Knights of Columbus


Readville Council 2980


November, 2001



Brother Knights:


        Here’s hoping this letter finds all members and their families happy and healthy as we head into Thanksgiving. 


        The final numbers are in on this year’s Tootsie Roll Drive, and it was a resounding success.  The total raised was $1751.25, the most in recent memory.  Special thanks to Paul Nolan for running this year’s drive on very short notice.  Thanks also to John Signorello, Dick Gilooly, Arthur Rich, Jerry, Elizabeth, and Joe Grenier, Lou Foley, Charlie Senior, Paul, Ryan, and Peter Tucker, Paul Sheehan, Frank Chapman, and Ray Foley for their collection efforts and to Bill Jurewich, Mike Goff, Brendan Flynn, and John Wood for counting the money.  Your efforts are greatly appreciated.


       As I mentioned in the last letter, the next council meeting will be Tuesday, November 13 at 7:30 pm.  We resume our normal meeting schedule with the December meeting which will be held December 4 at 7:30 pm.  I look forward to your input.  Remember to call me about any ideas you have at (617) 361-5633 or you can send an e-mail to


       As always, I appreciate your support and look forward to a great year.
