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.
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.
Father Suresh has asked the Knights to paint the signs in front of Church yellow and/or blue. Most are the handicapped signs. Would you be able to donate a few hours Wednesday, July 1st at 7 PM? We still have refreshments from our cookout. We world love to see you smiling face!
Our January Regular Business Meeting, normally scheduled for the 1st non-holiday Wednesday of the Month (which would have been this Wednesday) has been RESCHEDULED FOR WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 15th. Dinner begins around 6PM. Meeting begins at 7PM.
Next Sunday, January 12th, we are again hosting our Charity Family Breakfast. We have a few Brother Knights and Ladies that are under the weather, so we really need everyone’s help to make it a successful event.
Set a couple of New Year’s Resolutions in 2020 and…
1. Come to more meetings (like the one on January 15th)
2. Help with more Council events (like the one on January 12th)
We hope to see you at the next activity and meeting! God Bless!
VIVAT JESUS! This is just a reminder that there is a Regular Business Meeting on Wednesday, April 4th starting at 7PM in the St. Pius X Social Hall.
We will be opening nominations for Council Officers at that time. If you are interested in helping our Council by becoming an Officer, please attend this meeting. If you would like to know more about a specific position, feel free to attend the meeting or email me (raybilyk(at)kofc3956.org). If you cannot attend the meeting, but are interested in running for a position, please email me as well. (A great PDF pamphlet with descriptions of the Officers and their responsibilities can be found HERE.) After tonight, nominations will be tabled until the May 2nd Regular Business Meeting, where we will ask for nominations once more, close nominations and elect Officers.
A VERY IMPORTANT REMINDER… There are at least 2 Officers (Deputy Grand Knight Dave Sajdak and myself) that will NOT be running for those offices again! We REALLY NEED Brother Knights to step up and run for offices this year. I am serious when I say this: If I can do it, you can also!
NOTE: You must be a 3rd Degree member by June 30th in order to become an Officer. (Don’t worry… there are still 2nd and 3rd Degree Initiations being held before then, including one we are hosting on Sunday, June 24th.)
We will also be discussing our Coffee & Donuts/Membership Drive on Sunday, April 8th, our Charity Family Breakfast and Tootsie Roll Drive on Sunday, April 15th and other upcoming events.
THANK YOU to those of you Brother Knights that have already signed up to help with our Dime Toss Booth. We are looking for more people to assist there and with the Craft Beer Booth that we are handling on Sunday ONLY. To sign up, please follow the link below: https://www.SignUpGenius.com/go/409084BAAAE29ABFF2-2017
If you still have any glasses/cups/mugs for our WORLD FAMOUS Dime Toss Booth, you can bring them in person this weekend. We can always use more!
This festival is very important for us because this is also our MEMBERSHIP DRIVE WEEKEND! We can use EVERYONE who attends to assist in asking eligible Catholics to join us in our good works… that they can see with their own eyes! I’ll make it interesting… FOR EVERY PROPOSER WHO BRINGS IN A NEW MEMBER (and they join us), I WILL GIVE THEM A $5 GIFT CARD FOR LITTLE CAESARS (or a $5 donation in your name to St. Pius)! (No, I don’t get a discount on the pizzas… I wish!) Ask anyone and everyone to join us in the Knights of Columbus!
Next Wednesday, September 6th at 7PM, we will be holding our monthly meeting in the St Pius Social Hall. Please attend if you can. We have a lot to discuss, so we would really like you to know what’s going on.
Hope to see you at the festival this weekend and/or at our meeting next Wednesday!
