My Brother Knights
Hope you all are well and as always staying safe. February came in with a bang - quite the snow storm for some of us. Our blood drive in January was a huge success - 38 pints. Our next drive will be in March and more details will follow soon. Please be sure to check out the events below that we have coming up. We may not be able to have the gatherings we would like to have, we are however continuing to raise funds for our charities and support our council. All suggestions and ideas are welcomed so feel free to contact me if you have an idea for a fundraising event. Please remember membership meetings are held the 1st Thursday of each month at 7pm in the Grand Ballroom. Even in these difficult times our membership continues to grow. Spread the word about our Council and encourage your friends and family to join! Contact SK Don Morgan, Warden at 917-371-3291 for information on membership. Be sure stay in touch and keep on top of events by visiting our website www.knightsofcolumbusoceanside.com or visit us on social media Facebook. Thank you all for your support!
Vivat jesus! God bless,
