BIG THANKS

A HUGE THANK YOU to my Brother Knights, to St. Gerard Circle, to RE Youth Group, to the Altar Guild, to Ladies Sodality and to any who donated time, talent, and treasure to make our first parish Oktoberfest FAMILY Festival a big success!!!  Although the finances have yet to be settled, it looks like we did make a few thousand above expenses to contribute to the parish parking lot project.
 
I would be greatly remiss if I did not thank a few who went well above the call of duty in terms of their contributions (I failed to publicly thank you last night in front of the group and for that I also owe an apology). So a special THANK YOU to the Dave Rak-Kinonen family, George, Myra and Robert Gonzales, Pete Hofmann, Hans and Franz (also known as John Armstrong and Greg Miztka), Jim Hunt, Tom Kato, Bill Steinkemper, Rob and Lisa Abeln, Dennis and Judy Wagner, Bill Drummey, Richard and Edna Armanini, Nick Lozzi, Jim McGrath, Bernis and Carol Hageman, Maureen Pass, Dee Gordon, Bonnie Vance, Maria Tari, Antonio and Andrew Rivas, Bob and Eileen LaCroix, Julie Carlberg, Ellen Abbadessa, Doug McCarty, Wayne Conway, and or course Fr. Hormann and Fr. Rafael.  I am sure my addled mind missed a number of heros but I wish you all a great thank you.
God has bless Corpus Christi with a great body of talent, vested in some very wonderful people.
 
May God Bless you as we go into the Holiday Season and always!!!

Car & Bike Show - Info & volunteer signup

Brothers,
      Due to continuing home printer issues, I cannot print out the registration forms and flyers and the volunteer spreadsheets for this upcoming event.
FYI it is scheduled for 10/19 in the Corpus Christi north parking lot. It is a FREE event to come and see the cars and bikes and trucks on display.  There will be food, music, prizes, raffles, a 50/50 raffle and really spectacular cars. Trucks and bikes to view.  There also will be a demonstration of a robotic demolition provided by the National Guard.  Did I mention you and your FAMILY can view all of this for FREE!!!  The event is opened from 10 – 2.  Last year we had more than a 100% increase over the 2011 number of entries and are hoping for a large increase in entries again this year. Also, there is a Shopping Bazaar being held in the parish center at the same time so you can visit and shop as well.
   If you wish to display your car, truck or bike, there is a $20 entry fee – includes t-shirt, and goodie bag.  There are a number of categories of trophies to be awarded. 
The proceeds are split between the "Vets Foundation" and the "K of C Wheel Chair Campaign."
   Volunteers (Knights and or families and friends) are needed:  Volunteer Signup is first reply first signed up!!!
7:00 AM to 10:00  Set-up (8 needed)
