Photos – Knights Help At Special Olympics

From Rick Gall:  While it was a shorter day than expected at the Softball Skills venue, it was no less satisfying to the athletes. Thanks for helping make it a great day for them! There were 26 volunteers from K of C Council 9880 and St. Raphael at Lions Park. Your time, effort, and service are most appreciated! As always, it was a pleasure to volunteer with you!

Slate of Officers

Below is the proposed slate of Officer Candidates for coming year. A few of these are currently unfilled, and we are working to have a full slate. If you are interested in being considered, or if you would like to nominate someone else, please let our officers know. Make sure that you talk to the people you nominate – they’ll have to accept it. The Council will vote in a month and a half on June 12, 2018.

Council Elections This Month

This is the month when the council elects new officers for the upcoming year. The new fraternal year begins on July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019. Any 3rd Degree member can serve as officer. I am listing the duties for each office. Anyone wishing to serve in an office can see what is expected of them. Look them over careful and the one that interest you please let the trustees know so your name can be put up for election. Our council needs guys with fresh ideas who wish to help serve the council, the church, and the community.
