ultrasound contribution recognition for Teens in Ministry (TIM).

Council Information Sessions in our wifi hot spot in the Council Home started in January. They will continue on a monthly or bi-monthly basis as interest dictates.

The next attraction will be a review of the Council Web Site by webmaster Bob Elliott. This will be a chance to learn about features and capabilities and to offer feedback to Bob. Take a look at the web site and send comments to the webmaster. We will offer the session this spring.

Long Green Valley will sell beer, as is our custom, at the Spring Fling on May 9-11.
Deputy Grand Knight Bob Renshaw will lead our Marygold Program to distribute potted marigolds to Mothers who chose life. We will pick up the flowers from the State, re-pot them and hand them out at masses on Mother's Day weekend of May 11-12.

Our Membership Recruiting Drive will be the Ministry minute on the weekend of May 11-12 when we will speak from the pulpit.

Our good works will be in evidence at the Spring Fling and Marygold program that same weekend. We need to have a big recruiting day to make our membership goal.

Our annual Ironbirds game will be Saturday, July 6th and includes a buffet, ball game and fireworks, all for $35 per ticket (under 5 free). We committed for 42 tickets. Bring your checkbook to a meeting.

Hall Rentals: Have folks coming to visit for the Holidays, but not enough room? Consider renting our Council Home for a family get together. Contact Grand Knight Joe Wenderoth
