Message from the Grand Knight
The 36th Annual Missouri Knights of Columbus Horseshoe Tournamant was held August 19, 20 and 21st at our Council. A BIG THANK YOU to those who worked days, weeks and months preparing for this tournament and to those who worked during the tournament and to those who worked after the tournament cleaning up and taking down the tents, pits, and other items. It took a lot of work by a lot of members and their wives to make the tournament a success. I especially want to thank our chairman Mike Miller and co-chairman Cody Essner. If I could give them a raise I would.
I am proud of our Council
