Quick now! Why is June 14th a special day? Because it is Flag Day and the Msgr. Meagher Fourth Degree Assembly honored the flag on Wednesday June 13th. The event will begun at 6:00 PM at the Marian Hall. Our Guest of Honor was Father John Echert. Father Echert is pastor of the Churches of Holy Trinity and St. Augustine in South Saint Paul. Father Echert is also an active member of the Minnesota Air National Guard 133rd Airlift Wing. Lt Col. Fr. Echert serves as Military Chaplain.
Our Program included a Flag Raising ceremony at the flag pole followed by a procession to the Knights Room where a picnic dinner was served and then followed by a short program. Gather for this wonderful evening event was family, friends, and brother knights.

We’re looking for Meagher Assembly volunteers to march in the Bloomington Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 28th, 2012. We will assemble at Ziegler’s near 94th Street and Bryant Avenue again. Assemble time is at 8:30 a.m. and the Parade begins at 9:00 a.m. The Parade goes south on Lyndale Avenue to the Bloomington Cemetery (Approximately 103rd Street). We will wear full Regalia. We need volunteers to carry the U.S. Flag and the Meagher Assembly Banner. Larry Branscomb was kind enough to volunteer his red Jeep for the Parade again—thank you, Larry.
We will be looking for ways of transportation back to Ziegler’s after the program at the Bloomington Cemetery—Family members or ? It is great to have transportation for the marchers back to their cars—Thank you.
