Council Home Renovations
You will own, for the duration of the event, one Square of Prime Georgetown Land.
At 1:00 P.M., one or more sheep will be released into a large pen, away from the spectators, but containing three judges in top hats and tails.
The pen will have been lined-off into squares matching your deed, with numbers for each deed (randome numbering). The first square that gets 'graced' by a legal sheep pebble pile (see reverse side of deed) will win the First prize!
So, if you own deed 150, and the first legal 'pile'
is in square 150, you win $500 dollars. Pretty cool!
Bert Hanlon Stringing Lights in the Trees above the Sheep Pen:
You do not have to be present to win, but we'll have some nice happenings in the Council home, and you can even watch by remote TV to see the event (so you can stay warm inside...or at least, that's the thing we're working on). Unique, Fun. and the sheep are sooo friendly, that they told us last week that they are looking forward to meeting you beforehand, and vacationing from Alan and Maureen Aulson's Great Rock Farm for a bit at the event on Jan. 12, 2014.
Deeds available from many Knights or at the Council Home most weekends.
Contact Alan Aulson, Bert Hanlon, Ray McManus, or Lonnie Brennan
YES, WE HAVE some deeds left ....they are going fast....

Council Home Renovations
Rough Electrical has been signed off.
We await the plumbing, which is lagging.
Folks have asked about the Council Home.
It's simple: the building was severely damaged by water which ran over a sub 17 degree weekend, saturating the lower hall, many layers of flooring, flooding the basement, damaging the kitchen, the walls, the electrical work, etc. It was quite substantial.
Fortunately, the insurnace policy provides for two things:
1. Re-build to what was there before the loss incident, with similar materials etc.
(re-install the floor, walls, kitchen, etc.)
Install any new things (beams, electrical, plumbing) which are required to meet today's building code requirements. This has been quite an event, as it means new beams were needed, new supports, new electrical, new bathroom (handicapped compliant) with all the required additional plumbing (extensive) and electrical (extensive) and moving of the current heater (another cost) and re-plumbing of same, and re-electrical of same, etc. Oh, and new rear door, and crash bar, and well, you get the idea.
Now, the big question is: Many Groups have had to re-locate to other places over the past year.....we hope to re-open the place to all soon....
In the meantime, members, remember, it's your Council, it's your property.
The Grand Knight Chris Rich, the Deputy Grand Knight Bert Hanlon, and the Warden George Dionne all have keys to the rear door. If you need entry, just ask them. We'll re-group second-week of Jan. and figure out the future..... Lonnie B.

Annual Deceased Members Mass of Remembrance
On Saturday November 16th at the 4:30 Mass
the Knights of Columbus 6064 celebrated the
Annual Deceased Members Mass of remembrance.
It is important to remember our fallen brothers
especially in the month of November
when we celebrate All Saints and All Souls.
Deputy Grand Knight Bert Hanlon was assisted by
past Grand Knight Joe Soucy and Brother Bill McDonald
for the ceremony.
Prayers were read and candles lit as the names of our fallen brothers were read.
Approximately 15 brother knights attended this Mass. Several of them commented on the beauty and necessity of this event. Additionally several parishioners expressed thanks to the knights for remembering their loved ones.
Father of Mercy and God of Peace, hear the humble prayers of your people. We have been saddened by the death of our servant brothers, but grant that we may not mourn as those who have no hope. May we rather see the power of your love at work in all things. Bring eternal light and joy to our love ones in Christ. Help us to believe more firmly that the dead pass from earth into the eternal dwelling place in heaven. On the day of your final appearance in the coming of Jesus, may we all be joined together in your presence, when there will be no more tears or pain but only the full and everlasting joy that comes to those who have served you on earth. We ask this through Christ our Risen Lord and Savior.
Knights Building is CLOSED at this time for any and all usage. Demolition of the first floor, supports, etc. is underway.
