All:

   In support of our neighbor, Coe College, we've put an ad in this years football program.  In that ad, we've advertised $3.00 1/4lb chili dogs.  We'll serve them before, during and after, all Coe home football games.  More often, if they become popular.  An idea came up that we should have a chili cook off contest and whoever the winner is, we'll name the chili dog after them.  
   What we'd like to do is conduct the chili cook off this Wed at the card drawing.  Keep in mind, we're looking for chili that will go well with a hot dog.  If you're interested, please bring a sample/crock pot of your chili and we'll have small bowls on hand so all can be taste tested.  We'll have a container so everyone in attendance can vote on their favorite.  If your crock is the winner, please be prepared to provide the recipe and your name may go down in 909 history.
   For example, if GK Scott Mohwinkle brings in a sample and he get's the majority of the votes, they'll forever be referred to and advertised as " The Scott Mohwinkle Chili Dog"  




Hope to see you there, and sorry for the short notice but Coe Football starts Sat Sept 5th and we wanted time to prepare

Grand Knight’s Message

I want to thank PGK Charlie Osborn for his service to our council and to all of our Brother Knights who help keep the council moving in the right direction.  As we go forward let us keep in the forefront of our minds the four pillars of the Knights of Columbus: Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.

 

We have many opportunities as Knights to embrace the first pillar, Charity, whether it is volunteering time during a fundraiser, giving financial contributions to our causes, or helping our parishes and outreach programs.  It is great and honorable to help others who we may never meet that benefit from the works we do as Knights.  I applaud your efforts and congratulate you on a job well done.  Let us continue this to be recognized and remembered for the good works we do as Knights.

   

Encourage our Brothers to get involved. Invite them to do work alongside of you.  Together we can accomplish great things.

 

God Bless

Scott Mohwinkle

P.I.D. “Tootsie Roll” Drive

This year’s Tootsie Roll Drive will be held on August 6th, 7th, 8th & 9th.  The sign-up sheet is posted at the club. Please try to donate any amount of time that you can. Remember, Charity is one of the pillars of our organization and what better way to honor that than donating your time for this worthy cause.

This is the one big fundraiser we do annually where we need all Brother Knights on board to make it a success. I know Discovery Living and Special Olympics truly appreciate our contributions to help them continue on their mission.

 

The time slots are marked as 2 hour blocks, and although that’s what we prefer, if you can give an hour or half hour, it would help. This is a great opportunity for children who may need service hours and great way to involve your families.
