THANK YOU: Thank you council for allowing me Jake Rieke to represent you, your council as your Grand Knight. These past couple years have been crazy to say the least, with all that has changed our country and our lives. Being GK has allowed myself to realize and gain so much more respect for all that our council not only does here locally, but state and nationally. Also I come to realize the amount of time members put in behind the scenes that do not get recognized. I’d love to mention each and every one of you, but I would be leaving out someone. So, thank you for all the you do for our council not only behind the scenes but all the take part in either an enormous amount of work and time or just a little bit. Our council is great, its strong and with that, Chris Meyer will be the one to take this council forward and will do a tremendous job. Thank you 2332 and hope to see you at our June meeting
