Dear Brother Knights, November 2019
The 18th Annual Best Ball Golf Scramble was a great success again this year. The Golf Scramble was in
memory of Denise Buell per Ted Finnarn’s request. We donated $3092 to the St Mary’s community fund.
Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen, especially all of the sponsors. In the future this will be the
Denise Buell Memorial golf scramble for all of the support Denise gave to this event.
Thanks to everyone who helped with Prairie Days. Special thanks to Paul Mueller for supplying the equipment to prepare the food and making the Kettle Corn. Profit for the weekend was $1069.
I would like to thank those who help lead the Rosary at the 8:30 Mass in October.

Many area Knights of Columbus councils are collaborating on a pro-life project with Elizabeth New Life Center in Sidney. We are raising money for a new Ultrasound machine (approximately $23,000). The remaining half will be matched by the K of C Supreme Council and it’s culture of life fund. Our council will be helping in raising this money. If you can donate to this cause make your checks out the Knights of Columbus Council 1796, write Ultrasound in the memo and mail it to Luke Stachler 6235 Beamsville Webster Rd.

Dear Friend of Christ
Many area Knights of Columbus councils are collaborating on a pro-life project with Elizabeth New Life Center in Sidney. This project will have an immense impact on our area, it will save lives and prevent abortions.
This fundraising effort will help the Elizabeth Center, which services our area of K of C districts. Purchase a new ultrasound machine. Our goal is to raise half the money of a new ultrasound machine--approximately $23, 000. The remaining half will be matched by the K of C Supreme Council and its Culture of Life Fund.
We know this is a challenge, but once a mother sees the image of the baby from the ultrasound image the chances increase dramatically at keeping the baby. Now is the time for Knights of Columbus members and friends to step up and contribute to this life-saving initiative.
We are asking if you would be interested in helping fund the Ultrasound Project. To do so, make your check out to Knights of Columbus Council 1796, write Ultrasound in the memo and send your check to Grand Knight Luke Stachler at 6235 Beamsville Webster Rd. Versailles, Ohio 45380. Individual Contributions are tax deductible.
We would like to have these funds raised by December 15, 2019.
We will forward the money we raise to the Coldwater Council, who is the coordinator of this project. As a Knights of Columbus and practicing Catholics, you are aware of how important a pro-life cause like this is to our organization and community. Please contribute and join us in this historical pro-life effort for our area. It’s an effort that will have an immediate, positive impact in our communities. If you have any questions, please call me at 937-548-2411.
