June 2020 Bulletin
Council #1621 Blog * Written by dkinker
Our next meeting is planned to be Tuesday June 16 The business meeting will begin at 7:00 pm
NOTE: Depending on social distancing guidelines the location of the meeting will be determined closer to the meeting date.
We will do our best to keep you informed of the location through the church bulletin, KC Supreme email and/or radio.
With MN State beginning to ease restrictions on “stay at home” directives we hope to resume our monthly meetings beginning with the June gathering. This will be an important meeting as we will be holding the Election of Officers for the 2020-2021 year and voting on Charitable Contributions that have been accumulating.
COUNCIL OFFICER ELECTIONS FOR 2020-2021
The trustees have contacted the following members who have volunteered to run for council election at their position
GRAND KNIGHT – MIKE GRUHOT WARDEN – DEAN ONKEN
DEPTUTY GRAND KNIGHT – KEVIN GRUHOT INSIDE GUARD – DICK PERSOON

Financial Secretary Mike Oney’s position is appointed by Supreme but he is installed annually with all officers.
The election procedure is being handled differently this year due to the stay at home directives. Because we missed the May Council meeting the above slate was not able to be presented. As a member in good standing you are entitled to nominate another person for any of the offices. If you wish to nominate a different member for a position please reply by June 13. Contact: Current Trustees Jeff Wyffels….email firstname.lastname@example.org….phone 507-530-7310
Scott Wernimont…email email@example.com…phone 507-829-3960
LeRoy St Aubin…email firstname.lastname@example.org…phone 507-428-3671
If no additional members are nominated the current slate of officers will be presented for council to cast a white ballot at the June meeting. If additional members are nominated we will have a regular style election by office.
CHANGING OF THE GUARD
We know that all of our local priests of the Bread of Life Faith Community will be leaving to new locations in the New Ulm Diocese. Fr Mark, Fr Todd and Fr Matt are all assigned to new parishes. Fr. Wiering has served as our Council Chaplain the past several years. We may not be able to shake their hands, but we take this time to thank each one of them for their unending spiritual guidance and faith forming leadership. You each will always be remembered and our prayers go with you to your new locations.
We will be welcoming our new arriving priests to begin leading our parishes the first of July. We welcome back Fr. Tony Stubeda and Fr Dennis Labat along with newcomer to the Bread of Life Faith Community Fr. Andrew Michels.
