4. Grand Knight’s Report
• Helped Tracy Mosier move. Bill helped as well. Bill paid $82 to rent a UHaul for her. Thanks to Bill for the donation. The woman had multiple brain tumors, so this was very helpful.
• Fraternal benefits event on Jan 19th. It was advertised frequently but only attended by Mike and Gerry. Guest speaker was a Holy Apostles parishioner, not a Knight. Provides home health care company.
• March for Life. A few knights there. We weren’t marching together because of Covid. Began with Mass for Life followed by the March. Invocation prayer offered by the Bishop. Good event.
