Brother Knights and Friends, Attached is your K of C newsletter for April, 2021. We are busy and getting busier. Nomination and election of Officers is upon us.

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.
Please be informed that our monthly meeting will be this Wednesday the 4th of November. It is imperative that everyone try to attend. This is an important time of year for the Knights. We have much to discuss. St. Pius X Church Social Hall at 6pm.
It is with sadness to inform you of the passing of Former Financial Secretary and Sir Knight James (Jim) Duke on October 27th.
