Annual Roast Beef Dinner
The Knights of Columbus and the Catholic Women's League held a super successful Roast Beef Dinner on Saturday Oct. 13th.  It was so successful that, in fact, we RAN OUT OF FOOD! Fortunately we had plenty of wonderful desserts! This shortfall will not happen again!
This event raised a total of $1 815.00 including $173.00 raised by the auctioning of desserts at the end of the dinner. The proceeds are going to the church to help with the cost of the new furnace.

June 6th BBQ
The annual BBQ went over very well with everyone cooking their steaks to perfection. Our C.W.L. provided desserts to everyone's delight.  Funds raised will be used to reduce the loan for the Basement Renovations.

The breakfast was well attended, with Mothers receiving a carnation. Lots of compliments for a hearty breakfast. Donations will be used for the Basement Renovations.

Irish Night
This annual event was coordinated by John Brennan and took place on March 10th. Music was provided by the Lorne Daly Band (Rick O'Shea). Again this year the light lunch was Smoked Meat sandwiches. Funds raised will again go to pay for the renovations the Knights did to the Church Hall.
