Order Hats NOW!

From Jim Rispoli: Brother Knights, here is the link to the web site for the Ball Caps. We would order the KofC logo on the front, and on the back it would have 9880. The price for these is $19.00 plus tax. The minimum order, as with shirts, will be six.

Order Shirts NOW!

From Jim Rispoli:  Brother Knights, You will recall my earlier emails about our plan to order logo shirts for our Council. These shirts will all have our KofC with St.Raphael Council 9880, above the pocket on the left side. During our last Council business meeting, we discussed this again. At this time, I am putting out the “final call” for orders for shirts.

More KnightLife Publications Archived – Jan 2000 – June 2002

Thanks to the thoughtfulness of brother John Gunther, 2 and a half more years of editions of the KnightLife have been added to the archive.  Click Here and make your way down to the years 2000-2002.  Thanks John!  Just for kicks, take a look at what this council was doing 10 and 20 years ago.  I especially like the group photo for September, 2008.

Phil joined us for the ceremony, and plenty of photos were taken. Click [Continue] for photos.

Possible Meals before Council Meetings

From Jim Rispoli:  At the July Council meeting, we discussed the possibility of having a meal prior to our monthly Council meetings.  This is an initial survey, to get an idea of how many of us Brother Knights would be interested.  We would need to figure out the logistics, and will proceed only if enough of us reply to this email having interest.
