Webmaster's Note:

During the time of COVID 19, many organizations are having issues with their fundraisers. Quite often a dinner is one way of raising money. This can be done as a "Drive Thru" Dinner. The event is announced with a menu and price along with methods of payment. When the day arrives, customers drive up to a location and receive their pre-packaged meals to take home. This has been successful for some organizations I know, so I wanted to pass it on.

If you have other ideas for different fundraisers, feel free to pass along the tips and I'll post them.

A Patriotic Lesson from Holy Trinity School

This past week a group of young people at Holy Trinity School provided a lesson for all of us about patriotism and our heroes known as Veterans. Here are the speeches written by some of the students.

Veterans from the local area as well as the 4th degree of the Knights of Columbus were invited to share in this celebration. If you are a patriotic American, history buff or especially a Veteran, plan to attend next year. Watch this website for details and you won't be sorry you attended.
