We are inviting all interested Knights and their families to the Coats for Kids distribution (through the Coats for Kids Program) our Council is participating in. Our District has amassed well over 150 coats to give away! (Our Council has purchased 96 alone!)
This volunteer opportunity is open to Knights and their families, as well as Catholic men and their families interested in learning more about what we as Knights do!
It will be an enjoyable event for the whole family.
The event is being held next Saturday, December 12th at:
Basilica of Sainte Anne de Detroit
1000 St. Anne St.
Detroit, MI 48216
Volunteers should arrive @ 9:00 am.
The event should end @ 2:00 pm.
Please send Financial Secretary Ray Bilyk an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested in attending so that we can alert the District Deputy.
As stated in last Wednesday’s Business Meeting, I placed the Dues Notices (for Regular and Honorary members) and membership cards (for Honorary Life members) in alphabetical order in the Ushers Room at St. Pius X Church.
Please stop by and pick up yours (and any Brother Knights you might live near) so the Council can save on postage.
On December 15th, the remaining envelopes will be placed in the mail.
Reminder that we are also collecting funds for the State Council’s Take 10 for Charity Program (suggested amount $10) and the Sacred Heart Major Seminary Endowed Scholarship Fund (suggested amount $6). These are voluntary requests.
Besides mailing in your dues/donations, you can also make your payment by credit card (for a $2.00 convenience fee) by heading to https://www.kofc3956.org/pay-dues/
If you have any questions, please free to contact me at email@example.com .
Have a Merry CHRISTmas!
Dear Brother Knights,
