The April meeting was called to order by the Grand Knight at 7:04 pm, followed
       by the “Our Father” and “Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag”. All officers were present
       except the Advocate, Chancellor, Inside Guard and 1st Year Trustee.  A total of
      15 knights were present.  The minutes from the March Meeting were accepted after
       a correction was made by Randy Friga.  A motion was made by Ben Francka to accept
       the minutes including the correction, seconded by John Kubicek. A vote carried
       the motion.

   From the Grand Knight:

1.  The Grand Knight mentioned that Phillip Neill wanted to become a knight.
     Randy Friga motioned to accept him for a First Degree.  A vote carried the motion.

2.  The Grand Knight mentioned the officers for the coming year.  The officers will
     be the same except for the following: First Year Trustee = Keith Norton and Second
     Year Trustee = John Wooldridge.

3.  A discussion concerning the local members for State Deputy was initiated by Randy
     Friga and who our Council Representatives should vote for.  The 2 members were Ron
     Berger and Greg Stratton.  Other members in the discussion were Joe Schumaker,
     John Wooldridge, Matt Siegmann, and Ben Francka.  After the discussion there was
     a motion to cast our votes for one of the candidates.  Except for one vote against, the
     vote on the motion was unanimous.  A few days later Tom Nelson contacted us and
     gave news that Greg Stratman was the new State Deputy.

4.  The Grand Knight mentioned the Pope’s visit to the U. S. and that Bishops, John and
     James were introduced to the Pope.  He also mentioned there was a DVD on the Pope’s
     visit for sale.

5.  The Grand Knight thanked all those who helped at the last Knight’s Breakfast and
     mentioned we did not make much money on it but that we had a lot of food to help
     us in the next pancake breakfast in May.

6.  The Grand Knight thanked the Deputy Grand Knight, Ryan Neill for transporting Matt
     Siegmann, Dale Decker and Johnny Bueno to obtain their 2nd and 3rd Degrees.

7.  The Grand Knight also mentioned he was still working on our next Chaplin. 



               Possibilities include Frs. Rudolpho and Phillip.





       From the Chaplin:  

        No report---no official Chaplin yet.




     Treasurer's and Financial Secretary’s Reports:


        The Treasurer reported on the bills and money received from activities after the last
        council meeting.  Also, he mentioned that financial condition of the Council was in
        good condition. 






     Unfinished and New Business:

       1.  A lengthy discussion developed concerning the Mons. John Westheus “Sunset Stroll”
            to raise tuition or scholarships for the Catholic Schools.  The Grand Knight suggested
            we keep the first annual stroll “low keyed”.  The discussion included various ideas
            concerning the amount of money donation or fee for participants, food at the activity,
            etc.  Ben Francka was going to suggest a date of May, 16th from 6:00 pm to 12:00
            midnight to the Parish Council. It was suggested that the details of the “Stroll” be
            decided by the “Stroll” committee.


       2.  A meeting of the committee for the “Stroll” met after the Council Meeting to formulate
            the details.  After the meeting, Ben Francka was to supply the Council’s Recorder
            with details of the “Stroll” activities to be placed on the Council’s web page. It was also
            mentioned that the “ladies auxiliary” was going to help with the “Stroll” activities. 


      3.  Matt Siegmann suggested that we might possibly ask former members of the disbanded
           MSU Knight’s Council if they might want to join our Council.  He was going to look into






      From the Insurance Agent:

           The Field Agent, Joe Schumaker, discussed how Supreme invests our monies, which
           included bond and life insurance investments.




       From the District Deputy: 

           Was not present—No report.




       Pray for Special People:

1.      An e-mail from Tom Nelson before the news of Bill Kaufmann’s death requested
the Knight’s pray for him.

2.      It was also suggested that we pray for our priests.

3.       Also, it was mentioned we pray for one of the members of the “auxiliary” who’s
child is in neo-natal care.




         Closing of Meeting:


         The Grand Knight closed the meeting and led the Council in the “Hail Mary”, and
         “Glory Be”.
