Brothers,
   Our next meeting will be held on Monday, March 2 beginning at 7:00 pm at St. John's Catholic Prep High School. Please note the special location and time. There will be a special presentation from SJCP recognizing our generosity and financial support in past years. I would encourage those or you that are able to attend this meeting, particularly our older brothers that were more actively involved back when we had a Council home on 7th Street. If you need a ride or would like to carpool over, please contact me directly via email or cell phone to make arrangements.
   The address for the school is 3989 Buckeystown Pike, Buckeystown, MD 21717. It is next door to the Post Office on the left side of Route 85 as you are approaching Buckeystown, about a mile past the Railroad tracks. Use the front door entrance. Snacks and beverages will be served, so try to arrive early. DGK Bob Krajewski and Brother Greg Ross will give tours.
Gordon Oliver, the president of SJCP will be on hand to thank the council, and a presentation will also be made in regard to the Baby Bottle $ the students collected for the campaign.
Many of us celebrated Fat Tuesday with a spaghetti dinner in the cafeteria. Many thanks to the wives for baking some delicious treats to share. Also, thanks to the Brothers who arrived early and hung the Lenten banners in the Church.
   Our Lenten Fish Fry Season got off to a rousing start last Friday with nearly 100 dinners served. The new location in the Hall was a welcome change for many attendees. Encourage family, friends and neighbors to attend. Please sign up to help out if you can, or stop by and lend a hand if you have a chance.
   Our monthly SHARE distribution will be held this Saturday, February 28. Please refer to the email sent previously this week for further details.
   On Sunday, March 1st we will be conducting the parish donut social after the 9a and 11a masses in the cafeteria. If you can, stop by and say hello.
