My Brother Knights
Brothers, as all the leaves turn brown and the sky turns grey, I would like to give a big shout out to all those who helped with the membership drive this past weekend. Special thanks to Father Donovan for allowing us to address the congregation after each Mass and to sell C&B books outside the Church. We signed up 9 new candidates who will now embark on their journey towards Knighthood and take their 1st and 2nd Degrees on October 17th at our Council in Oceanside. More C&B raffle books have been mailed out so please fill them out and make your $10 checks payable to: K of C #3481 and return them in the self addressed envelope. Remember you are getting 12 chances to win for $10. We are also trying to go paperless in the future and would like to send out most correspondence, like the newsletter, via email. Stay tuned for more information on how to sign up. Not only will going paperless save a boatload of trees, it will save our Council tens of thousands of dollars. VIVAT JESUS! GOD BLESS!
Vivat jesus! God bless,
SK Darab Kevin Lawyer, Grand Knight.
