THE DOOR IS OPEN – Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place while supporting their Church and protecting and enhancing their family life. All the good works we do are based on our four core principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism. Contact Rich Anderson (659-3523) for more information about joining this great organization or visit our website at www.kofc12992.com.
Congratulations to Harold Lepper for winning the 50/50 drawing at our meeting in November. Dale Bax was the Attendance Award winner, but was not present to collect so the pot grows to $120. Every member of our Council is eligible to win.
