K of C May News Letter
Knights of Columbus Council 1796
Dear Brother Knights, August 2021
Here it is the end of August and summer is gone. The Great Darke County fair is almost over and school will begin next week. I hope everyone had a great summer.
I would like to thank those who helped at the Gathering at the Garst in July. We had very a successful event.
Everyone did a great job. Thanks to Gary Ayette for taking the lead in getting all of the help for the event.
Thanks to everyone who helped cook and serve food at the Light Foundation Gauntlet on July 31st.
Thanks to Gary Ayette and his crew, who sold Roses on Mother’s Day after all masses. We raised $799 for the Darke County Right to life.
We have updated the restrooms in the hall with new toilets. They are all handicap assessable. I want to thank Dick Schumaker, John Trittschuh and Jim Leugers for installing the new toilets.
The Shrine / K of C dinner in June was a very enjoyable evening. I want to thank Dale Crandall for getting
the guest speaker, Blake Giere, marketing manager for Eldora Speedway. He gave an informative talk about
events at the speedway. He also received much information about experiences at the speedway from those
attending the dinner. I hope you got to read the article in the Advocate by Carol Marsh, if not it is posted at
Prairie Days is coming up on Sept. 25th & 26th. We will need lots of help with cooking and selling food on both days. This is a good fund raiser for the council. The time slots for working, are Saturday 9 am to 1 pm
and 1 pm to 5 pm. Sunday is 11 am to 2 pm and 2 pm to 5 pm. If you can help out in any of these time slots
let me know (937-548-2411) or email. We will be needing about 6 people on Friday Sept. 24th to help set up
for the weekend. If you can help out with the set up let me know at (937-548-2411) or email.
On August 17th we served lunch in the park to about 45 people with the Antique Car Club from Defiance Ohio. This was good publicity for our council and was greatly appreciated by those attending. I want to thank
Dale Crandall for taking charge of this event and Ray Beyke, Kenny Pence and Max Litke for helping.
Upcoming events: Fish Fries for 2021 are Sept. 17th, Oct. 15th and Nov.19th 4:30 to 7:00 PM. We will be serving meals inside as of now. Hopefully this does not change. We do need lots of help, so if you can help please let me know (937-548-2411) or email.
Next meeting is Thursday Sept. 2nd at 7:30 pm. If you are not doing anything, come to the meeting and see what is going on in the council.
We will be leading the Rosary at the 8:30 mass in October. If you want to help, be at church by 8:00 am.
