IMPORTANT Council 3956 Meeting Reminder – Wednesday, April 4th at 7PM

My Brother Knights,

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.

Hope to see you all there! God Bless!

NOTICE – Council 3956 Business Meeting MOVED to Wednesday, November 8th and Memorial Mass on Sunday, November 5th at 9:30AM Mass

My Brother Knights,

As I’ve mentioned for the past 4 months, our November Business Meeting has been moved from November 1st to November 8th because Wednesday, November 1st is All Saints’ Day, a Holy Day of Obligation.

Also, on Sunday, November 5th, we will be holding our Council Memorial Mass and Corporate Communion at the St Pius X Parish 9:30AM Mass. Dress for this event is coat and tie. (Please arrive at least 15 minutes earlier so that we can process and sit together.) We hope that all of you can attend, as we have lost some amazing people over the past year!

Fraternally,

Ray Bilyk

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!

I’m attaching a flyer for the festival so you know the hours and what’s happening. Our WORLD FAMOUS Dime Toss Booth will be in the Game Tent, and we’ve also been asked to help on Sunday in the new Beer Garden.

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!

Fraternally yours in Christ,
