Thank you
On behalf of your St. Joseph Knights of Columbus we want to THANK ALL of our parish family members and their extended family and friends who took time to help in our food booth at the Sarpy County Fair again this year. Also, thanks to all who supported us by stopping by and eating at the booth. We can't thank the workers enough. No matter what the task you were asked to do, you did it (including learning to make charges on the tablet computers). Without you we CANNOT handle such a big undertaking! When you hear of all the good things that the Knights do, just remember you are also part of it because of your help and support. Thanks again. Ralph and Tim

The business may need the letter for tax purposes, and the Guild would like the donor form filled out and returned to them. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year, so we appreciate any donations.
