Faith In Action
A Message from Our Deputy Grand Knight
Council members have been very busy during the month of October with all our activities listed below:
Bro. Rob Burke and Bill Taylor are shown delivering the BIG CHEQUE to Hospice Simcoe! Proceeds from the Annual Joseph B. Whelan Golf Tournament, and the Blueberry Pancake Festival at Barrie Hill Farms, combined to make a $10,000.00 donation!
Great work Barrie Council 1626!
On the Thanksgiving weekend our annual Food Drive was held with a total of 3558 lbs of food being collected. Cash donations and gift cards were also collected for the Barrie Food Bank. Thank you to all the Brothers that assisted and a special thanks to Bro. Ron Hachey for organizing this successful event.
This year’s Oktoberfest was held on Saturday October 13th with ticket sales of 140 people. The Harmonie Brass Showband was featured and a German-style meal served. A Supporter Campaign was introduced that included advertising for businesses at the Oktoberfest event and on the Council 1626 website. Six local businesses participated and their names will be included in the Caravel and on the Council 1626 website. Please support them!
The annual Rose Sunday was held on October 20/21st weekend and featured the sale of lapel roses. Thank you to Bro. Geoff Bond for organizing. A donation will be made to Birthright Barrie to recognize this event.
