I would like to thank all my brothers and sisters for all the help given this past year. It has not gone unnoticed. Our church, community, friends and even lives have definitely benefitted from your work with the handicapped, the kids and the veterans, to name a few. This column is not big enough to list all the things you have done. You have my deepest, heartfelt thanks.
- We started December with the setup of the Nativity outdoors at Holy Family Church. It is absolutely beautiful!
On the 18th, we had our Council/Assembly Christmas party. It was unbelievable how much home cooked food was donated. No one, and I mean NO ONE went hungry. Awesome food! Many new toys were donated for Loaves and Fishes families. After our meal, we were serenated by our Comical Council Choir. We closed out the evening with a chinese auction which is always a great time. There were many laughs and all got exactly what they wanted, I'm sure!
Which reminds me: Our Council went to several elderly homes and sang Christmas carols. This year, Christmasy type jokes were read between songs. Bells and silly hats played tunes. We were told thank you by many elderly as they told us they really needed to laugh. (Even though the jokes were a little corny. lol) And, Santa Claus came to each event. Santa even passed out candy canes everywhere we visited. Santa also passed out presents to the kids at Loaves and Fishes.
We then set up the trees and nativity in the hall. A week after that, we set up all the trees and the nativity in the church.
Next, we set up over 450 chairs in the hall for the childrens' Christmas Mass. The following Monday, we put them all away.
On the 28th, a First Degree Exemplification was held at Holy Family. It was hosted by Council 2358 of Lisbon. They had 5 candidates. Lewiston Councils 106, Holy Family Council 10019 and Sabattus Council 13181 each had 1 candidate. I would like to welcome Jim Moran who became a Knight at Holy Family Council 10019.

Saturday, January 9 at 9am, we will be putting away the Nativity. It will be brought from Holy Family to the Holy Cross garage again to be stored until next Christmas season.
