                               Knights of Columbus Council 1796


Dear Brother Knights,                                                                                             February 2020

We have two new members this year. They are Troy Winners & Jim Straub. Our quota for this year is NINE new members so we need to get Seven more members. If you know of anyone (son or grandson) who would make a good Knight, please ask him if he would be interested in joining. If you need a form 100 please let me know. (937-548-2411)


“2020 Super Cash Bonanza Charity Campaign” has been kicked off. You will be receiving (6) tickets through the mail to sell or buy. Ray Beyke is the ticket chairman, so if you need more tickets contact him at 937-467-6061. The majority of the money we make from this campaign goes to St Mary’s School. For the first turn in, get your tickets sent to Ray Beyke by April 10th. For the second turn in have them to him by May 5th.           The State Council would like to raise $1,000,000,000 this year. If each council can increase their sales by 15% this goal can be met. Last year along with the St Mary’s school we sold 729 tickets. If we increase our sales by 15% that would mean we need to sell 839 ticket or 6.25 tickets per member. If we sell 7 tickets per member (938) we will get an extra 40 cents per ticket sold providing we meet the First Phase turn in of 201

tickets by April 15th. So I am asking you to please buy and SELL, SELL, SELL.


The Supreme Council has come out with a new process for becoming a Knight. They have released the new Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity, which replaces the old 1st, 2nd and 3rd degrees. With this new

Exemplification the candidates can invite their families and friends to attend the ceremony. The DVD has not

been released at this time, once we get the DVD we will be using the new Exemplification for new members.

This will make it so much easier to get the new members through the three degrees.


The Lenten fish fry schedule is Feb. 28th, March 6, 13, 20, 27 and April 3rd. We are always in need for help so if you can help out, let me know either by phone (937-548-2411) or email [email protected]


On April  24th we will be having a Benefit Fish Fry for our Measure Up Campaign. The money we raise from

this Fish Fry will go to the Darke County Special Olympics. So mark your calendar and plan on eating out. Bring a family member or friend with you.

God Bless
