Grand Knight’s Column
May is here, spring has sprung, grass is growing First Communions are being celebrated, marriages are happening (congratulations Tom Murray & Cathy), the Kentucky Derby is on MAY 6, and MEMORIAL DAY PARADE is on MAY 29TH. Also, I will be attending the State Convention in Columbus on that weekend, getting back home on the 28th. One of our members from the Diocese is running for State Office and I will be there to support Nick Gresko for this. Speaking of the convention, the final turn in date for the raffle tickets is May 10th, so Matt McGuire can get them in to the drawing. NOTE: ANY LATE TURN-INS I WILL TAKE TO COLUMBUS. Also, I received a call from St. Anthony of Padua Church, and they are requesting Knights from all the Lorain Councils to come to their church on MAY 13TH (Saturday) to march, pray, etc. in honor of OUR LADY OF FATIMA. They request for those that want to participate to show up at the church at 1:45 PM. There will be a parade, novena, rosary during this celebration, and we can participate in any or all of the ceremony. The Kentucky Derby soiree will start at 5:00 P.M. with fried chicken and side to be served up by MIKE ELBERT and PAT POWERS. Donations will be accepted (but I strongly urge that you donate $5/per meal with seconds free). But again, donations will be appreciated. At 7:00 PM our in residence musician JOEL FRITZ will provide entertainment for the evening. Come when you can and enjoy the day.
The MEMORIAL DAY PARADE usually kicks off at 10:00 AM, so those that want to march/ride please show up to the club by 8:45 AM. NOTE: WE ARE IN DIRE NEED OF A FLAG BEARER TO LEAD, SO ANYONE WITH PRIOR MILITARY EXPERIENCE (or can keep in step) PLEASE INFORM ME OR JOHN JURCO THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO HELP. Finally we are very proud of one of our own, RICKY GORNEK, who has been named LORAIN CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION OFFICER OF THE YEAR. Ricky is now in the running for being named the State Correction Office of the Year. He is one of 29 nominees eligible for this prestigious award. We are very proud of you Ricky, and good luck. A lot of people do not know or understand the difficulty of his job, so thank him when you see him. I almost forgot to thank Amanda for her organizing the kids Easter Party. More about this included in this newsletter.
