KraemergoldmedalOrders can now be placed for those wonderful products from Kraemer's in Wisconsin. Order forms can be located in the narthex.  You can also view and print the order form on the Knight's web site.  We will have the first delivery of products to the Village sometime in November (date to be determined).  We will also continue to take orders through the winter months, and shipping will occur when we have enough ordered product for the Kraemer Group to make a run from Wisconsin to the Village.

We will maintain some products on hand for instant sales, and that list of products will also be on the Knights of Columbus website.  See Kraemer's Cheese On Hand.  Lastly, we will sell gift boxes for the holidays.

Thank youThank you to everyone who participated in the basket program during 2014!  All who donated to the fund, those who participated in the acquisition and distribution of food from Project Hope and, most of all, those who delivered the baskets.  During the year 144 baskets were delivered:  36 baskets at Easter, 48 baskets at Thanksgiving and 60 baskets at Christmas.  At Christmas 113 children received 449 presents and a certificate for a pair of shoes.  The value of the Christmas Baskets totaled about $25,000. Donations to the basket fund totaled over $11,000 in 2014, including $1,000 from the Knights of Columbus, $1,200 from the Men's Club and $1,780 from the Ladies of the Sacred Heart.  A special thanks to Anna Suttor who donated $500 resulting from the sale of her wonderful jellies.  In addition, $1,500 was donated to the Village Outreach Shoe Fund through donations placed in the shoe box.

With more than 60 individuals participating in delivering baskets and about 435 angels being taken from the tree, this is truly a wonderful example of the willingness to help those in need and the generosity of our parish!
