Knights of Columbus Council 1796
Dear Brother Knights, April 2019
I would like to thank everyone who helped with the Fish Fries during Lent and the Benefit Fish Fry for
the Measure Up Campaign. We made $1396 from the fish fry, 50/50 & donations in the jugs. The Darke
County Special Olympics is on May 10, 2019, from 9:45 am to 2:00 pm. We will be selling Kettle Corn again
this year to add to the Measure Up Campaign fund. We need about six people to help fill bags and sell.
If you would like to help, call me at 548-2411.
We will start next year’s fish fries on Sept. 20, 2019. The fish fries are the main source of income
for the Council, so your help is greatly appreciated.
“2019 Super Cash Bonanza Charity Campaign” We made our quota for the first turn in and Ray has sent
the tickets and money to the State Council. If you have not purchased your tickets please do so and turn
the ticket stubs and money into Ray Beyke (467-6061) by May 7th so he can get everything sent in to the State by May 10th.
We will be selling Roses after all Masses on Mother’s Day weekend (May 11 & 12) to raise money for the
Darke County Right to Life. If you can help at a Mass call Gary Ayette (547-1757) and let him
know, which one works for you.
There will be a brunch in the school after the 10:30 Mass on April 28th. The Rosary Alter and K of C are
hosting this event. We will need breakfast or lunch foods, that can be delivered to the School any time after
the 8:30 mass. If you can help serve the food, call Cheryl Leugers at 548-9342 and let her know.
Horse Shoe will be starting on May 14th at the hall. If you would like to participate give me a call (548-2411).
Cost is $20 for 10 weeks of pitching on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 pm. The competition is a lot of fun.
Along with pitching the shoes comes a lot of BS ‘n. So feel free to come out and join.
Officers for the next year will be the same.
Next meeting is May 1st at 7:30 pm at the hall. If you have not attended a meeting lately, please come on May 1st
