GRAND KNIGHT REPORT

Vivat Jesus

The Administrative Year is coming to an end and the next Administrative Year
is upon us. We accomplished many task during the 2017/2018 Year in support
of our four pillars. Right to Life – Feeding the Homeless – Intellectual Disabilities
& Vocations. Each fundraisers gave us additional funds to apply to each of
these pillars and in that process we made a difference. The new Administrative
Year has its own challenges of which we will face with the same attitude that
gave us success in the previous year, as we know much can be accomplished with a combined effort
of all our members. Now in moving forward I would like to thank our membership for the confidence
in electing the new officers for the next Administrative Year, knowing that each of these
Brother Knights will give the time that is needed to provide the council with good direction and
leadership. And thank you to those Brother Knights that held officer positions in the previous year,
your dedication and leadership to the office provided us with much success. So in closing let us continue
as a council to evangelize our faith, support our four pillars and continue to make a difference.

God Bless

Knights of Columbus Update on Activities
It has been a while since we have provided the parish with an update on our various activities. 2018 has been a
busy and productive year for your Knights of Columbus St. Nicholas Council 7011 and this list of just a few of
these activities:
- We recently held our 1st Reverse Raffle. For those of you who did not attend and do not know what a Reverse
Raffle is well it is just what the words say. All the tickets sold are placed in a receptacle and the last ticket
drawn wins the grand prize- either a fixed amount or 50% of the sales proceeds. Well there is a twist to these
rules. The last 5 or 6 people standing have the option of each going for the total prize or opting to split the prize
evenly. In our recently held Reverse Raffle the last 6 standing decided to split the $4,000 prize evenly resulting
in checks of $666.67 to each. The attendees also competed for a 50/50 prize in bingo. In addition there were
certain cash prizes for tickets drawn at random, as well as everyone partaking in a delicious pasta dinner with
cake and drinks. The net proceeds realized from this event will be used to support our Council’s 4 charity pillars,
namely,
- Right to Life
- Support for Seminarians,
- Feeding the Poor, and
- The Mentally Impaired.
We thank all who supported this fundraiser and look forward to an even bigger and better Reverse Raffle
next year.
-In addition in 2018 we had the following events:
- Pro-Life Poster Contest for our youth
- Clergy Appreciation Dinner
- St. Patrick’s Day Dinner
Due to space limitations for this article we cannot list each and every activity and their details but some others include, our Easter Ham Sale, Flag Retirement Ceremony, Tootsie Roll Drive for the Mentally Impaired, as well as our participation in many Church activities, including leading a decade of the rosary, our Corporate Communion, Corpus Christi Procession, Lenten Fish Fries, etc.
We will try to do a better job in the future of communicating all we do and our thanks for all your support.
As always we are looking for new members for our Council. If you are interested in joining our Council please
contact our Grand Knight, Tom Starynchak, at 586-489-8661.
