Michigan Columbian Squires Winter Outing

I’m writing this from Msgr. Hunt Council #3312, which sponsors St. Francis deSales Circle #758. From what I could remember, this is the first time that this circle has hosted an outing at their sponsoring council. We are heading to The Fridge, the first and only refrigerated toboggan run in Michigan. It snowed about one inch so far today, and it was coming down pretty good the last time I looked. It should make for a good time.

I really miss these guys here. Seeing Fred Mainville (State Squires Director) and Bruce Hopkins (State Chief Squire) taking care of the business here in Michigan does me proud to be a member and a past State Squires Officer. One of these days, I’m going to sit down and write all I can think about or remember about the Michigan Columbian Squires. I have made friendships here that will last a lifetime.

    Im glad to see that there is a way that i can keep up with my old circle and council.Please give me any and all information on the progress of St.Francis desales….
    I am curently the youth director of a newly formed Knights council in Batesville Mississippi. My hope is to start a Squires program here as well….
    I tryed that in the past and there was just not enough Catholic youth in the area…..
    Any support and communication would be of great help and inspiration to me an this ambition.

    Yours in the youth of Christ,
