SJF Essay Contest Winners Get their prizes!


First Place:  #27 Ariana Mazloomi
Second Place Tied:  #17  Luke Malnati #24  Brooks Rice
Third Place Tied:  #5  Fiona Eikenberry #19  James Miller

If you have some time I certainly suggest asking for read access to the dropbox folder and reading the essays.  I learned about Saints and saints- Canonized and living- around the world and in our community- many of which I had never heard of before.  Email seebert42@gmail.com to request access to all the Essay Contest materials.

Deacon Scott Awarded the prizes.  A plaque plate has been ordered to update the plaque in the 8th grade classroom at SJF.

Change in Leadership. Christmas Party Canceled

As First Trustee, I regret to inform the council that our Grand Knight and Deputy Grand Knight have resigned.  Due to this, we are canceling the Grotto visit and the Chili Potluck Christmas Party on December 9. Please stay tuned for additional information, as we work our way through what the future of this council will look like.

Save the Date, December 9

We will meet for our mini-pilgrimage to the Grotto and Christmas Party at 12:30pm at St John Fisher.  Please bring a chili for our chili potluck after the mini-pilgrimage in a self-warming crockpot to share.  We will be hearing from our Essay Contest Winners and we will find out on this day who the Knight of the Year and Family of the Year is.

Essay Contest Winners

We had no entries from St. Clare's, and a couple of ties from St. John Fisher, so unless anybody has any objections I'd like to give the St. Clare's prize money to additional students from SJF, and name five winners in three places.  The Essays this year were excellent, you can e-mail seebert42@gmail.com to get access to the original essays and score sheets.

First Place:  #27 Ariana Mazloomi
Second Place Tied:  #17  Luke Malnati #24  Brooks Rice
Third Place Tied:  #5  Fiona Eikenberry #19  James Miller

If you have some time I certainly suggest asking for read access to the dropbox folder and reading the essays.  I learned about Saints and saints- Canonized and living- around the world and in our community- many of which I had never heard of before.

The winners will be invited to join us on our pilgrimage and rosary at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and our Chili Potluck on December 9th at St. John Fisher.  Further details to be announced.
