In the month of February we have a couple of other event coming besides the 50s Sock Hop on Feb. 10th. On February 16th, we start our Lenten Fish Dinners every Friday in Prendergast Hall at 5 pm to 6:30 pm for a total of five dinners.
On February 17th -Saturday, our Council will host a San Diego Chapter meeting in Prendergast Hall at 10 am. Included will be a continental breakfast. On that same day, there will be a 4th Degree exemplification at the Town & Country Resort Hotel in Mission Valley. Any members who would like to receive this degree, please see Br.

As you can see, we have still a lot to do for the next couple of months. I am sure all of you brothers will work together as you've done so well throughout this Columbian year. Anyone who still needs to make their second or third degree, please let me know and I will let you know when the next ceremonies are happening and get you to them.
Remember, to wear your K of C blue shirts (button-down or polo) and name tags/plates at church and if you haven't been to a meeting in a while-please do. we'd like to see you! And if you know of a brother Knight who hasn't been to a meeting in a while-bring him with you! Vivat Jesus!
