  • This one was added by Jackie, and Patti said these are being hosted (unlike previous years) at St. Peter’s Church at 1881 Kaneville Road in Geneva. The Knights of Columbus website and newsletter are unclear on the times, but it looks like they are taking place on March 17, March 24 and April 7.

  • Note that based on the St. Peter’s bulletin, there will be no fish fry on Friday, March 10, and the Friday, March 17, event will feature a traditional St. Patrick’s Day meal of corned beef and cabbage, etc. Unclear if fish will also be offered.
