Three were from Holy Apostles: Brother Rick Lytle became a new member and his wife Mary was there to support him and witness the lessons imparted to those in attendance. Brothers Paul Edwards and James Pavelek went from 1st degree to 3rd degree knights.
Also attending the degree were 3 brothers from Sacred Heart parish Council 899, along with their Grand Knight: Brothers Joseph Marshall, Gerald Galinato, and Gerald Flerchinger. Two of these men were also joined by their wives for this new family oriented ceremonial, emphasizing the recent changes implemented by the Supreme Council.
