MINNESOTA COURT CHALLENGES KNIGHTS TO
Court St. Bernard #886, Lismore, Minnesota, issued a "food fight"
challenge to the St. Anthony Knights of Columbus. The friendly
competition between the men and women was to see which
organization could collect the most items for the local food shelf. The
group with fewer items would prepare and serve a parish meal after
Saturday evening Mass. Everyone was encouraged to join the spirited
competition by donating non-perishable food, personal care articles
and household items. At its conclusion, visiting priest Rev. James Bream
declared that the amount of items donated was "too close to call" so
it was determined to be a tie. Therefore, the Daughters and Knights
made a joint effort to provide an evening of fun, food and fellowship to
conclude the competition. Pictured with the donated items are Knights
Matt Loosbrock, Tom Diekmann and Frank Kemper, and court members
Shanelle Henning, Stephani Diekmann and Lisa Diekmann.
