Council 610 is devastated by the news of the passing of our brother and friend, Chad Chranloger, who suffered a fatal heart attack this week. Chad's contribution goes beyond his dedicated volunteer efforts--he was a good friend and will be missed by all who were fortunate to know and love him. Our prayers go out to Brent, Kim, and the entire family. Funeral mass will be held Friday, November 17, at 11:00 AM at OLPH.

Patrick Ryan Hall Renovation is in it's final stages!! Refurbished Depression-era Pool tables, poker table, sports bar, stocked fridge, 70-inch TV--it should be both a great recruiting tool and something for all of use to use and enjoy. Stay tuned for news on a Grand Reopening and Dedication Party.
Continue to pray for the souls of our departed, especially Chad Chranloger, Erma Chranloger, and Joy Daniel.
I am thankful for all of you, my brothers in the Knights of Columbus--you continue to bless my life in so many ways!
