Shredding Day

Saturday June 26th the Knights of Columbus Council 13301 sponsored a shredding event at The Church of the Risen Christ parking lot.  Over the four hour event thousands of pounds of paper was shredded and two trucks were filled with electronics that will be safely disposed.  Parishioners steadily came to the parking lot throughout the event and graciously donated $4,000 to offset the cost of the data destruction.  Any of those funds in excess of the cost will be split between the parish and the council.

Knights Sing Christmas Carols To Nursing Home

Knight Matt Hayes organized a night of caroling for residents of a local nursing home.  
From Matt: 
Many thanks to all you for your singing and/or support in making last night a very successful evening.   We proved how horrible singing can still bring joy and laughter.
I look forward to next year and no fear of being in large groups, etc.  Many more will come next year if they hear from us how much fun we had.   It would be awesome to send a group to every home in our parish jurisdiction on the same evening.  
It was so important for the kids to see the residents and their reactions.  The rest of the evening, our kids were asking about why some smiled, some cried and some laid there still, but seemed to be mouthing the words or smiling with their whole face.  They questioned why some were so young and some had braces or helmets.  They really enjoyed it and knew the residents were happy to see us. 
I attached the only pic I got that wasn't blurred.  Imagine how cute the view must have been from the rooms!
Maybe the windows filtered the sound and made us sound angelic?  I can only hope.  
Thanks again and let's keep all those people in our prayers this Christmas!

Non-Event Fundraiser

The pandemic has prevented our council from conducting our normal fund-raising activities during 2020.  Consequently, we have very limited funds available for the charitable contributions we normally make each year.  Attached is a list of the organizations that have received donations from us in the past. These donations were primarily funded by our annual golf fund-raiser, fish fries, and member donations.
If we are unable to raise charitable funds this year, we will have to significantly shorten the list of beneficiaries for 2020 and, compared to prior years, significantly reduce amounts contributed to those organizations that we determine will receive at least some amount from us for 2020.
To mitigate our present shortage of charitable funds, we are soliciting contributions from our members and past sponsors of our annual golf events.  All contributions received by us for this “non-event” fund-raiser will be restricted for donation to 501(c)(3) charities included on our list.  The allocation of available funds to individual organizations will depend on the total amount that becomes available, but in any event, will be finalized by a vote of our membership.
To contribute to our NON-EVENT FUNDRAISER, make your check for any amount you choose, payable to Knights of Columbus Council 13301 and mail it to:
Robert L. Scott, Financial Secretary
