The dates for our charity poker event have been changed. The new dates are May 11-14. The only issue I see is May 11 is Mothers Day. We will need 2 workers for each shift. Please volunteer to work this event to raise funds for the council charities. Please contact Mike Gray with questions.
Every Monday is Senior Corner at Sunnybrook11:00 till 3:00
The St Cyril's Festival is August 22-24 and in the past we were doing the 50/50. At the festival meeting they are going to have someone else run the 50/50. They requested that the Knights help with parking and security when both areas need lots of help. They feel that we would be much more helpful in these position. Any questions contact Rick (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The holidays are past and we have a few more projects to accomplish. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tom Starynchak for his hard work in getting us to the goal for “one member per month per council’. We have gained over fourteen new members to date.
At the last meeting I have brought up the idea of resorting the Ladies of the Auxiliary. I have asked Paul Smith to talk to his wife about running this project. Thru the grape vine I have heard that she was receptive to doing this task. We need to get the ladies involved in our endeavors and that they have a place to feel part of the K of C for the widows. I will keep you informed about the progress of this task.
We have had a good turnout for the District Corporate Communion at St. Rene’s on Jan 12. The breakfast was good and I want to thank Bob and Kathy Pawlik, Gerri and Jim Stelzer for doing the job of cooking and serving that day. As a side note, Father Steve gave a very impassioned speak about the K of C and why to join us. This worked on Deacon Dave and he has submitted his form 100 to us. We have more breakfasts coming up on the second Sunday of the month so please plan on attending and helping. The more members we have helping the less work we have to do. So please come and help us at these breakfasts. The money from them goes to the M.I. fund or other charitable causes. It also is a good spot to recruit new members.
The St, Rene’s Men’s Club is hosting a Chili Cook Off on February 15. A few of the members are going to help them in this project. They have the youth group helping them serve the chili and they will be selling hot dogs, French fries and pop. They will need help in the kitchen. This group of gentlemen has the same problem we HAD in that their numbers are dwindling. So if we can help them it would be greatly appreciated by the group. It will take place after 4:00pm Mass on that Saturday. Someone approached me about if we had a squires group, I told them no. If anyone wants to take on the task of starting the Squires I would be glad to help them get it started. We have a lot of young people in both parishes that I think would be willing to join.
I am getting too long winded in this article, come to the next meeting and join the regulars. If you know of a past member that is not active invite him to the next meeting. All are welcome to St Nick’s!
Jim Pawlik Grand Knight
Brother Knights and family members,
You and your families are cordially invited to attend our "Corporate Communion Mass" on Saturday MARCH 29TH, 2014 at the 4:00 PM Mass at St. Cyril and Methodius Catholic Church .
You might ask "What is a Corporate Communion"? Twice per year, the council members and their families attend Mass as a corporate body to worship and pray together. This is a great witness for any men, married or single, who may be interested in the Knights. So it would be wonderful to see you there. There will also be reserved seating for Knights and their families. The 4th degree will be attending. Please arrive 15 minutes early (3:45 pm) for procession into mass. We are an active Council with several new members, so use this time to get to know some of your brother Knights and families. After holy mass the knights and family members are invited for coffee and cake in one of the rooms located in the church hall.
Look forward to seeing you!!
