DATE CORRECTION:   DuBois Knights of Columbus will hold a regular meeting on  July 9 at 7 PM.  Tom Nikrant;

CDA Meeting:  I pray that everyone is keeping safe and healthy!  I sure do miss our meetings and visiting with each and everyone of you.  I know we don't normally meet in July, but since we had to cancel a few meetings and we have a couple of things we need to get taken care of, I have decided that we will hold a meeting on Monday, July 20 at 7 PM.  This should be a short meeting.  Two of the items we need to discuss are the officer elections and the financial review.  We will discuss the birthday dinner.  We will be socially distanced and will not be serving refreshments.  If you don't feel comfortable coming, that is totally understandable.  Until then, I will keep praying for everyone.  Judy
