St. Clare's Junque and Jewels setup

The St. Clare's Men's Basketball club is taking care of laying down the floor; table loading will start at 8:00am if you wish to help.  Theresa feels like she might have enough bodies and the big trailer is being donated again to bring tables down from the shed- but the more hands the faster it will get done.

In other news, if you'd rather clean out your own house rather than help with tables, donations will be gratefully accepted from noon to 8pm on Saturday, and from 8am to 8pm Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.  There are of course other ways to help, including pricing and sorting, and everybody who donates time gets to take part in the pre-sale on Thursday.

June 10 breakfast at St. Clare's, blueberries, officers

Hi Brother Knights!

It's still 11 days off, but this is a first reminder to sign up for service at the St. Clare breakfast on June 10. 

I also wanted to thank Tom Monaco for donating a huge lot of blueberries!  They look plump and ripe!  In the past, Ted's blueberries have been a huge hit.  Thanks Ted and Tom!

Another subject... please consider volunteering to being an officer for our council.  There are several vacancies from top to bottom.  We will be taking nominations at our next meeting on June 19.  Your involvement has been beneficial to our parishes and a good example to our kids.  Please continue this commitment for charitable works.  Thanks, Ken
