The ID drive (Tootsie Rolls) will take place on Sept. 19th thru the 21st. I need help from all of the Knights, and their friends and families, if possible. Besides having locations on street corners, which will include Roselle and Irving, Irving and Maple, Nerge and Plum Grove, and any other location that you can think of or can be manned, we will also have certain store fronts for our use. I need help at Harris Bank, Ace Hardware and Walgreens at Lake Street and Springfield Dr., and if you know of an area, please inform me. We have Ray Graham taking all of Doc Dogs, Ace Hardware and Walgreens in Roselle proper.

I will be contacting each Knight, personally, to assign a position where they will be best utilized. If you have a particular spot where you would like to be, please contact me at (630-894-0317) or e-mail me at FRANK DUDA, CHAIRMAN OF THE ID DRIVE


On Saturday, April 7, the Knights of Columbus, along with the St. Walter's Moms Group, sponsored an Easter Egg Hunt for children aged ten and younger on the Parish grounds. The eager kids were very quick to claim 3,000 eggs generously proviced by the Knights. The eggs were purchased from Sunny Bunny Easter Eggs, an organization entirely staffed by individuals with developmental disabilities. In addition to the many Knights who brought their children and grandchildren to hunt for eggs, several Knights graciously assisted with publicity and making sure the event ran smoothly. Brother Doug Gaster provided his creative talent in designing posters and a church Bulletin announcement to promote the hunt. Brothers Jay Schabelski, Bill Stolpe, Bill Gonzalez, John Baumgart, and Terry Clark assisted in setting up the hunt area and directing participants and their families. And finally, the Easter bunny took time out to pose for pictures on what was surely his busiest weekend of the year. Everyone went home happy and the Moms Group and Parish are grateful for the Council's participation in what promises to become an annual St. Walter's tradition.
